Organically, forever shy.
with tangled hair
that's me oh my.
Sittin in a chair
that doesn't fit.
I tried to talk
but could only spit.
My friends,
they'd call me
"Cousin It."
It's hard in school to be uncool.
Very hard to be uncool. in school.

Trippin' over scuffed brown saddle shoes
Flippin' coins,I'd always lose.
My sisters read my diary
When the girls would flirt
I'd have to pee.
It's hard to be uncool in school
Very hard in school to be uncool

My parents prayed that I would leave
but all I did 
was eat and heave
Sittin' cross eyed
in my little room.
where I'd contemplate
my doom and gloom.
It's hard in school to be uncool
So very hard  to be uncool in school.

My secret crush, she turned out gay
At prom,we didn't have much to say
We watched the pretty girls dance anyway
How could my life turn out this way.
It's hard to be uncool in school
Very hard in school to be uncool.

Didn't shower with the other boys or girls.
Had no diamond studs, or cultured pearls.
I'll give you just one wild guess.
you got it man,
I was a mess.

It's hard in school to be uncool
Very hard to be uncool in school. 

They hoisted snug underwear
over my head.
when the girls said hi,
I wished I was dead.
All the other kids'd
stop gasp and stare.
You see, I didn't go much of anywhere.

It's hard to be
uncool in school.
very hard in school
to be uncool.

If now or once
you were uncool
I dedicate this
all to you.
Don't get angry
don't feel blue.
Just ''cause I remember you, I do.
When you were uncool in school too.
