Tattoos in Mayberry

52,360 poems read

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.

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 called me
"Cousin It."
It's hard to be uncool in school.
very hard in school to be uncool.

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.

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 to be uncool in school.
Very hard in school to be uncool.

Didn't shower with the other boys or girls.
Had no diamonds, 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,
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.

So, 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.
