5. ALPHABET BOY

ALPHABET BOY LYRICS

 

Always aiming paper and planes at me when you're around

(boy tries to get her attention by annoying her, worded in  a childish way)

You build me up like building blocks just so you can tear me down

(gives her complements, but also uses them against her)

You can crush my candy cane, but you'll never catch me cry

(in other words -you can try to bring me down, but I wont let you see that it hurts me)

If you dangle that diploma and I deck you, don’t be surprised

(don’t rub your achievement's in my face or I'll punch you)

 

I know my ABC's, yet you keep teaching me

(I know what I'm doing. stop Trying to tell me how to live my life)

I say, fuck your degree, alphabet boy

You think you're smarter than me

With all your bad poetry

Fuck all your ABC's, alphabet boy

(fuck your advice)

 

I'm not a little kid now
(stop treating me like a child)

Watch me get big now
(I'll show you I can handle myself)

Spell my name on the fridge now
(I'm moving slowly, but getting there)

With all your alphabet toys
You won the spelling bee now

But are you smarter than me now?
(you may be better than me, but not for long)

you're the prince of the playground
(top dog)

Little alphabet boy

 

Apples aren't always appropriate apologies
(give me a real apology)

Butterscotch and bubblegum drops are bittersweet to me
(getting my forgiveness isn't going to be that easy)

You call me a child while you keep counting all your coins
(you call me out, but you're the one struggling)

But you're not my daddy and I'm not your dolly
(you're not in charge of me, you cant control me)

And your dictionary's destroyed

(you've got nothing above me now!)

 

I know my ABC's yet you keep teaching me 

I say, fuck your degree, alphabet boy
You think you're smarter than me with all your bad poetry
Fuck all your ABC's, alphabet boy

 

I'm not a little kid now
Watch me get big now
Spell my name on the fridge now
With all your alphabet toys

You won the spelling bee now
But are you smarter than me now?
You're the prince of the playground
Little alphabet boy

Alphabet boy
My alphabet boy
(mocking him)

Alphabet boy
Alphabet boy
My alphabet boy

Ooh ooh

I'm not a little kid now
Watch me get big now
Spell my name on the fridge now
With all your alphabet toys
You won the spelling bee now
But are you smarter than me now?
You're the prince of the playground
Little alphabet boy
