lyrics

I like to skate at 2 in the afternoon
when the park is devoid of teenage boys
cause I don't want them to see me like that
but I do want them to see me

and I feel like Britney Spears when she shaved her hair
cause I know I look good in my underwear
but I don't want you to see me like that
but I do want you to see me

and all the girls in cartoons have bows in their hair
all the boys in cartoons don't have anything

when I open my mouth, high pitched sounds come out
and you have no idea what I'm talking about
and I don't want you to hear me like that
but I do want you to hear me

and I could be the star of your private fiction
warm the engines of your late-night cyber sex addiction
but I don't want you to text me like that
but I do want you to text me

and all the girls in cartoons have bows in their hair
all the boys in cartoons don't have anything
and we could be friends if I was taller
