I used to sit alone and wonder what it would be like to be famous without you right by my side
I wondered so hard I used to cry myself to sleep
But then I realized I was stepping on your feet, stepping on your feet

As I'm sitting in my bed thinking about the things you said I am trying hard to be the best that I can be
I never thought I'd see you cry
When I told you things I'd tried
Cause I'm trying hard to be the best I can be

What can I do, what can I say?
I tried mom, I tried mom, I tried mom to be the best that I can be

When I used to go get gas
I would see your ugly ass
Staring at me through the shiny window at Blimpie's
And when I'd see you running there
You'd remind me of a hare
Then I'd remember to be the best that I can be

What can I do, what can I say? I thought I made it okay today. What can I do, what can I say? Let's see where this brings me
