"Misfit" as written by Rob Hyman and Cyndi Lauper....
So you think you got it all worked out,
You got your hot pants on,
You got your arse right out
You, think that you weren't something special,
Me and my drag dress we won't do at all,
I spent so long trying to fit the prototype
Kept just sticking in years
And I never got it right oh

What's the use?
What's the point?
You got the wrong girl!

So you do what,
You're doing there,
'Cause ill be flying higher,
Waste your own time,
I don't care

Anything you can do
I can do better!

All you girls you
Look up if if you can handle when I'm still here
Well
Your superficial I'm a misfit
But baby that's ok
All you girls when
You look into the mirror tell me how do you appear
Well
Your superficial I'm a misfit
Your superficial I'm a misfit
But that's ok.

So you got your little groups and gangs
You got your VIP
Your member only, things
You happy clappers
And your VC crew
And if you get in their way
They got ten on you

I don't want to be in that game
Don't want to follow the leader
No way

What's the use?
What's the point?
You got the wrong girl!

So you do what,
You're doing there,
'Cause ill be flying higher,
Waste your own time,
I don't care,

Anything you can do
I can do better!

All you girls you
Look up if if you can handle when I'm still here
Well
Your superficial I'm a misfit
But baby that's ok
All you girls when
You look into the mirror tell me how do you appear
Well,
Your superficial I'm a misfit
Your superficial I'm a misfit
Your superficial I'm a misfit

So what we don't look the same
So what we don't
So what we don't
So what I don't play your game
So what I don't
So what I don't
So what if I don't?

All you girls you
Look up if if you can handle when I'm still here
Well
Your superficial I'm a misfit
But baby that's ok
All you girls when
You look into the mirror tell me how do you appear
Well,
Your superficial I'm a misfit
Your superficial I'm a misfit

All you girls you
Look up if if you can handle when I'm still here
Well
Your superficial I'm a misfit
But baby that's ok
All you girls when
You look into the mirror tell me how do you appear
Well,
Your superficial I'm a misfit
Your superficial I'm a misfit
Your superficial I'm a misfit
But that's ok

    General CommentI totally LOVE this song!! It's giving out a message to people that you should be who you want to be and who you are instead of being a sheep and trying to do whatever is 'in' or 'cool'. It's way cooler to just be yourself anyway!! :D

    General CommentThis song rules! It's like, you're a barbie, but I don't care. You do what you want, and I'll do what I want. But don't tell me to change my ways, I'm fine the way I am. And it's so true. Poeple are fashion addicts!

    General CommentYou go girl!!
    This song has a great feel to it, with a real kick-arse message of "I'm not gonna act like you just because it's 'cool', I'm proud to be my own person"

    Also, apparently, the "Happy Clappies" and "V.C. Crew" were some of the cliques that existed in Amy's school. Anyone seen Mean Girls? I think this is a good supplement to that film!

    General Comment"You're superficial, I'm a misfit" basically means you are superficial because you are a sheep and just follow everyone else, I may not be 'cool' but at least i'm my own person!

    Well that's what I think anyway!

    General CommentThis song is actually immense. Hurrah for the right message!
    *Ahem*
    Anyway, aren't the lyrics "me and my DRAB dress we won't do at all", not "drop dress"? What's a drop dress?

    General CommentYeah, the others have basically said it all..following the crowd isn't the only way to go and sometimes it's cool to be yourself. This is one of my fave songs ever

    My InterpretationIt's about bullying. In the first verse, Amy says that she tried to fit in with the popular kids at her school but failed miserably and decided that you don't have to just live the way the popular kids live. In the second verse, Amy describes the cliques at her high school and what happens when you cross them. In the chorus, it looks like she is confronting the bullies by saying that she is better than they are by not stooping to their immature levels when they bully her. In the bridge, she basically says that if we all looked the way the popular kids do, the world would be boring.
