"The Star Song" as written by Jaret Ray Reddick and Butch Walker....

You got your tongue pierced once
and you say you got another
that you can't show anyone unless it's under covers
But you're running around showing everyone your new tattoo
You got an A in class and you hope no one would notice
You're the smartest kid in school and it makes you self conscious
And your loser boyfriend's smoking out in the boy's room
I wish someone would tell you

you're a star the way you are
You know you're not fooling anyone, no
You got the eyes of an angel
Don't try to change, yeah
Everybody's got their scars
no matter what they tell you you're beautiful the way you are

And your mama's so happy you became a cheerleader
Homecoming queen just like your older sister
'til you died your hair pink and they said what were you drinkin
And it never did sink in
it don't matter what they think

you're a star the way you are
You know you're not fooling anyone, no
You got the eyes of an angel
Don't try to change, yeah
Everybody's got their scars
nevermind how ugly they are
no matter what they tell you you're beautiful the way you are

all the way you are
all the way you are
all the way you are

you're a star the way you are
You know you're not fooling anyone, no
You got the eyes of an angel
Don't try to change, yeah
Everybody's got their scars
no matter what they tell you you're beautiful the way you are

you're a star the way you are
You know you're not fooling anyone, no
You got the eyes of an angel
Don't try to change, yeah
Everybody's got their scars
nevermind how ugly they are
no matter what they tell you you're beautiful the way you are

you're a star the way you are
You know you're not fooling anyone, no
You got the eyes of an angel
no matter what they tell you you're beautiful the way you are
no matter what they tell you you're beautiful the way you are
no matter what they tell you you're beautiful the way you are

    General CommentFavorite song this cd!!

    I think this song goes out to people who are constantly changing. They are continuely trying to find themselfs, and in the process ,people get mad, turn their backs and say mean things and what not. Basically just a song saying that be who you want, do what you want you are who you are, who cares what the others things.

    General Commentaww this song is so pretty. i love when bowling for soup randomly breaks out into a serious song! anyway, yea i think this song is all about girls in high school. there are always going to be many people you're trying to please: parents, techers, friends, boys. But the lesson is that you can't keep everyone satisfied. Eventually you have to just give up on what everyone else wants and be yourself.
