You got your tongue pierced once and you say you got another
That you can't show anyone unless its under covers
But you're running around showing everyone your new tattoo.

You got an A in class and you hoped 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 boys' 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 ya
You're beautiful the way you are

And your momma's so happy you became a cheerleader
Homecoming queen, just like your older sister
(I'm not sure about the next bit so instead of making something up
And looking a fool ill leave it blank, soz)

Don't matter what they think
Cause 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, yeh
Everybody's got their scars
Never mind how lucky they are
No matter what they tell ya
You're beautiful the way you are

Oh the way you are
Oh the way you are
Oh 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 ya
You're beautiful the way you are

You're a star
The way you are
You know you not fooling anyone
No you got the eyes of an angel
Don't try to change, yeah
Everybody's got their scars
Never mind how lucky they are
No matter what they tell ya
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
No matter what they tell ya
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 Comment:Favorite 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 Comment:aww 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.
