She had golden curls and a great big smile
Her name was Sue Marie
She joined our school new one year
And soon she had more friends than me
Her mother became the head of the board
Smiled at the principal's chair
Everyone laughed with Sue Marie
If it was happening she was there

Nobody gets a free ride
Nobody gets a free ride
Ask anybody who's tried
Nobody gets a free ride

She graduated at the head of the class
It was so bittersweet
She said to make every moment count
It's easy when you've got a world at your feet
She was in the front of every photograph
Or else her mother complained
Her memories were one big parade
While I was out in the rain

Nobody gets a free ride
Nobody gets a free ride
Ask anybody who's tried
Nobody gets a free ride

Four years since I walked that walk
Looking so far back when
I heard Sue Marie moved on somewhere else
Never heard of her again, well
Haven't you met my parents?
Don't you know who I am?
When you're outside your little kingdom
Nobody really gives a damn

Nobody gets a free ride
Nobody gets a free ride
Ask anybody who's tried
Nobody gets a free ride
