"Let down" as written by and Kevin Paul Kadish....
I had a job in about a year,
Living down in my parents base-ment.
I wish that I could get out of here,
Sometimes I think I need a vacation

Get my mother off my back
She won't go far to go and drive me crazy,
Some day that bitch is gonna make me crack,
Might be the last time she calls me baby.

I'm a letdown, Pardon me?
If I'm a letdown, don't have a family.
I'm a let down, uh 1, 2, 3!
If I'm a letdown, are you like me?

And now my sisters got a fancy car,
I've got a piece of shit from 1980
But at least I've got my two guitars
A one way ticket to nowhere Baby!

I'm a letdown, Pardon me?
If I'm a letdown, don't have a family.
I'm a letdown, uh 1, 2, 3!
If I'm a letdown, are you like me?
Are you like me?
Are you like me?
Oh yeah, yeah!

Now I've got a dream,
You don't understand.
It won't be long,
I'm not what I've seen,
See I've got a plan.
That's right!

I have to act like I don't exist,
Or else they treat me like I'm slim to nothing.
There is no resentment more than this
When we're done I might be 27!

I'm a letdown, Pardon me?
If I'm a letdown, don't have a family.
I'm a letdown, uh 1, 2, 3!
If I'm a letdown, are you like me?
Are you like me?
Are you like me?!

    General CommentHow can this song not have any comments yet? Bif Naked is amazing. The meaning is obvious. She wants to make it big, and her parents see her as a letdown to the family. And her family doesn't realize it.

    General CommentCool song right here. Her parents obviously belittle her dreams and herself and so she's seen as the rebel child. Whether y'all have said the mother verse to your moms out loud or not, we can all relate to this song.

    General CommentBelittled and misunderstood, she has dreams of being a rock star, but to her family, she is a let down; a dreamer; hasn't had a job in a year...

    But she sure brings in the dead presidents now! Listen, parents! Your kids may be dreaming, but if they're determined and don't crack under your pressure, they'll realise them.
