"The Best Damn Thing" as written by Avril Ramona Lavigne and Butch Walker....
Let me hear you say: "hey, hey, hey" (Hey, hey, hey)
All right, now let me hear you say: "hey, hey, ho" (Hey, hey, hey)

I hate it when a guy doesn't get the door
Even though I told him yesterday and the day before
I hate it when a guy doesn't get the tab
And I have to pull my money out, and that looks bad

Where are the hopes, where are the dreams
My Cinderella story scene?
When do you think they'll finally see

That you're not, not, not gonna get any better
You won't, won't, won't, you won't get rid of me never
Like it or not, even though she's a lot like me
We're not the same

And, yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm a lot to handle
You don't know trouble, I'm a hell of a scandal
Me, I'm a scene, I'm a drama queen
I'm the best damn thing that your eyes have ever seen

All right, all right
Yeah

I hate it when a guy doesn't understand
Why a certain time of month I don't want to hold his hand
I hate it when they go out, and we stay in
And they come home smelling like their ex-girlfriend

But I found my hopes, I found my dreams
My Cinderella story scene
Now everybody's gonna see

That you're not, not, not gonna get any better
You won't, won't, won't, you won't get rid of me never
Like it or not, even though she's a lot like me
We're not the same

And, yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm a lot to handle
You don't know trouble, I'm a hell of a scandal
Me, I'm a scene, I'm a drama queen
I'm the best damn thing that your eyes have ever seen

Give me an A, always give me what I want
Give me a V, be very, very good to me
R, are you gonna treat me right?
I, I can put up a fight
Give me an L, let me hear you scream loud (let me hear you scream loud)

One, two, three, four

Where are the hopes, where are the dreams
My Cinderella story scene?
When do you think they'll finally see

That you're not, not, not gonna get any better
You won't, won't, won't, you won't get rid of me never
Like it or not, even though she's a lot like me
We're not the same

And, yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm a lot to handle
You don't know trouble, I'm a hell of a scandal
Me, I'm a scene, I'm a drama queen
I'm the best damn thing that your eyes have ever seen

Let me hear you say: "hey, hey, hey" (Hey, hey, hey)
All right, now let me hear you say: "hey, hey, hey" (Hey, hey, hey)

(Hey, hey, hey)
(Hey, hey, hey)
(Hey, hey, hey)
(Hey, hey, hey)

I'm the best damn thing that your eyes have ever seen

    General Commenti totally agree with limoncello182. What's the point of commenting on a song you don't even fucking like? What's it gonna do? You aren't even mentioning the proper meaning of the song, just slamming it. Jeez.
    And Avril is all about girl power! She's not about girl's getting treated like grass and stepped on, she's about telling boys that they CANT step on her like grass. The Best Damn Thing is pretty awesome, too, if you think of it in the way how she's telling a guy that she's been in love with for a long time that she's the best damn thing he'll ever see, because he's - sorry if i get all old skool on you or anything - attraacted to her and same way back. easy.

    General CommentWow! This is kinda strange! I'm gonna feel really awkward for mentioning this; but no one has actually tried to describe this song yet.
    Yay! i get to be the first to take a shot at it...

    This sounds like one of them High School girls who gets whatever they want whenever they want!
    You know, a cheerleader, perfect body, popular, feels like her life is better than everyone eles, and takes her looks for granted. Basiclly THE BEST DAMN THING that we've ever seen.
    This song is probabily about one of those kind of girls having a boyfriend that she stole from someone eles. However, the guy probabily doesn't wanna be with her, and her responce to that is...
    "I'm the best damn thing that your eyes have ever seen"


    Overall, my thoughts on the song were 'this would be a perfect song for the movie: Mean Girls.' Lol

    General Commentlol i agree with lonelyemoboy

    tho to me it kinda sounds like a run off of girlfriend for some reason, just the same type of sound i guess.
