We are like kids in a play
Set in the Victorian age
We only know what to say
Because we practiced at home
Or rehearsed on the bus
Next to kids just like us
Who couldn't help but think we were weird

And you would open your mouth and it would kill me
Just start to speak of the South, like I had been there
And you would forgive yourself as you map my words
I think it's your turn to leave and throw a fit
And I will mumble and grieve and then sigh
Brings the crowd to their feet and almost makes you cry

What if no one comes
What if we get bored
Will you fit my clothes
If we should switch roles
Here we go

We’re like kids in a play
Set in the Victorian age
We only know what to say
Because we practiced at home
Or we rehearsed on the bus
Next to kids just like us
Who couldn't help but think, they couldn’t help it
They couldn’t help it (x3)

    Lyric CorrectionI thought it went more cleverer:

    We are like kids in a play
    Set in the Victorian Age
    We only know what to say
    Because we practiced at home
    or we rehearsed on the bus
    Next to kids just like us
    Who couldn't help but think
    we were weird.
    (ha, ha, ha...Mmmmmmm)

    And I would open my mouth
    And you would cue me
    I'd start to speak of the South
    Like I'd been there
    and you would forget yourself
    As you mouthed my words

    I think it's your turn to leave
    and throw a fit
    And I will mumble and grieve in an aside
    It brings the crowd to their feet
    and almost makes you cry

    (Mmmmm....Yeaaah)
    (Ah, uh-ah, ah ah-uh, ah uh-uh-uh-ah-ah-ah)

    What if no one comes?
    What if we get bored?
    Will you fit my clothes?
    We should switch roles

    We are like kids in a play
    Set in the Victorian Age
    We only know what to say because we
    practiced at home
    Or we rehearsed on the bus
    Next to kids just like us
    Who couldn't help but think,
    they couldn't help it

    (Hey? You guys wanna start a playhouse?)
