Started writing all my dreams in pencil
Makes it easy when they let me down
Started marking my words with a stencil
Make too much noise and they will flush you out-out-out-out

How they love shooting down birds that dare to fly too high
I’ll be the cagey bird scared to try

I’ll be the girl with the heart tainted yellow
Braving it under my safest umbrella
Stuffing my pig full of pennies in vain
Saving my soul up and waiting for rain

They will put you down when you’re the top cat
And pick you up when you’re the underdog
So all the nice girls learn to hold themselves back
Got good at getting in my way because-cause-cause-cause

How they love shooting down birds that dare to fly too high
I’ll be the cagey bird scared to try

I’ll be the girl with the heart tainted yellow
Braving it under my safest umbrella
Stuffing my pig full of pennies in vain
Saving my soul up and waiting for rain

Oh say can you see
One more casualty

I’ll be the girl with the heart tainted yellow
Braving it under my safest umbrella
Stuffing my pig full of pennies in vain
Saving my soul up and waiting for rain

na-na-na-na

I’ll be the girl with the heart tainted yellow
Braving it under my safest umbrella
Stuffing my pig full of pennies in vain
Saving my soul up and waiting for rain
