"Becky" as written by and Jemima Pearl Abegg John Eatherly....
BFF and you're such a good friend
But I knew it couldn't last 'til summer's end
You signed my yearbook and that was pretty rad
And now I'm getting sick of you and it's just too bad

I heard you talked a lot of shit about me
To your new best friend

Doesn't matter anyway
'Cause I've found a brand new friend, okay
Me and her, we'll kick your ass
We'll wait with knives after class

But you know I gotta say
I really loved going to your slumber party
It's too bad you got so lame
You told my secrets and it caused me a lot of pain

I heard you talked a lot of shit about me
To your new best friend

Doesn't matter anyway
'Cause I've found a brand new friend, okay
Me and her, we'll kick your ass
We'll wait with knives after class

Now give me back all the clothes you borrowed
Don't give me bullshit, bring 'em to school tomorrow
I can't believe I told you all about my secret crush
I wish I could take it back now that you broke my trust

It was great how you made me a friendship bracelet
But I didn't know you made one for Becky's face lift
You now know everyone hates me a whole bunch
Just because I made you cry a little bit at lunch

But I don't feel bad
'Cause they don't know what we had

Doesn't matter anyway
'Cause I've found a brand new friend, okay
Me and her, we'll kick your ass
We'll wait with knives after class

We don't like Becky anymore
We don't like Becky anymore
We don't like Becky anymore
We don't like Becky anymore

Now I'm going to juvy for teenage homicide
It'll would've been cool if you stayed by my side
Then you'd know that you wouldn't have had to die
And now every single night I cry

If only what you wrote in my yearbook was true
Then I wouldn't be stuck in fucking cell block 2
But I don't regret what I've done
'Cause in the end it was fun

Doesn't matter anyway
'Cause I've found a brand new friend, okay
Me and her, we'll kick your ass
We'll wait with knives after class

Doesn't matter anyway
'Cause I've found a brand new friend, okay
Me and her, we'll kick your ass
We'll wait with knives after class

    General CommentTHis is one of the best songs on the album.

    beyond just being about a girl murdering her ex-best friend, i think it shows how pointless school violence is. which seems to be very popular in america

    General CommentThe lyrics posted are wrong at one point too..

    "Now I'm going to juvey for teenage homicide
    It'll would've been cool if you stayed by my side
    then you BECKY wouldn't have had to die,
    but now every single night I cry"

    I thought it was then YOU wouldn't have had to die, but I've been listening to this song on repeat for a week straight and have been trying to get every lyric perfect... the song is in fact about killing Becky, her old best friend's new friend. Which is so much better, I think.

    General Commentit's pretty obvious
    a girl has a best friend who stabs her in the back. the both get new best friends. the girl kills her ex best friend.

    General CommentI hear "I'll FIND a brand new friend" not I've got. And it sucks that the Americans didn't get this on their version as it's one of the best songs on the album in fact the 3 songs left off are my favourite songs on it. Universal realise Marylin Manson, eminem, 50 cent and Nine Inch Nails but this is too violent? What cocks!

    General Commentzombiesrafterme, they did not sell out, jemina said in an interview that universal just took the songs off without asking them - they could not do anyting about it.
    universal is being really blatantly sexist, like the above poster said eminem? marilyn manson? their lyrics are fine but if a girl is singing something that isn't even half as bad suddenly it's "too violent"?

    anyway, this is a really great song. one of my favorites off the new album.
