There was a time in my life that I felt so all alone
That I never thought that someday I would have a happy home
A family and a four track radio shack microphone
A backyard and a hammock and a paid off student load
A backyard and a hammock and a paid off student load

So if you see me and I'm dreaming
About selling socks on ebay
Shake me hard till I'm awake
Stitches will unravel, the stitches will unravel
The stitches will unravel if you knit with fishing line
Though your cast will be refined
You'd be better off with twine

When I was a kid we would play Annie at recess
I was always Sandy because I was the smallest
From all that crawling on the blacktop
There were holes in all my jeans,
In the toes of my bowed shoes but I never complained
Because I didn't think that I could sing
See I never perfected that nasally thing
All the kids sang in the school play
Now I know it's better if we don't all sound the same
Now I know it's better if we don't all sound the same

So if you hear me and I'm screaming
About auditions for Annie
I hope you will try out with me
There are parts for everybody
And you don't need to be the dog unless you like being the doggy

He's up against a team that he has never seen before
And they march into the outfield like they're marching off to war
It's a good one out to right field but they're quick and make the play
And as the curtain closes he just bows and walks away
Singing, "If you're breathing you are living
If you're living you are learning
So write and write and keep on writing
Just make sure your life's exciting"

So if you see me and I've joined the roller derby
Know that I've become something I always wanted to be
Fast and strong and part of a team

Teacher, thanks for everything
You said "If you're breathing you are living
If you're living you are learning
So write and write and keep on writing
Just make sure your life's exciting
Write and write and keep on writing
Just make sure your life's exciting
Write and write and keep on writing
Just make sure your life's exciting
Just make sure your life's exciting
Just make sure your life's exciting
