"The Fat Girl" as written by and Lyle Pearce Lovett....
The fat girl
She always stayed inside and played piano
And she told her mother
The children made her cry
And her mother told her
They don't mean it
They don't mean it
They don't mean it
They don't mean it

Now the fat girl
She ain't fat no more
And lord how she plays piano
And she sings loud
And she sings low
And she sings of love
And blind passion
But she don't mean it
She don't mean it
She don't mean it
She don't mean it

    Lyric CorrectionIf you listen to the song closely enough, you will see that it's not "And blind passion", but "And blind compassion", which I think means a lot more in the song as well (I know that other sites have also misprinted the lyrics, so maybe this is a different version).

    My InterpretationAs a kid who was bullied (because of a disability) throughout elementary and middle school, this song means a lot to me. My parents and teachers told me meaningless things to either comfort me or make me shut up about it, including "they're just doing because they like you" and "they don't mean it". They sure as hell meant every single thing.

    Now I am an advocate for others with disabilities and am involved in anti-discrimination work, but I guess I don't mean it either. ;)
