Black mascara smudges your face
You sit in your grassy place
The grass is oh so greener on the other side
But then I wonder why?

Its never gonna be that way, cos you got a pretty face
Not gonna be one of those girls - don't wanna live in that world

Does popularity come with a make-up case?
Just think of all the time you waste
See the sporties get their prizes
As we hide in the faculties demises

Its never gonna be that way, cos you got a pretty face
Not gonna be one of those girls-don't wanna live in that world

Its never gonna be that way, cos you got a pretty face
Not gonna be one of those girls-don't wanna live in that world

    General CommentThis song speaks to me because it's about being yourself, and not being a total robotic soulless puppet like Britney Spears.

    General CommentWell, I ain't a girl but this song has to speak to me alot. Hell, I am alot like this song in a sense... People are so caught up with popularity that they can't even see the world for what it is...

    General CommentTHANKYOUWESEETHEREALWORLD. being YOURSELF is what we should all aim for. this song is deffinately saying that.
    the real popular people aren't "plastics" or "barbies", but he people that are who they really are: nice, friendly people who are known by everyone for beign NICE AND FRIENDLY.
    why does popular have to have that steriotypical thing how everyone's a bitch and the "losers" are the real people? i don't get it.

    My InterpretationIt's about how popularity and fitting in are a waste of time ("Does popularity come with a make-up case? Just think of all the time you waste").
