He never minded
He never cared
He walks with his shirt off
He walks and we stare
(Don't) laugh
(Don't) mock
(Don't) snigger
(Don't) point
(Don't) He's happy to be alive
He's happy, thats the point.

(Well I think that)

They're all called Charlie,
Yeah probably not.
They're always sweating buckets
Skins beating red hot.
When it's like
You think you'll make it home ok
But step after step
Then your digging your grave!
The good (good)
Got it (got it)
Know what they mean (thats right)
Life's better for them
For them you see
They ignore what they hate
Keep what they like.
This time (this time)
I'm gonna do it right

See him in a store walking down the aisle
On his face a great big smile.
Be certain moving from side to side.
Celebrating living in his passion and his pride.
Out of control
Asleep at the wheel!
Dave's got a friend, and his name is Neil

He never minded
He never cared
He walks with his shirt off
He walks and we stare
(Don't) laugh
(Don't) mock
(Don't) snigger
(Don't) point
(Don't) He's happy to be alive
He's happy, thats the point.

(Manchester Singing Beach, 2 o'clock)

A beached whale
You try to flip over now
Can't move sand what
Starts to thrash around as the tide starts to move in.
God i hope Charlie swims
Now there bellies floting around
All the kids are jumping off him on the Beach theres a crowd.
He doesnt mind
In fact i think i see a smile
Fatman playing all the while!

Thinking back to the time when he thought that no one cared.
Celebrating apathy controlled yet unaware.
Wondering if people thought that he was dumb and slow
(maybe I dunno but I don't think so)
Slip n slide in the yard so sad those days are gone.
Grass stains on his pants got yelled at by his mom.

Well find out (what)
Wonder why now (what)
He never had no self respect
Never had a single doubt
Never let your words cut through me (through me)
THROUGH ME!
Those words (that took his laughter)
Those words (that took his pride)
Those words (that left him helpless)
Oh no, you wonder why!

Well find out (what)
Wonder why now (what)
He never had no self respect
Never had a single doubt
Never let your words cut through me (through me)
THROUGH ME!
Those words (that took his laughter)
Those words (that took his pride)
Those words (that left you helpless)
Oh no, you wonder why!

He never minded (No)
He never cared (No)
He walks with his shirt off
He walks and we stare
(Don't) laugh
(Don't) mock
(Don't) snigger
(Don't) point
(Don't) He's happy to be alive
He's happy, thats the point.

    General Commentdamn theres a verse missing, a good one too. Something like "Thinking back to the time when he thought that noone cared, celebrating apathy controlled yet unaware, wondering if people thought that he was dumb and slow (maybe I dunno but I don't think so) slip n slide in the yard so sad those days are gone, grass stains on his pants got yelled at by his mom." I love this song, The opinion of people who judge you by your appearance aren't important anyway, and grasping this idea makes a lot easier to be happy.
