Pulling on the apron strings looking up

Standing on the chair to be grown up

I feel so little, I need my pillow

I hate the time, I hate the clock

I want to be a dog or I want to be a rock

Sunday's pancakes Miss Mary Mack

Color Polariods show my heart attack

 

In my second-hand pants and dusty shoes

The day that the playground laughed at my shoes

 

It's my birthday next week and what I want please

 

Is to turn on the heat so the fish won't freeze

 

The fish in the tank froze and died last week

 

Oh I want to be a dog or I want to be a leaf

 

Quarry miners, fishermen

 

In my town of Bethlehem

 

Picket fences, church at ten

No star above my Bethlehem

 

Now I'm only 16 and I think I have an ulcer

 

I'm hiding my sex behind a dirty sweatshirt

 

I've lost five pounds these past few days

 

Trying to be class president and get straight A's, well,

Who gives a shit about that anyway?

 

I want to be a dog or a lump of clay

 

Chorus

Still I'm tired of standing still

Tired of living - still

 

Everyday I dream of leaving

 

Everybody's talking about Becky's bust

 

The boys on the basketball team just fuck

The same ten girls, who don't know who they are

They're looking for some comfort in the back of a car

The six-packs of beer, the locker room jeers

 

I don't want to be me, I don't want to be here

Chorus

Red brick schoolhouse, dead end dirt roads, daffodils

No star above my Bethlehem

I want to be a dog or I want to be a rock

 

I don't want to be me, I don't want to be here
