The Lyrics

This is told from Helga's point of view.
Where's my snare?
I have no snare on my head bow
There you go
Yo yo

Have you ever been hated, or discriminated against? I have, I've been protested and demonstrated against
Treatment like ice for my wicked life, Arnold tries to be nice.
God, I'm so sick of these motherf------ twists in my life.
All this commotion, emotions run deep as the burg is exploding
Jealous Tempers from me because my folks favour Olga
not taking nothing from no one, give him hell long as I'm breathing
keep kicking his ass in the morning, and calling him names in the evening
Leaving with the taste of regret with lust in my heart,
see I can torture you, but I'll make sure I never tear us apart.
Look at me now, I betcha prolly sick of me now
aren't you Arnold? , I'll reluctantly make you look ridiculous now

(Chorus X 2)
I'm sorry Arnold,
I never meant to hurt you
I never meant to make you cry
But Tonight, I'm cleanin' out my closet.

One More Time,

I'm sorry Arnold,
I never meant to hurt you
I never meant to make you cry
But Tonight, I'm cleanin' out my closet.

I've got an Arnold tribute in my closet
and I don't know if no one knows it
so before they throw me inside my coffin and close it
I'ma expose it, I'll take you back to 1984,
before I ever had the urge to call my smarter sister a w----
I was a little girl maybe I was just a couple of years
My f----- father must've been on his phone, sacking peers
When Olga spilt, I wonder if she even kissed me goodbye,
no I don't, on second thought I just f------ wished she would die
I looked out once at Arnold, and in the split of a second I was in love
When I pretended I hated him, I grited my teeth and I try to make it work
with him, at least for my heart's sake I maybe made some mistakes
but I'm only human but I'm man enough to face them today
What I do to Him's stupid; no doubt it 's just dumb
but the smartest s--- I did was keep Arnold from findin' out my family's scum
wish I could kill em, s--- It's the only good ending I see for me and Arnold both
that's my life, I'd like to welcome ya'll to the Helga Pataki show

(Chorus X 2)

Now I would never diss my own parents just to get recognition
take a second to listen for who you think this record is dissing
but put yourself in my position, just try to envision
witnessing your father preachin' about business in the kitchen
Bitching that his wife's always going through her purse when shit's missing
Arnold's Grandma's no different; Bitch suffers from Alzheimer's syndrome
My whole life I was made to believe I was useless when I wasn't
till I caught on, now I grown up it makes you sick to your stomach, doesn't it?
wasn't it the reason you kept me thinkin' I was second-fiddler, "Ma"?
so you could try to groom me the way Olga was, "Ma?"
but guess what, you're getting older now and it's cold when you're lonely
And I've grown up so quick I already know that you're phoney
and my love for Arnold's strong now, when we wed, it'll be beautiful.
but you'll never see us, we wont even be at your funeral *hahaha*
See what hurts me the most, is you wont admit you was wrong
bitch, do your song; keep telling yourself that you was a mom,
and how dare you leave me to be lectured about the success that you get
You selfish bitch, I hope you f------ burn in hell for this s---
Remember when you moved to New York and wanted to take me too late bitch, I've shunned you, you're just plain dead to me!

(Chorus X 2)
