The Lyrics

this is a song about a kid being bullied and hes really sarcastic and takes it in a really good way i only wish i did it when i was young "Ghetto John"
1:you are here,
hear me yell ,
ill miss school,
ring the bell,
took my shoes,
and balloons,
on the fence,
wedgied in ,
i can tell that we are gonna be friends,
i can tell that we are gonna be friends,

2:big tommy ,
bullies me,
gives wedgies,
hang on the tree,
i will fall onto the ground,
look at all the bruises found,
safely walk to school with outa sound,
safely walk to school with outa sound,

3:here i am no one else,
i'll walk to school all by myself,,
theres dirt on my uniform,
when forced to eat those ants and worms,,
i clean up and now its time to learn,,
i clean up and now its time to learn,

4:numbers letters learn to spell,,
hit by books at show and tell,
play time you will throw the ball,
kick my butt there in the hall,
you bang my head right against the wall,
you bang my head right against the wall,

5:you dont notice any time pass,
you dont notice any thing,
you kick my but in every class,
teacher thinks that you sound funny,
but she likes the way i sing,

6:tonight ill dream while im in bed,
kids advil kills the pain in my head,
all the bugs that i digest,
when i wake tommorow i will bet,
that you will kick my but again,
i can tell that we are gonna be friends,
yes i can tell that we are gonna be friends,

I thought it was funny, pacing's off a bit though. Sorry if I'm kinda critical of that, The White Stripes are my all-time favourite band EVER EVER EVER. I played the song and sang these words and it fit pretty well. 4,5,5.

I tried it out with the song and it worked ok, but sometimes it's off pace and the words dont' fit perfectly, but over all its funny. White Stripes rock.. my favorite band x3

This is an awesome song. I could pretty well follow through the whole tune, the last verse however, needs some clean up as far as flow goes. Again, loved the song, 4,4,5

I think it's funny, (and its good and that) but where are the real lyrics? I heard this song on NAPOLEON DYNAMITE. It's awesome that movie.

The original song is called "We're Going to Be Friends", by the White Stripes. It appeared on the album "White Blood Cells".
