The Lyrics

Normal kids utterly hate Picture Day. I know I did!
Picture day I'm shunning
I'll shout till I'm red faced
Really hate the pressure
Of making these look great

I'm snarlin, My mouth's misshapen
My lips curl showing so much brace
The photographer's going nuts
Since I won't stay in one place

I hate ties they're tightened
Gasping like a flounder
You won't see me grin
When I'm stuffed into these trousers

Teeth barring like a pissed Dalmatian
Those girls are all poised with grace
But not me I'm a hyper punk
Who just downed a Coke case

You've got these pictures filed
Where they forced, forced me to smile
In some I'm cross-eyed
In others... Caked with pie...

Forced me to smile!!!
Forced me to smile!!!

These photos are stunning
Won't give mom a migraine
There's no stupid gesture
That's plastered across my face

I'm charming in this shirt of satin
Hair's not whirled and I'm not disgraced
Father's proud of his youngest son and
This one is showcased!

My whole family's beguiled
Though they forced, forced me to smile
It worked out this time
Next year I'm full of grime!

Forced me to smile!
Forced me to smile!

Nicely done, it brings back the old days where you had to get a new pic every year - not sure why. This follows the OS really well.
