The Lyrics

Who do birds run away in fear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they're totally
Grossed by you

Why do stars fizzle out and die
Every time you go by?
Just like me, they're totally
Grossed by you

On the day that you were born the angels got together
And tried to figure out just what went wrong
But they really didn't know so they had to let it go
And that's the reason why I wrote this song

That is why everyone in town
Hides when you come around
Just like me, they're totally
Grossed by you

(Instrumental Break)

On the day that you were born the angels got together
And tried to figure out just what went wrong
But they really didn't know and so they had to let it go
And that's the reason why I wrote this song

That is why everyone in town
Torches and pitchforks chase you down
Just like me, they're totally
Grossed by you

La, la-la-la-la, grossed by you
(repeat and fade)

Too funny! I actually know somebody this song applies to.

The pacing is off, especially in the very last verse (the torches and pitchforks bit), but the song is hilarious so I had to give it a 5 on that. Fix up the pacing a bit and this would be even better.
