The Lyrics

A 'nothing-is-sacred' poke at 'successful' people who forget the other people that helped them get ahead, or:"Be nice to the people you meet going up in your career. They'll be the same people you meet on your way down."
What fun it must be there in the spotlight
The one that you paid for with my cash
I helped you out when you were struggling
For promises that were not worth trash

You got where you are today by scheming
To nickel and dime me to the dregs
Don't think I've let you off the hook yet
I've simply become too proud to beg

CHORUS: In my book you're nothing but a zero
Your cheap glory reeks within my nose
Someday life will deflate your ego
And then you'll be dirt beneath my toes

My help always seems to go unnoticed
That's why I have no applause for thee
'Cause you went your merry way forgetting (you forgot it)
You would be nothing without me

CHORUS: (REPEAT)

Did I ever tell you you're a zero
Like the fairy-tale emperor, you've got no clothes
And life, someday life will deflate your ego
And then you'll be dirt beneath my toes

Oh, the dirt beneath my toes
Oh, you, you, you, you,
The dirt beneath my toes

Fly, fly, you flew away so high
Forgot about and left me dry
Screw you, screw you
Away with you, the dirt beneath my toes
