Lyrics

Stupid

Stupid girl, get in the car
Just shut up, we don't have far
Stay down low
Maybe tomorrow you can go

Stupid girl, you don't need school
You talk too much, and they're not cool
Stay down low
Don't tell them what they want to know

Only one or two faces
That don't cringe or frown
Most people's eyes won't connect
She feels like she could drown
Her cracked boots lined with ziplock bags
Are piled up with the rest
Winter coat twice her size
With nothing to digest
Is this a test?

Stupid girl, you can't buy that
Don't touch nothin', you're nothin' but a brat
Don't make me blow
Don't make me lose control

Stupid girl, you're no good
I'd give you up if I could
I'd let you go
Just wait 'til we get home

Only one or two faces
That don't cringe or frown
Most people's eyes won't connect
She feels like she could drown
Her cracked boots lined with ziplock bags
Are piled up with the rest
Winter coat twice her size
With nothing to digest
Is this a test?
Is this a test? Is this a test?
Just do your best

When will this work end? When can I go home?
Some things never mend. Some are left with holes.

Stupid girl, get my gun
Start the car, we're gonna have some fun
Stay down low
Maybe tomorrow you can go
