DIFFERENT KIND OF COOL

intro
This song is for the misfits, about the cretins and the beatin's, the mismatched, the late-hatched, the ones that crawled, scraped, clawed and scratched,

It was a day like any other day, he was walking home from school,
When seven bullies got in his way, shoved him and called him a little spic-wop-jew boy fool.
He got home with a bloody nose, headed to his room,
Shut the door as he heard his momma call, "How'd your day go?",
But he doesn't let her know.
In that moment he swore to himself, never again would he try to follow the rules,
It was his first leap into the unknown of being a different kind of cool.

Chorus
A different code of honor that would change his whole life story,
A rocky path to freedom to unexpected glory.
He was that lonely guy standing in the corner of a crowded room,
But check him out now, he's a different kind of cool.

She was the little girl with pigtails and pimples, skinny legs and horn-rimmed glasses.

Cheerleaders made fun of her and picked on her in all of her classes.
Her step dad spent just a little too much time tucking her in at night.
She had bad dreams and nervous tics because her mom would do what was right.
No boyfriends, no good friends, nobody knew the truth,
Who'd a thought she'd turn out to be a different kind of cool?

Chorus
A different code of honor that would change herwhole life story,
A rocky path to freedom to unexpected glory.
She was that lonely girl standing in the corner of a crowded room,
But check her out now, she's a different kind of cool.

Final chorus
How many kids are under pressure, just waking up each day is rough?
If they survive the persecution, in the end it makes them tough.
That rock star, that CEO, that dot com king and dancer,
No telling how they got there, there is no easy answer,
One thing is for sure, sometimes life is cruel,
That didn't stop that boy or girl,
They turned out a different kind of cool.
