To the Jerks Who Helped My Puberty Along
With glasses now I'm "four-eyes?" (Yes, I'm skinny. Yes, I'm plain.)
But it baffles me you noticed since you haven't got a brain.
My skin's so white! No kidding? Well, in the summer I'm bright red!
You too were born my color and you'll be it when you're dead.
I'm frigid and unloving ‘cause I won't go all the way?
Well, you don't even turn me on. I bet you turn girls gay.
I got "lucky" playing ping pong when I beat you? Is that right?
So strong I've grown, I bet today I'd beat you in a fist fight!
