This is the first full song that I've really ever written and I'm pretty pleased with it.

Lyrics:
You sit on that step with the sun in your hair
Guitar case by your side
You take out the strings and you start to play
You're taking it all in stride
You pick out a tune, it's the best one you know,
You sing it out loud and strong
Then someone gets up and they shut the door
They shut out your song

Well it turns out you're awful at singing in tune,
But they won't say that to your face
And your guitar playing skills, well, they're totally crap
You surely must know that's the case
I almost felt sorry, until I heard you myself
Now I know that I was wrong
I hate to be the one to ruin your day,
But you've sucked all along

I'm sorry to say that I can't disagree
Especially when they say they'd rather hear me
On that step with my guitar, it's true
They think that I'm way better than you

We'd sure like to know why it is you won't stop
Singing that same played out tune
I do understand it's the best one you've got
But really you ought to stop soon
And if that's your best, I'm afraid to find out
What it is makes the rest of them bad
And your arrogant statements and your stupid pants
Make the rest of us mad

I'm sorry to say that I can't disagree
Especially when they say they'd rather hear me
On that step with my guitar, it's true
They think that I'm way better than you

Why won't you admit it?
We all wish you'd quit it
Especially that part at the bridge where you sing really loud

I'm sorry to say that I can't disagree
Especially when they say they'd rather see me
On that stage with my back up band, it's true
They'll all stick around until after the show
To get autographs and take some photos with me
And not you
Because they think that I'm way better
Than you
