I woke up late today
Actually, I do that every day
Got no place to be seen
I'm not part of a scene
I'm a genius loser
Keeping counsel with my own opinion
President of the state that I'm in
Should I just stay in bed?
Should I live in my head?
Oh god, so many questions to ask

Oh you could call it lazy
I think of it as taking my time
'Cause I don't want to do what I don't want to do
I'm a queen refuse-nik

But oh my God, if I was somebody
I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God, if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my ass right now
But I'm so polite
I do this all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Oh well

Day by day I wonder
If I will be torn asunder
By these things that I know that nobody else knows
Or maybe it's the drinking
Kids, we should consult a Bible
Everybody needs a sign, oh
Bless the birds and the bees
The flowers and trees
And blessed be the slacker

Oh my God, if I was somebody
I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God, if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my ass right now
But I'm so polite
I do this all of the time
I missed my calling in life

You must be having a laugh
Oh god, you're having a laugh
No point in worrying if my day's a disaster
Inside my little head, I'm happy ever after
Yes I am

Oh my God, if I was somebody
I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God, if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my ass right now
But I'm so polite
I missed my calling in life

Oh my God, if I was somebody
I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God, if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my ass right now
But I'm so polite
I do this all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Oh, what am I like?
Yeah, well.
