Superstar Wonderful Weirdos

Album: Jagged Little Pill: Collector's Edition (2015)
  • Well, Sarah's only ten
    But she's attracted to older men
    And they seem to like her back 'cause she's intelligent
    And Billy's a football star
    And he drives around in his muscle car
    But he really, really wants to be a ballerina

    And he wonders, who am I?
    Who am I?
    And he wants to be a man
    But he doesn't understand
    It's alright to be what he wants

    I'm calling all superstar wonderful weirdos
    Can you hear me call tonight?
    I know you're alone in your world, full of fear though
    But the more you run, the harder it is to hide
    Oh, yeah, yeah

    Well, Johnny studies rockets
    With his plastic protected pockets
    So his pens don't leak out upon the floor
    Where Jenny's rolling
    And she's scared of growing
    'Cause she feels five feet taller than the girl next door

    And she wonders, who am I?
    What the hell am I?
    And she's got a lot to offer
    But she doesn't look like Cindy Crawford
    And it makes her cry

    I'm calling all superstar wonderful weirdos
    Can you hear me call tonight?
    I know you're alone in your world, full of fear though
    But the more you run, the harder it is to hide

    It's a total rejection of the system
    It's the honest opinion for the very first time
    It's a different perception of living
    And it's time that we opened our minds

    I'm calling all superstar wonderful weirdos
    You're not alone tonight
    No, you're not alone in your world, full of fear though
    But the more you run, the harder it is to hide

    Can you hear me? Writer/s: Glen Ballard, Alanis Morissette, Terrance Lee Sawchuk
