  • Yeah, this song is dedicated (this is Good Charlotte)
    To every kid who ever got picked last in gym class (you know what I'm saying)
    This is for you
    To every kid who never had a date to no school dance
    This is for you
    To everyone who's ever been called a freak (y'all know what I'm saying)
    This is for you (what?)
    Here we (G.C.), here we go

    Yeah, uh, what, come on
    (Y'all know what I'm talking about, y'all know know what I'm saying
    Yeah, what?
    Come on, come on, come on
    Here we go

    Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh (come on)
    Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh (let's do this)
    Here we go

    Like the time in school when we got free lunch
    And the cool kids beat us up (reduced lunch)
    And the rich kids had convertibles
    And we had to ride the bus (fifty-five)
    Like the time we made the baseball team
    But they still laughed at us (you still suck)
    Like the time that girl broke up with me 'cause I wasn't cool enough
    Trick

    Things, things, here we go (let's go)
    The little things, little things, they always hang around
    The little things, little things, they try to break me down
    The little things, little things, they just won't go away
    The little things, little things, made me who I am today, yo
    You want to hate me know
    But I won't stop now, 'cause I can't stop now

    Yeah, what? Come on, what?
    Yeah, what? Come on, come on
    Here we go

    Like the time mom went to that institute
    'Cause she was breaking down (I just can't take it)
    Like the car we had that wouldn't start
    We had to walk to get around (uh, can I get a ride?)
    And that same year on Christmas Eve
    Dad went to the store (uh, I'll see you guys later)
    We checked his room, his things were gone
    We didn't see him no more
    Dick

    Things, things, here we go
    The little things, little things, they always hang around
    The little things, little things, they try to break me down
    The little things, little things, they just won't go away
    The little things, little things, made me who I am today, go
    You want to hate me know
    But I won't stop now, 'cause I can't stop now

    What? What? What?
    Here we go, here we go

    The little things, little things, little things, little things
    Little things, little things, little things, little things
    Little things, little things, little things, little things (oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
    Little things, little things, little things (oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)

    Here we go
    Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
    Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

    And it always seems those little things (oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
    They take the biggest part of me
    Break down (oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
    I'm breaking down
    I'm breaking down Writer/s: Benji Madden, Joel Madden
