  • If you go, they'll say you're following
    If you don't, then you're too good for them
    If you smile, you must be ignorant
    If you don't, what's your problem
    If you're down, so ungrateful
    And if you're happy, why so selfish?
    You can't win no, you can't win no

    [Chorus]
    The one who doesn't quite fit in
    Under dressed under your skin
    Oh a walking disaster
    Every time you try to fly you end up fallin'
    Out of line
    Oh you can't, you can't win no

    If you're thin, call it a walkin' disease
    If you're not, they're all screamin' obese
    If you're straight, why aren't you married yet?
    If you're gay, why aren't you waving a flag?
    If it's wrong, you'll never hit
    If it's right, you'll always miss
    You can't win, no you can't win no

    [Chorus]

    And you try you try so hard
    But I swear it on your heart
    And you play you play the game
    But you pay you pay for it
    You can't win no, you can't win no

    If you speak, you'll only piss them off
    If you don't, you're another robot
    If you stop, they'll just say you quit
    If you don't, you might lose your shh
    You can't win no, you can't win no
    You can't win no

    [Chorus]

    I can't win

    [Chorus] Writer/s: Felix Bloxsom, Josh Abraham, Kelly Clarkson, Oliver Elliot Goldstein
