  • Just because it's not accepted
    Doesn't mean it ain't alright
    Just another frozen kid who's
    Tryin' to make it through tonight

    Ordinary pens and notebooks
    Ain't no ordinary life
    All the freaked out measures
    I took tryin' to make you sick of smilin'

    Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how
    Look what's ordinary now
    It's got a magic marker stain
    On its face and it needs a shower

    There's something sweet waiting in the center
    Taste and see
    There's something sweet waiting in the center
    Don't nobody look at me
    Don't nobody look at me


    Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how
    Look at ordinary now
    It's got a magic marker stain
    On its face and it needs a shower

    How many licks does it take to get
    Taste and see
    How many licks does it take to get
    To the center where there's something sweet
    To the center where there's something sweet

    Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how
    Look what's ordinary now
    Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how
    Look what's ordinary now
    Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how
    Look what's ordinary now
    Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how

    Look what's ordinary now
    Look what's ordinary now
    Look at ordinary now Writer/s: JAMES EDWARD OLLIGES JR
