Sk8er Boi

This one is on the fun side - this song was huge when I was a kid - I remember hearing it for the first time on the way to a friend's party in the limo when I was 7 years old. I was listening to it on repeat today, just reminiscing. Sk8er Boi by Avril Lavigne, 2002.

He was a boy
She was a girl
Can I make it any more obvious? 
He was a punk 
She did ballet,
What more can I say? 
He wanted her,
She'd never tell.
Secretly she wanted him as well.
And all of her friends stuck up their nose
And they had a problem with his baggy clothes. 

He was a skater boy,
She said, "See ya later, boy" 
He wasn't good enough for her. 
She had a pretty face,
But her head was up in space. 
She needed to come back down to Earth. 

Five years from now,
She sits at home,
Feeding the baby,
She's all alone. 
She turns on TV,
Guess who she sees? 
Skater boy rockin' up MTV.
She calls all her friends,
They already know,
And they've all got tickets to see his show. 
She tags along, 
And stands in the crowd,
Looks up at the man that she turned down. 

He was a skater boy, 
She said, "See ya later, boy"
He wasn't good enough for her. 
Now he's a superstar,
Slamming on his guitar.
Did your pretty face see what he's worth? 

Sorry, girl, but you missed out.
Well, tough luck, that boy's mine now. 
We are more than just good friends,
This is how the story ends.

Too bad that you couldn't see,
See the man that boy could be.
There is more than meets the eye. 
I see the soul that is inside. 

He's just a boy,
And I'm just a girl,
Can I make it any more obvious? 
We are in love.
Haven't you heard how we rock each other's world? 

I'm with the skater boy,
I said, "See ya later, boy," 
I'll be backstage after the show. 
I'll be at the studio,
Singing the song we wrote
About a girl you used to know.
