Sk8er Boi

Avril Lavigne

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
But all of her friends stuck up their nose
They had a problem with his baggy clothes

He was a skater boy, she said: See you 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 rocking up MTV

She calls up 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 you later, boy
He wasn't good enough for her
Now he's a superstar slamming on his guitar
Does your pretty face see what he's worth?

He was a skater boy, she said: See you later, boy
He wasn't good enough for her
Now he's a superstar slamming on his guitar
Does 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
I 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 you later, boy
I'll be backstage after the show
I'll be at our studio singing the song we wrote
About a girl you used to know

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