All the funny kids with their funny friends
telling funny jokes ya, they're comedians
and everyone loves the funny stories they tell
they make me laugh so hard but they give me hell

see all the pretty kids with the pretty eyes?
well they always getaway with telling pretty lies
they could tie you up, gag you and rob you blind
no one would care cause perfect faces are always on their minds

and all the steady kids with steady hands
can keep their calm in tight situations
romantics talk so smooth with a steady head
well i've got shaking hands regretting what i said

I envy the clever boys and clever girls
appraised for their clever views on the world
they write their clever thoughts for accolades
I wish I tried harder so I'd could have something smart to say

all the half knots are frayed
all the half knots are frayed
all the have-nots are frayed
all the half knots are frayed
