lyrics

(Schwartz)

I know a girl who is pretty and smart
But she doesn't do well with even light criticism
And when you present her with a brand new problem
Then her first reaction is to stand on her head

Oh, what to do?
This girl can't think of something new

And I know a boy who's creative and different
But he is so sensitive and he just can't stay focused
I think he has problems at home with his family
But he will not talk – no, he just rides his bike

Oh, what to do?
These people I know, they can't improve
And oh, what to say?
When they talk to you in their unreasonable way
Do you agree
Or shut them up, oh so factually?

And I know a man who is simple and pure
But he just doesn't have something to call his own
I tell my friend Roger, “now you should not bother
By simply responding with a damaging word.”

Oh, what to do?
These people I know, they can't improve
And oh, what to say?
When they talk to you in their unreasonable way
Do you agree
Or shut them up, oh so factually?
I don't want to be mean
But I don't think they are what we need
