The Bullied

Don’t laugh at me, don’t call me names, Don’t take your pleasure from my pain. I’m a little boy with glasses The one they call a geek, A little girl who never smiles ‘Cause I have braces on my teeth And I know how it feels to cry myself to sleep I’m that kid on every playground Who’s always chosen last A single teenage mother Tryin’ to overcome my past You don’t have to be my friend But is it too much to ask: Don’t laugh at me Don’t call me names Don’t get your pleasure from my pain… Don’t laugh at me I’m fat, I’m thin, I’m short, I’m tall I’m deaf, I’m blind, hey aren’t we all.
