lyrics

Look here at my youngest one
A little fat and a little dumb
She hates school and she hates her mom
And I know she ticks like a time bomb

I know what she wants to hear
That life gets better every year
But let me say this
And I'll be clear
Cuz this is gonna break your heart, darling

Nothing works out for us
And this life is such a tease

Hey!

I know that she's only 12
And she thinks that her life is hell
Let me say this, and listen well
It starts low and it all goes downhill

She'll say that it isn't fair
We want a life that's unique and rare
But no one loves you
And no one cares
And no one ever will, baby

Nothing works out for us
And this life is such a tease

Help my daughter
She's in love
You're the only one she trusts
She reads beauty magazines
She thinks she's an ugly one
God she's growing up so fast
She'll be dead before you know

La la la-la la la laaa
La la la-la la la laaa
La la la-la la la laaa
La la la-la la la la la

I know what she wants to hear
That life gets better every year
But let me say this
And I'll be clear
Cuz this is gonna break your heart, darling

Nothing works out for us
And this life is such a tease

Help my daughter
She's in love
You're the only one she trusts
She reads beauty magazines
She thinks she's an ugly one
God she's growing up so fast
She'll be dead before you know
