The Lyrics

Due to requests made to shorten my name, I have changed it from "Stupid Un-funny idiot who thinks she is funny" to the extremely lame and probably taken 'Bitterheart' Oh man, I cringed when my other cruddy "parody" of this song was leaked onto the site... Seriously, I should stop staying up a 4am and drinking too much coke..
Tonight I am deadbeat
For I can't pay the fare
I feel like such a freak
Know I'll be slapped, told I stink and sent flying in the air
You must know
I'm only human
Just a girl in a public phonebooth
If you like I will list my excuses
You should consider, that some of them are true

Somebody lend me a quarter!
Can't you see I'm making a call
Me and my boyfriend, we got somethin' to settle
I don't want to, just stand here and stall
Somebody lend me a quarter!
Can't you just give me one small loan?
No credit on my cell, communication hell
And tonight I've no money
My allowance has all just gone...

I'm an unlucky lass
Cause nothing here is free
Well this really does suck ***
Dang I feel like stealin' and breaking the rules
Oh I'd do anything, to give him a ring
I just need some currency, a round shiny silver thing
Tell why can't I have a little change
When I've spent all my money in a session at the mall?

Somebody lend me a quarter!
Can't you see I'm stranded on Main
Gotta call my baby, so he can drive me back home
I couldn't wait, I'm going insane!
Somebody lend me a quarter
Can't you see I am a bit short
Can't afford a bus, getting home's a fuss
I live in midwest nowhere
Look at all the stuff I just bought!

Oh no...

Oh yea...


Spent it... all...


Oh no...

Oh dang!

Somebody lend me a quarter!
Please let me get my message through
I need a lift home, don't wanna worry mother
Got some spare change, please tell me you do!
Somebody lend me a quarter!
I'm desperate and it's dark and it's cold
And before you say nope, my goldfish has a stroke
Sir I am being honest
Why don't you believe what you're told?!

No nooo!

Not at all!

My cat's given birth,
My dad is going blind
Worst of all this darn rich guy,
This rich guy won't share his dough...
