Chris: (spoken) You know what Norma calls her? Scary White. Do you love it?
All: (murmuring and repeating) Scary White
Carrie: (sung) That's not my name!
Doesn't anybody ever get it right?
Why don't they remember, I am Carrie White?
Is it any harder to say than goddamn toad and spastic and weirdo and dumb bitch?
Doesn't anybody think that I can hear?
Especially when I've got 'em screaming in my ear!
Everyday they mock me and push me around til I drop
If I had a wish, God, I'd wish they'd stop!
When will they?
I wish they'd?
When will they when will they when will they
Sometimes their hatred is out of control
God, how they hurt me!
Momma says suffering is good for the soul
But they hurt me!
And if I could, I'd bring them all down to their knees
I'd make them sorry forever for teasing Carrie
I will not cry
I am okay
I try so hard to play their way
Why do they find it
so hard to say
Why do they always treat me so bad?
They all know my name
I don't know why they all get so mad
Its always the same
What's going on deep in me?
All of these feelings, suddenly
If I am changing
Will I still be
Or what if I am somebody new?
The things I might do
I might take a chance
I've always wondered how
Maybe I'll dance
And try hard to laugh more than I do now
And the world will open its eyes
And for once the whole world will recognize
Then all those people who scream night and day
"God praying Carrie!"
They'd say they knew me and they might even say
I'd hear theirs calls, sounding so sweet!
Thousands of voices
I am a sound of distant thunder
The color of flame
I am a song of endless wonder
That no one will claim!
Oh my, someday!
Someone will know
