You were tryin' to be cute
And it didn't work out
You were tryin' to be charmin'
And it didn't come off

You were tryin' to be clever
A big waste of time
You were tryin' to get rough
But you're waitin' in line

You can't make it with the down boys
They don't hear a word you say
You can't make it with the down boys
Just stay out of their way

You were tryin' to be sharp
But they couldn't wait
You were tryin' to be eternal
But that didn't rate

You were tryin' to be smooth
You're rough on the edges
You were tryin' to be hysterical
And I still ain't laughin'

You can't make it with the down boys
They don't hear a word you say
You can't make it with the down boys
Just stay out of their way

You were tryin' to be in
But they left you out
You were tryin' to be in
Two different worlds

You were tryin' to be in
Oscillation in shame
You were tryin' to be in
But you're lost in the game

You can't make it with the down boys
They don't hear a word you say
You can't make it with the down boys
Just stay out of their way

Stay out of their way
Out of their way

You can't make it with the down boys
They don't hear a word you say
You can't make it with the down boys
Just stay out of their way
