On The Outside Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

They laugh at me out loud, they say I'm just a clown
That I ain't got no ride, I'm on the outside
The girls look really cute, they really make it work
They think I'm just a jerk, I'm on the outside

I never could just steal, I never was too hip
I never caught the ride, I'm on the outside
I'm on the outside, I'm on the outside now

This is where it all begins, right here
On the outside lookin' in, I'm on the outside

I never was a punk, I never shot junk
I never even tried counter culture passed me right by
(I'm on the outside)

Don't talk to debutants
Don't eat in restaurants
The patrons sit and stare
The winners make wise cracks behind my back
(I'm on the outside)

The teachers stare in school
They throw me by the rule
They said I had no motivation frame or dedication
I think those imbeciles were right
I'm on the outside, I'm on the outside
I'm on the outside now

And this is where it all begins on the outside lookin' in
Get in and you
I'm just an alien going through
Tryin' to make believe I'm you, trying to fit
Just a stranger on the outside lookin' in

This culture makes me sick, I wear the wrong clothes
I do the wrong things, you know I cant dance
My feet are much to wide
(I'm on the outside)
And then you set the trims
You wear your hair just right, your clothes are outta sight
Your house is modern really cute
You get so macho when your with your miss
(I'm on the outside)

I see them go to work, I see them go to school
I see the moms who do it, I see them laugh and cry
I'm on the outside, I'm on the outside
I'm on the outside

(I'm on the outside)
I'm on the outside
I'm on the outside
(I'm on the outside)
I'm on the outside
I'm on the outside
(I'm on the outside)
I'm on the outside
I'm on the outside
I'm on the outside now

This is where it all begins
I'm on the outside lookin' in
Get in and you
I'm just an alien going through
Trying to make believe I'm you, tryin' to fit
Just a stranger on the outside lookin' in

I'm on the outside
I'm on the outside now
I'm on the outside
I'm on the outside now
I'm on the outside
I'm on the outside now
