[Brian]
What do you do with a B.A. in English?
What is my life going to be?
4 years of college,
And plenty of knowledge,
Have earned me this useless degree!
I can't pay the bills yet,
'Cause I have no skills yet,
The world is a big scary place!
But somehow I can't shake,
The feeling I might make,
A difference to the human race!

[Kate]
Morning Brian!

[Brian]
Hi, Kate Monster

[Kate]
How's life?

[Brian]
Disappointing

[Kate]
What's the matter?

[Brian]
The catering company laid me off

[Kate]
Oh, I'm sorry

[Brian]
Me too! I mean, look at me!
I'm 10 years out of college,
And I always thought...
[Kate]
What?

[Brian]
No it sounds stupid.

[Kate]
Oh c'mon!

[Brian]
When I was little,
I thought I would be,
A big comedian on late-night TV!
But now I'm 32 and as u can see,
I'm not, oh well,
It sucks to be me!
It sucks to be me!
It sucks to be broke, and unemployed, and turning 33!
It sucks to be me!

[Kate]
You think your life sucks?

[Brian]
I think so

[Kate]
Your problems aren't so bad
I'm kinda pretty
And pretty damn smart.

[Brian]
You are
[Kate]
Thanks
I like romantic things like music and art.
And as you know I have a gigantic heart,
So why don't I have a boyfriend?
FUCK!
It sucks to be me!

[Brian]
Me too!

[Kate]
It sucks to be me!

[Brian]
It sucks to be me!
It sucks to be Brian

[Kate]

[Brian]
To not have a job

[Kate]
To not have a date

[Both]
It sucks to be me!

[Rod/Nicky arguing]

[Brian]
Hey Rod, Nicky, can you settle something for us if you have a second?

[Rod]
Oh, certainly

[Kate]
Whose life sucks more, Brian's or mine?

[Rod and Nicky]
OURS!

[Rod]
We live together

[Nicky]
We're close as people can get

[Rod]
We've been the best of buddies

[Brian]
Ever since the day we met

[Rod]
So he knows lots of ways to make me really upset!! Oh!
Every day is an aggravation

[Nicky]
C'mon that's an exaggeration

[Rod]
You leave your clothes out,
You put your feet on my chair

[Nicky]
Oh yea? You do such anal things like ironing your underwear!

[Rod]
You make that very small apartment we share, a hell!

[Brian]
So do you, that's why I'm in hell too!

[Rod]
It sucks to be me!

[Christmas Eve]
Why u all so happy?

[Brian]
'Cause our lives suck!

[Christmas Eve]
Your lives suck?
I hearing u correctly? Ha!
I coming to this country, for opportunities,
Try to work in Korean deli,
But I a Japanese!
But with hard work I earned two master degrees!
In social work,
And now I a therapist!
But I have no clients!
And I have unemployed fianc,
And we have lots of bills to pay!
It sucks to be me!
It sucks to be me!
I say it sucka, sucka, sucka, sucka,
Sucka, sucka, sucka, sucka, sucka,
Sucka, sucka, sucka, suck!
It sucks to be me!

[Princeton]
Uh excuse me,
Sorry to bother u, but I'm looking for a place to live

[Christmas Eve]
Why u looking out here?

[Princeton]
Well, I started in Avenue A,
But so far everything's out of my price range,
But this neighborhood looks a lot cheaper.
Oh and look a for rent sign!

[Brian]
You need to talk to the superintendent,
Let me get him.

[Princeton]
Great! Thanks!

[Brian]

[Gary Coleman]
I'm coming! I'm coming!

[Princeton]
Oh my God it's Gary Coleman!

[Gary Coleman]
Yes I am!
I'm Gary Coleman,
From TVs different strokes.
I made a lot of money,
That got stolen by my folks!
Now I'm broke, and I'm the butt of everyone's jokes!
But I'm here, the superintendent
On Avenue Q!
[All]
It sucks to be you!

[Kate]

Whatch-you talkin' 'bout Willis?
It gets old.
