He was a boy, she was a girl
Can I make it any more obvious?
He was a punk and she did ballet
What more can I say?

He wanted her, she'd never tell
Secretly she wanted him as well
But all of her friends stuck up their nose
They had a problem with his baggy clothes

He was a sk8er boi, she said, "See you later, boy"
He wasn't good enough for her
She had a pretty face but her head was up in space
She needed to come back down to Earth

Five years from now, she sits at home
Feeding the baby, she's all alone
She turns on TV, guess who she sees
Sk8er boi rockin' up MTV

She calls up her friends, they already know
And they've got the tickets to see his show
She tags along and stands in the crowd
Looks up at the man that she turned down

He was a sk8er boi, she said, "See you later, boy"
He wasn't good enough for her
Now he's a super star, slammin' on his guitar
Does your pretty face see what he's worth?

He was a sk8er boi, she said, "See you later, boy"
He wasn't good enough for her
Now he's a super star, slammin' on his guitar
Does your pretty face see what he's worth?

Sorry, girl but you missed out
Well, tough luck that boy's mine, now
We are more than just good friends
This is how the story ends
Too bad that you couldn't see
See the man that boy could be
There is more that meets the eye
I see the soul that is inside

He's just a boy and I'm just a girl
Can I make it anymore obvious?
We are in love, haven't you heard?
How we rock each other's world

I'm with the sk8er boi, I said, "See you later, boy
I'll be back stage after the show
I'll be at a studio singing that song we wrote
About a girl you used to know"

I'm with the sk8er boi, I said, "See you later, boy
I'll be back stage after the show
I'll be at a studio singing that song we wrote
About a girl you used to know"
