Let me hear you say hey hey hey!
Hey hey hey!
Alright, now let me hear you say hey hey ho!
Hey hey ho!

I hate it when a guy
Doesn't get the door,
Even though I told him
Yesterday and the day before...

I hate it when a guy
Doesn't get the tab
And I have to pull my money out
And that looks bad!

Where are the hopes?
Where are the dreams?
My Cinderella story scene.
When do you think
They'll finally see...

(Chorus)
That you're not, not, not,
Gonna get any better,
No, you won't, won't, won't,
You won't get rid of me never,
Like it or not even though she's a lot like me...
We're not the same,
And yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm a lot to handle,
If you don't know trouble,
I'm a hell of a scandal, me,
I'm a scene, I'm a drama queen,
I'm the best damn thing that your eyes have ever seen!

All right, All right, yeah...
I hate it when a guy
Doesn't understand
Why a certain time of month,
I don't want to hold his hand,
I hate it when they go out and we stay in,
And they come home smelling like their ex-girlfriend...

But I found my hopes,
I found my dreams.
My Cinderella story scene.
Now everybody's gonna see...

(Chorus)
That you're not, not, not,
Gonna get any better,
No, you won't, won't, won't,
You won't get rid of me never,
Like it or not even though she's a lot like me...
We're not the same,
And yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm a lot to handle,
If you don't know trouble,
I'm a hell of a scandal, me,
I'm a scene, I'm a drama queen,
I'm the best damn thing that your eyes have ever seen!

Give me an A! Always give me what I want!
Give me a V! Be very, very good to me!
R! Are you gonna treat me right?
I! I can put up a fight!
Give me an L! Let me hear you scream loud!
Let me hear you scream loud!

1... 2... 3... 4...
Where are the hopes?
Where are the dreams?
My Cinderella story scene.
When do you think they'll finally see...

(Chorus)
That you're not, not, not,
Gonna get any better,
No, you won't, won't, won't,
You won't get rid of me never,
Like it or not even though she's a lot like me...
We're not the same,
And yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm a lot to handle,
If you don't know trouble,
I'm a hell of a scandal, me,
I'm a scene, I'm a drama queen,
I'm the best damn thing that your eyes have ever seen!

Let me hear you say hey hey hey!
Hey hey hey!
Alright, now let me hear you say hey hey ho!
Hey hey ho!
Hey hey hey! Hey hey hey!
Hey hey hey!
I'm the best damn thing that your eyes have ever seen!

    The song could probably be about Avril and her boyfriend or a good guy friend who broke up and and the guy got together with another girl.So Avrils signing about it that he won't another girl as good as her although they might be alike in ways.They're not the same.Although i could be completly wrong :D

    Avril knows what she wants. Her boyfriend has a bunch of flaws and avril is gonna stay around until he starts smartinin' up!
