Ben Folds – Underground lyrics

I was never cool in school,
I'm sure you don't remember me,
And now it's been ten years, I'm still wondering who to be,
I love to mix in circles, cliques and social coteries,
That's me
Hand me my nose-ring
(can we be happy?)
Show me the mosh pit
(can we be happy?)
We can be happy, underground

Whos got the looks?
Whos got the brains?
Whos got everything?
I've got this pain in my heart
That's all
Hey you, with the long and lonely face
There's gotta be something else
Let me tell you something else
There was a girl that passed me by she gave a smile,
But I was shy I looked down, way down,
Don't look down, no, no
Go go underground
Now there's a place to go

Its the morning now, it's the evening now,
Its everything,
I click my heels and,
I'm there

Underground, underground, ooh
Everything's heavy underground
You been kicked around
Did life bring you down here?
Everything's heavy underground

We'll be all decked
In all black
Slamming the pit fantastic
Officer's friendly boy's got a mohawk
And he knows just where it's coming from
Its industrial
Work it underground
Get down, get down, get down
We can be happy
We can be happy
We can be happy
Oh we can
Oh we can
Oh we can be
Everything's heavy!
