    Lyrics

    Don't you think that it's boring how people talk
    Making smart with their words again - well, I'm bored
    Because I'm doing this for the thrill of it, killing it
    Never not chasing a million things I want
    And I am only as young as the minute is full of it
    Getting pumped up on the little bright things I bought
    But I know they'll never own me (Yeah)

    [Chorus]
    Baby, be the class clown, I'll be the beauty queen in tears
    It's a new art form showing people how little we care (Yeah)
    We're so happy even when we're smiling out of fear
    Let's go down to the tennis court and talk it up like, yeah (Yeah)

    Pretty soon I'll be getting on my first plane
    I'll see the veins of my city like they do in space
    But my head's filling up fast with the wicked games, up in flames
    How can I fuck with the fun again when I'm known
    And my boys trip me up with their heads again, loving them
    Everything's cool when we're all in line for the throne
    But I know it's not forever (Yeah)

    [Chorus]
    Baby, be the class clown, I'll be the beauty queen in tears
    It's a new art form showing people how little we care (Yeah)
    We're so happy even when we're smiling out of fear
    Let's go down to the tennis court and talk it up like, yeah (Yeah)

    It looked alright in the pictures (Yeah)
    Getting caught's half of the trip though, isn't it (Yeah)
    I'll fall apart, with all my heart (Yeah)
    You could watch from your window (Yeah)
    You could watch from your window

    [Chorus]
    Baby, be the class clown, I'll be the beauty queen in tears
    It's a new art form showing people how little we care (Yeah)
    We're so happy even when we're smiling out of fear
    Let's go down to the tennis court and talk it up like, yeah (Yeah)
    And talk it up like, yeah (Yeah)
    And talk it up like, yeah (Yeah)
    Let's go down to the tennis court and talk it up like, yeah (Yeah)
    And talk it up like, yeah (Yeah)
    And talk it up like, yeah (Yeah)
    Let's go down to the tennis court and talk it up like, yeah (Yeah)
