The Average Child

The Average Child by Mike Buscemi

I don't cause teachers trouble;
My grades have been okay.
I listen in my classes.
I'm in school every day.

My teachers think I’m average;
My parents think so too.
I wish I didn't know that, though;
There's lots I'd like to do.

I'd like to build a rocket;
I read a book on how.
Or start a stamp collection...
But no use trying now.

Cause, since I found I'm average,
I’m smart enough you see
To know there's nothing special
I should expect of me.

I'm part of that majority,
That hump part of the bell,
Who spends his life unnoticed
In an average kind of hell.
