#Fuck7thGrade


Freud stressed that the first five years of life are crucial to the formation of adult personality. He had it wrong. It's 7th grade -the shittiest of all years.

I'm working on a one-woman-show about the worst year of my life. "#Fuck7thGrade" is the, for now, working title. I've got until June to come up with the structure and songs. That's not a lot of time, especially since I will inevitably procrastinate...a lot. I started to panic today, then realized that I already have so many songs already that I could include. My whole catalog has been influenced and damaged by 7th grade.

So here is a few back catalog songs, as well as a couple of unreleased or rarities.


1. UNDERDOG VICTORIOUS: He's the bullied little queer boy who will eventually grow up to be a Glam Rock Star!

UNDERDOG VICTORIOUS

Bobby Trucks was a fat little boy living in a shitty little town

And every recess the dodge ball flew it knocked poor Bobby down

Four o’clock when he got home upstairs in his room

He'd close the door tie on his cape

Put on his skin-tight suit

And he'd sing

Underdog victorious

He was simply glorious

Someday he'd die notorious

Underdog victorious

A couple years later tried out for the band.Did covers of Matchbox 20

But he was dreaming of the New York Doll and Max's Kansas City

Of course they never called him back, they thought he was too queer

But he didn't care, back in his room, he’d sang into the mirror

And he sang

Underdog victorious

He was simply glorious

Someday he'd die notorious

Underdog victorious

He could see into the future. That was one of his great gifts

And one day all those dodge ball bullies

Would dream of his sweet kiss

And they'd dream

Underdog victorious

He was simply glorious

Someday he'd die notorious

Underdog victorious

2. Margaret - from my 1995 record. Margaret was the girl who bullied me. She was the goody two-shoes who, yes, ended up in the adult film industry. I kind of make fun of her for it in the song. But now after knowing and having friends who have been in "the industry" (as well as all the Stormy Daniels to do ), I'm so not looking down at all on Margaret's career path. She still should have been nicer to me.
