-Anything said by Mr. T
- Ill be in my bunk
- Im so clever that half the time I don't even understand what I'm saying

I'm the other girl
the undesirable one
the one no one truly considers
for her worth
I'm the other girl
the one who isn't perfect
the one who talks to her cat at night
instead of you
I'm the other girl
the one who french braids the grass in the yard
and writes your name in the sand
before the waves whisk it away
I'm the other girl
the one you will forget
