Lyrics - "Fourth Grade"

Fourth Grade

 

I met a girl today in fourth grade

It’s her first year with a locker

And a teacher with a first name

She’s smiling as she tells me

Weekend homework isn’t easy

But she can’t wait to be as old as me

 

And I’m nowhere near as pretty as I thought I would be

My car don’t sparkle and I’ve yet to find my dancing feet

But it’s a beautiful view that’s bigger than any plans I could have made

And my favorite days feel like fourth grade

 

Some people say back then didn’t matter

We were only little kids

And it could take years to learn what life and love and meaning really is

But you will know more, be more, feel more, see more

Than anyone will give you credit for

 

And when you say you’re nowhere near as pretty as you thought you would be

When your car don’t sparkle and you’ve yet to find your dancing feet

I hope it’s a beautiful view that’s bigger than any plans you could have made

I hope your favorite days feel like fourth grade

 

Oh I hope it’s a beautiful view

I hope your favorite days feel like

Feel like fourth grade
