Avril Lavigne – Sk8ter boy


2x riff


He was a boy, she was a girl

can I make it anymore obvious?

He was a punk, she did ballet

what more can I say?

He wanted her, she'd never tell

secretly she wanted him as well

All of her friends stuck up their nose

and they had a problem with his baggy clothes


He was a sk8ter boy, she said see ya later boy he wasn't good enough for her,

she had a pretty face but her head was up in space, she needed to come back down to earth.


Five years from now she sits at home

feeding the baby she's all alone,

she turns on t.v., guess who she sees

sk8ter boy rockin' up MTV

she calls up her friends they already know

and they've all got tickets to see his show

she tags along and stands in the crowd and looks up at the man that she turned down


He was sk8ter boy, she said see ya later boy he wasn't good enough for her,

now he's a superstar slammin' on his guitar does your pretty face see what he's worth

He was sk8ter boy, she said see ya later boy he wasn't good enough for her,

now he's a superstar slammin' on his guitar does your pretty face see what he's worth


Guitar 2x


Sorry girl but you missed out

well tough luck that boys mine now

we are more than just good friends

this is how this story ends

to bad that you couldn’t see

see the man that boy could be

there is more than meets the eye

I see the soul that is inside


He's just a boy, and I'm just a girl can I make it anymore obvious?

We are in love haven't you heard? How we rock each others world.


I'm with the sk8ter boy, I said see you later boy I'll be backstage after the show,

I'll be at the studio singin' the song he wrote about a girl he used to know
