MAD Original
Do you ever feel like you're not really real?

Just a puppet doll dealt a lousy deal

Do you ever think that you are just a prop,

an animated thing made from paper stock?

Do you ever think that they get all the praise

When it's you they like, it's you with all your funny ways?

I got news for you, no need for feeling blue,

'Cause there's a glow in you...

You just got to release the heat and really mean

To spark the light, free color so bright:

But be careful 'cause you're flammable,

You are made from paper, clay, and wool

You will easily ignite, ite, ite,

Or you'll melt down, which ain't right, right, right

Burn, burn, burn,

Oh, when will I ever learn, learn, learn?

Starting fires is concern, cern, cern,

'Cause then things start to turn, turn, turn.

That's what happens when you're flammable,

Listen to the fire marshall

Keep your dreams in check, check, check

Or you'll leave the place a wreck, wreck, wreck

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag

Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin

Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep six feet under?

Screams but no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that there's still a chance for you

'Cause there's a spark in you?

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine

Just own the night like the 4th of July

'Cause, baby, you're a firework

Come on, show 'em what you're worth

Make 'em go, "Aah, aah, aah"

As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Boom, boom, boom

Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

It's always been inside of you, you, you

And now it's time to let it through-ough-ough

Baby, you're a firework

Come on, let your colours burst

Make 'em go, "Aah, aah, aah"

You're gonna leave 'em all in awe, awe, awe
