Made Of Bricks

Mariella

on Made Of Bricks (2008)

I'm heavy handed to say the least
My mother thinks I'll be an awful clutcher
'Cause I spill things from stirring 'em too quickly

I'm far too loud
It's like as soon as I've got an opinion
It just has to come out
I laugh at stupid things just 'cause they tickle me

And sometimes
Sometimes I wish I was like Mariella
She got some Pritt stick
Aand glued her lips together

So, she never had to speak
Never had to speak, never had to speak
People used to say she's as quiet as a mouse
She just doesn't make a peep

She marched to her wardrobe
And she threw away the color
Because wearing black looks mysterious
But it didn't impress her mother

She wanted to dress her baby
In patterns and flowers
But Mariella just crossed her arms
And so she cried for hours

Mariella, Mariella, my pretty baby girl
Unglue your lips from being together
And, and wear some pink and pearls

You can have your friends 'round
And they can stay for tea
Won't you just try to fit in please?
Do this for me

But Mariella just crossed her arms
And she walked up the stairs
And she went into her bedroom
And she sat on her bed

And she looked in the mirror
And she thought to herself
"If I wanna play, I can play with me
If I wanna think, I'll think in my head"

At school
Mariella didn't have many friends, yeah
The girls, they all looked at her
And they thought she was quite strange

And the boys
They're not really into girls at that age
And the teachers, they thought
Mariella was just going through a phase

But Mariella just smiled
Aas she skipped down the road
Because she knew
All the secrets in her world

Yes, she always got
The crossword puzzles right every day
And she could do the alphabet backwards
Without making any mistakes

Mariella, Mariella, you pretty, pretty girl
Mariella, Mariella
Happy in her own little world
Happy in her own little world

And she said, "Yeah, I'm never ever, ever, ever, ever
Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever
Yeah, I'm never ever, ever, ever, ever
Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever
Yeah, I'm never ever, ever, ever, ever
Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever
Gonna unglue my lips from being together"

She said, "I'm never ever, ever, ever, ever
Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever
Yeah, I'm never ever, ever, ever, ever
Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever
Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever
Gonna unglue my lips from being together, haha haha"
