True story!


Roller derby girl, I saw you sing
I know you can, but you don't have to put it on the line
Roller derby girl, you skate so sweet, going round in circles, and faster
as your eyes look up at mine

You'll have everything you dream of
There'll never be anything you're in need of

You skate in a land where the trees grow strong
and your life goes on even when you think that maybe you can't make it
And the sun shines up from your eyes sometimes
when we're close together
and any time I reach out my hand, you take it

Roller derby girl, you've been through such an awful lot
but you don't have to account for what you're not
you're so many wonderful things
Roller derby girl, we're out here in the parking lot
so let's make out, and let's go home together

And the stars do shine from your eyes sometimes
when you're feeling fine
and I know you will again
If you float off course, it won't be too far
and you'll get to see all the friendly people who made you who you are

Roller derby girl, it's not like you've been bad enough to deserve all this but it's what you've got
It gets in your way, but you shrug it off
and I'll see you in the evening, and we'll get some drinks, or dinner
hey, I got a crush on you
