Freddie Laid The Smackdown

lyrics

Moving towns
Eleven years old at another new school now

Oh no but I wasn't aware I'd be
Staring down the barrel of the proverbial gun
I'm eating school dinner when Matthew
Informs me we're fighting as soon as I'm done

I'm using lies to try and
Disguise I'm far less worldly-wise
And Aaron's been pushing me round since
I skilled him up bad at 11-a-side

Oh no Freddie laid the smackdown
oh no on the new kid in a new town
Oh no you can take your shots at me
But you'll never get a piece of my soul

On shaky ground
There's nothing left to do but
Learn to dust yourself down

In lessons Miss Beehag asks questions
I'm sure to be smiling and raising my hand
I'm pleased to be getting my A's but
Jordan's rubbing my face in the sand

If i wasn't so shy i might notice that
Some of the girls in my class think i'm cute
But it's tricky when chattin to Vicky
And the boys are trying to stick in the boot

Oh no Freddie laid the smackdown
oh no on the new kid in a new town
Oh no you can take your shots at me but
You'll never take a piece of my soul

Earn my scars
Heal my bones
Grow my legs
Grow some stones
Move on elsewhere
You took your shots at me
But you never took a piece of my

The school bell sounds
Nothing left to do but
Earn it on the playground

Oh no Freddie laid the smackdown
Oh no I'm the new kid it's a new town
Oh no well you can take your shots at me
But you'll never get a piece of my soul
