That's not my name!
Doesn't anybody ever get it right?
Why don't they remember I am Carrie White?
Is that any harder to say than
That damn toad and spastic and weirdo and dumb bitch
Doesn't anybody think that I can hear?
'Specially when I got 'em screaming in my ear
Every day they mock me and push me around
'Til I drop
If I had a wish, God, I wish they'd stop
Sometimes their hatred is out of control
God how they hurt me
Mama says suffering is good for the soul
But they hurt me
And if I could
I'd bring them all
Down to their knees
I'd make them sorry forever for teasing Carrie
I will not cry
I try so hard to play their way
Why do they find it so hard to say
Why do they always treat me so bad?
They all know my name
I don't know why they all got so mad
It's always the same
What's going on deep in me?
All of these feelings suddenly
If I am changing, will I still be
Or what if I am somebody new?
Imagine, the things I might do
I might take a chance
I've always wondered how
Maybe I'll dance
And try hard to laugh more than I do now
Finally, I'd hear that word
Sounding so sweet
Thousands of voices forever repeating
"Carrie, Carrie, Carrie"
I am the sound of distant thunder
That color of flame
I am a song of endless wonder
That no one will claim
But someday, oh my, someday
Someone will know my name
