The Lightning Thief - Good Kid Lyrics

2017 Off-Broadway
The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson Musical - Good Kid Lyrics


"Good Kid" is a song performed by Chris McCarrell (Percy) from The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson Musical.

PERCY:
Six schools in six years
Been kicked out of every place

Everything I ever do is wrong
Never find where I belong
Everybody on my case

The same old story
The same old song:
"Don't act up, don't act out
Be strong"

I keep my head down
I keep my chin up
But it ends up all the same
With, "Pack your bags, Percy
You're always to blame."

I never try to do anything
I never mean to hurt anyone

I try, I try to be a good kid
A good kid
A good son

But no one ever will take my side
All I ever do is take the fall
I swear, I swear that I'm a good kid
Guess I'm good for nothing at all

Gabe was a world class jerk
Dad was never there
The only family that really mattered?
Well, she vanished into the air

And now I finally find a haven
Someplace safe, where I can stay
'Till it's

"Pack your bags, Percy
Now go, go away!"

I never try to do anything
I never mean to hurt anyone
I swear, I swear that I'm a good kid
Yeah, Percy, that's a good one

But no one ever will take my side
All I ever do is take the fall
I swear, I swear that I'm a good kid
Guess I'm good for nothing at

All the schools in six years
Every battle, everyday
No one ever tells me that they're proud
No one asks me
"Percy, how'd you like to come round and stay?"

All you get are bad grades
And a bum rap
And a bad rep
And a good smack
And no friends
And no hope
And no mom-
She's taken away

I swear I never stole anything
I never meant to hurt anyone
I swear, I swear that I'm a good kid
A good kid, who's had a bad run

And all I need is one last chance
To prove I'm good enough for someone
I'm good enough for someone

I'm good enough for someone

ENSEMBLE:
Six schools in six years
Six schools in six years

PERCY:
I'm good enough for someone   

ENSEMBLE:
Six schools in six years
