What’s the frown on your face for? And just what are the skates for now? Tell me which is your good side? Are you lonely at night? Do you miss all the glory And the mythical story Of the Olympian life? Yamaguchi in red She had high rise and roses And red-carpet poses And her outfit was splendid Nancy Kerrigan’s charm Well she took quite a beating So you’re not above cheating Can you blame her for crying? Tonya, you were the brightest Yeah you rose from the ashes And survived all the crashes Wiping the blood from your white tights Has the world had its fun? Yeah they’ll make such a hassle And they’ll build you a castle Then destroy it when they’re done Tonya Harding, my friend Well this world is a bitch, girl Don’t end up in a ditch, girl I’ll be watching you close to the end So fight on as you are My American princess May God bless you with incense You’re my shining American star
