Ballad of a Beta Queen

Dream on, Dream on, Beta Queen
Weirdist girl we've ever seen

There's a story in our town
Of the weirdest girl around
Brunette hair, and a meter true
Which she'd use, to pitch at you.

People 'round her, liked her more
When she stayed out of the candy store
She'd get high, and cranky too
Getting high will make you blue.

She had glucose tabs to share
Pump so blue, an endo too
Not a care, this Beta Queen
(Not a care, this Beta Queen)

Dream on,Dream on, Beta Queen
Weirdest girl you've ever seen.

Though some guys would take her out
It was clear, they had their doubts
Diabetes was too real
They'd be getting too raw a deal.

Dream on, Dream on, Beta Queen
Better make some more ka-ching.

Then one day, she wrote a book
Publisher came, to take a look
Got the money, got the fame
Yet her life was still the same.

Dream on, Dream on, Beta Queen
Nothing's ever as it seems.

But the years, when passing by
Left this Beta Queen less shy
Diabetes lessons learned
Fewer times she would get burned.

Dream on, Dream on, Beta Queen
Maybe yet you'll get a ring.

Do I have to tell you more
She said yes to the boy from the shore..
And it's plain, they both adore.

















I've joined the ranks of engaged OC'rs... Yes, the weekend was all so
amazing + I'll be blogging about that but I had to tell you guys the most important news first!!!!!!!! It happened in a resteraunt in Williamsburg,(Sat.night) and I've still not come back to earth.
