She was so pretty, everyone said
The more so the pity, that she was found dead
Now the flag only flies at 50 percent
In the schoolyard she once went

Push em back, Push em back, way back, way back
B-E A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E

And the death of a cheerleader
Takes me by surprise
How the death of a cheerleader
Can open eyes

Yellow carnations and roses galore
Were sent to the mother and placed by the door
In the spot where her daughter had taken her life
Was a sweet sixteen photo on homecoming night.

Push em back, Push em back, way back, way back
B-E A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E

And the death of a cheerleader
Takes me by surprise
How the death of a cheerleader
Can open eyes

And its sad that she had to die
To open eyes

Nobody doubted her future was vast
Nobody noticed she grew up so fast
Its a shame that her future's a thing of the past
Tomorrow's the funeral, you know
L-E-T-S G-O
