LyricsEdit

I'm so excited, cause I'm going to the high school of Performing Arts. I mean, I was dying to become a serious actress. Anyway, it's the first day of acting class and the teacher, Mr. Karp puts us on stage one in back of the other and says, Okay, class, today we're going to do improvisations. You're on a bobsled, and it's snowing out, and it's cold. Okay, go!
Every day for a week
We would try to feel the motion, feel the motion
Down the hill
Every day for a week
We would try to hear the wind rush, hear the wind rush
Feel the chill
And I dug right down to the bottom of my soul
To see what I had inside
Yes, I dug right down to the bottom of my soul
And I tried, I tried
And everybody's going 'Whoosh, whoosh. I feel the air! I feel the cold! I feel the snow!' And Mr. Karp turns to me and says 'Okay, Morales, what do you feel?'
And I said nothing; I'm feeling nothing
And Karp said nothing could get a girl transferred
They all felt something, but I felt nothing
Except the feeling that this bullshit was absurd.
But I said to myself, don't worry about it. Maybe it's genetic; they don't have bobsleds in San Juan!
Second week, more advanced and we had to
Be a table, be a sports car
Ice cream cone
Mr. Karp, he would say very good,
Except Morales, try Morales
All alone
And I dug right down to the bottom of my soul
To see how an ice cream felt.
Yes, I dug right down to the bottom of my soul
And I tried to melt
And the kids yelled nothing, they called me nothing
And Karp allowed it, which really makes me burn
They were so helpful, they called me hopeless
Until I really didn't know where else to turn
And Mr. Karp comes up to me and says, 'Morales, I think you should transfer to Girls' High -- You'll never be an actress. Never.' Jesus Christ!
Went to church praying, Santa Maria
Send me guidance, send me guidance,
On my knees
Went to church praying, Santa Maria
Help me feel it, help me feel it
Pretty please
And a voice from down at the bottom of my soul
Came up to the top of my head
Yes, a voice from down at the bottom of my soul
Here is what it said:
This man is nothing! This course is nothing!
If you want something go find another class!
And when you find one you'll be an actress.
And I assure that's what finally came to pass
Six months later I heard that Karp had died
So I dug right down to the bottom of my soul
And cried
'Cause I felt nothing.
