Verse 1 Lyrics:
"You're a little bit shy ,  A little too quiet 
You're the mixed up girl  That everybody leaves behind 

A little bit weird, A little too bright 
But you just might be That little bomb at their side 

They'll pull your hair, They'll leave you wide-eyed 
But did anybody wonder What Annie might have in mind?"
