Glee's Loser Like Me

The first time I heard the original Glee song - Loser Like Me, it struck a chord in my heart. I remember being branded as a loser by the mean girls in school. I was in kindergarten then. I vividly recall these two girls who wouldn't talk nor come near me because I was not pretty nor rich enough to get in their clique! Mind you, we were in kindergarten and "mean girls" already existed then.

They would poke fun of me all the time. I dreaded recess time because they would make nasty comments like "let's not talk to her because she's poor," "she has shabby clothes," "she's too small," etc., etc. That's the reason why I can relate so well with Glee. I was an outcast then.

Imagine how those remarks made me feel as a young five-year old girl. I would often come home crying and begged my mom not to take me to that school. I never told why but now I am telling because a loser like me can rise to the challenge. I may have not been the CEO of a company nor have my own firm. I may not hold a post in politics nor become somebody famous but I know who I am - I am a happy mom, wife, daughter, sister, cousin and a friend all rolled in one. I have a family who loves me. I have seen places other people have not even been to. I have bought a property out of my own hard-earned money. I help my family. I have graduated with honors. I have true friends who love me for who I am and accept me just the same. I have it all. I don't care where those two girls are now. They may be filthy rich by now, who cares! I don't. So, this song is for all those who bullied me before. Look at me now and drool!

Loser Like Me Lyrics
Glee original song

Yeah you may think that I'm a zero
But hey, everyone you wanna be
Probably started off like me
You may say that I'm a freak show (I don't care)
But hey, give it just a little time
I bet you're gonna change your mind

All of the dirt you've been throwing my way
It ain't so hard to take
That's right (that's right)
'Cos I know one day you'll be screaming my name
And I'll just look away
That's right (that's right)

Just go ahead and hate on me and run your mouth
So everyone can hear
Hit me with the worst you got and knock me down
Baby I don't care
Keep it up and soon enough you'll figure out
You wanna be, you wanna be
A loser like me
A loser like me

Push me up against the locker
And hey, all I do is shake it off
Or get you back when I'm your boss
I'm not thinking 'bout you haters
'Cos hey, I could be a superstar
I'll see you when you wash my car

All of the dirt you've been throwing my way
It ain't so hard to take
That's right (that's right)
'Cos I know one day you'll be screaming my name
And I'll just look away
That's right (that's right)

Just go ahead and hate on me or run your mouth
So everyone can hear
Hit me with the worst you got and knock me down
Baby I don't care
Keep it up and soon enough you'll figure out
You wanna be, you wanna be
A loser like me
A loser like me
A loser like me

Hey you over there
Keep the "L" up in the air
Hey you over there
Keep the "L" up 'cos I don't care
You can throw your stick
And you can throw your stones
Like a rocket just watch me go
Yeah
L-O-S-E-R
I can only be who I are

Just go ahead and hate on me and run your mouth
So everyone can hear
Hit me with the worst you got and knock me down
Baby I don't care
Keep it up and soon enough you'll figure out
You wanna be, you wanna be
A loser like me

Just go ahead and hate on me and run your mouth
So everyone can hear
Hit me with the worst you got and knock me down
Baby I don't care
Keep it up and soon enough you'll figure out
You wanna be, you wanna be
A loser like me
A loser like me
A loser like me
A loser like me
A loser like me
