Good Kid is a song sung by Percy Jackson in The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical.

Lyrics

Percy: Six schools in six years, been kicked out of everyplace.
Everything I ever do is wrong, never find where I belong,
Everybody on my case.

The same old story, the same old song:
Don’t act up, don’t act out, be strong.

I keep my head down, I keep my chin up, I keep my chin up,

But it ends up all the same, with:

Percy and Ensemble: Pack your bags, Percy your always to blame.

Percy: I never try to do anything, I never mean to hurt anyone,
I swear that I’m a good kid, a good kid, a good son.

But no one ever will take my side, I ever do is take the fall.
I swear that I’m a good kid, guess I’m good for nothing at all.

Gabe, was a world class jerk. Dad, was never there.
The only family, that really mattered, when she vanished into the air.

And now I finally find a haven, somewhere safe, where I can stay,
‘Til it (Joined by Ensemble: Pack your bags Percy, now go, go away!)

Percy: I never try to do anything. I never mean to hurt anyone. (Ensemble: Ahhh.)
I swear, I swear that I’m a good kid. Yeah, Percy that’s a good one.

But no one ever will take my side. (Ensemble: Ahhh.)
All I ever do is take the fall. (Ensemble: Take the fall.)
I swear, I swear that I’m a good kid, guess I’m good for nothing at-

All the schools in six years, every battle, everyday.
No one ever tells me that they’re proud, no one ever asks “Percy, how would you like to come round and stay?”

All I ever get are bad grades, and a bum rap, and a bad rep, and a good smack,
And no friends, and no home, and no mom-
She’s taken away.

I swear I never stole anything, I never meant to hurt anyone.
I swear, I swear that I’m a good kid, a good kid, who’s had a bad run.

All I need is one last chance, to prove I’m good enough for someone.

I’m good enough for someone x2. (Ensemble: Six schools in six years.)
