Loser Like Me is an original song sung at Regionals 2011.

[edit] Performance

Loser Like Me is an original song performed in Episode 38 by New Directions during their second Regionals performance. While performing it, the girls are wearing blue dresses with black tights, and the boys are wearing black tuxedos.

Rachel Berry and Finn Hudson share the lead part, with New Directions singing in the background. It is a large musical number, with singing and dancing. While they are performing the song, Kurt Hummel, a member of the Dalton Academy Warblers and former New Directions member, begins passing out giant foam fingers to everyone in the crowd, and cheers for New Directions.

[edit] Inspiration

This song was written by New Directions to show that they have no fear towards what they are getting at McKinley High. It was specifically directed towards Sue Sylvester, former coach of the Cheerios and current Glee Club Director for Aural Intensity, one of the other participating glee clubs at Regionals.

While New Directions was writing, Mr. Schuester asked them to throw out ideas for their song, and all of the members of the glee club talked about what Coach Sylvester had done for them. For example, she had filled Brittany's and Santana's locker with dirt, and thrown sticks at Mercedes for an unknown reason. After they heard that she had tried to legally change Tina Cohen-Chang's name to Tina Cohen-Loser, they came up with the song title Loser Like Me.

[edit] Lyrics

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 freakshow (I don't care)
But, hey, give me just a little time
I bet you're gonna change your mind

All of the dirt you've been throwin' my way
It ain't so hard to take, that's right
'Cause I know one day you'll be screamin' my name
And I'll just look away, that's right

Just go ahead and hate on me and run your mouth
So everyone can hear
Hit me with the words 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
I'll get you back when I'm your boss
I'm not thinkin' 'bout you haters
'Cause hey, I could be a superstar
I'll see you when you wash my car

All of the dirt you've been throwin' my way
It ain't so hard to take, that's right
'Cause I know one day you'll be screamin' my name
And I'll just look away, that's right

Just go ahead and hate on me and run your mouth
So everyone can hear
Hit me with the words 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-up in the air
Hey, you, over there
Keep the L up, 'cause I don't care
You can throw your sticks, 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 words 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

Just go ahead and hate on me and run your mouth
So everyone can hear
Hit me with the words 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
