    Lyrics:
    Tonya Harding, my star
    Well this world is a cold one
    But it takes one to know one
    And God only knows what you are

    Just some Portland white trash
    You confronted your sorrow
    Like there was no tomorrow
    While the rest of the world only laughed

    Triple axel on high
    A delightful disaster
    You jumped farther and faster
    You were always so full of surprises

    Are your laces untied?
    What’s the frown on your face for?
    And just what are the skates for now?
    Tell me which is your good side?

    Are you lonely at night?
    Do you miss all the glory
    And the mythical story
    Of the Olympian life?

    Yamaguchi in red
    She had high rise and roses
    And red-carpet poses
    And her outfit was splendid

    Nancy Kerrigan’s charm
    Well she took quite a beating
    So you’re not above cheating
    Can you blame her for crying?

    Tonya, you were the brightest
    Yeah you rose from the ashes
    And survived all the crashes
    Wiping the blood from your white tights

    Has the world had its fun?
    Yeah they’ll make such a hassle
    And they’ll build you a castle
    Then destroy it when they’re done

    Tonya Harding, my friend
    Well this world is a bitch, girl
    Don’t end up in a ditch, girl
    I’ll be watching you close to the end

    So fight on as you are
    My American princess
    May God bless you with incense
    You’re my shining American star
