Whatís That Word Again?

The feeling you get
When youíre the new kid
No one asks your name
No one says hello
Whatís that word again?

The feeling you get
At a party on Saturday night
Everyone is mingling
But you sit there alone.
Whatís that word again?

The feeling you get
When youíre on a sports team
Your talent isnít of the others
So they never pass you the ball
Whatís that word again?

That word is exclusion
To prevent
Someone from engaging
To prevent
Participation
