Raise Your Glass Lyrics

Right right, turn off the lights
We gonna lose our minds tonight
What's the dealio?

I love when it's all too much
5AM turn the radio up
Where's the rock and roll?

Party crasher, panty snatcher
Call me up if you are gangster
Don't be...

    From my own experiences, I think the song is about the 'different person'. "Raise your glass if you are WRONG in all the RIGHT ways." You are wrong to the 'preps' but to yourself and a lot of other people or the 'under dogs' you are 'right. She speaks on every ones behalf. The nerds (too school for cool) the gangsters, the preps, the under dogs, the players EVERYONE! Thats one of the many reasons the song became popular.

    5 stars if you are wrong, in all the right ways!

    I've seen some other people posting about their confusion when I don't think it could be simpler.

    As listed above, it's about being the underdog, the 'uncools' of society when in reality there's probably more of them then there are 'cool' 'preps' whatever you want to call them.

    It's about not feeling down on yourself, 'we will never be anything but loud...we will never be anything but nitty gritty dirty little freaks' - so if this is how we are, then let's get the hell on with it. We'll be partier, bigger, badder and cooler than anyone who has been.

    I also think from Pink's perspective (whether she wrote the song herself or not) it kinda says that she would party with anyone, because she knows where it's at. It also refers lyrically to 'my underdogs' a possessive, not just THE underdogs etc. It uses inclusive language like we.

    It sounds to me she's just trying to say:
    -Don't care about what others say.

    This song is really important to me.It says no matter who you are if other think badly about you because your different then fuck them you should be you and if they got a problem with you then forget them.It's their lose for not getting to no someone as awesome as you.If you're weird be weird.Being normal is boring

    Don't be afriad to show who you are. Don't worry about what the haters think because they'll just find someone else after they've made you as much like them as they can.
    If you're a nerd or an underdog, don't give a flying F*** about what everyone else thinks.

    She's saying that everyone fits in somewhere and not everyone can be "cool" but that doesn't matter because there are awesome people in all the groups "jocks" " geeks" etc.

    The song is about a meeting between her and someone who she fell for.
    It tells a complete story and only two people know the full details.
    party crasher or panty snacther is a more accurate line. pink is really ticked in this tracked b/c something was kept from her and over a pereiod time she hasnt gotten closure.
    Theres is two sides to every story.
    Raise your glass
    reminds me of a drink called....(tta)
    oops my glass is empty! I would call but got no number!
    thanks for the reminder

    i agree with bloodmoon
    people these days dont take the time to know who you really are.
    some guys only care if you have video games.
    some people only care if you have money at my schoolthe girls only care if you are hot

    it's about the underdogs as mentioned, but more so about just being yourself and enjoying yourself.. not to mention i saw parts of a graduation thats seemed to tell me that its not only be yourself but be the best you can be. Raise your Glass as in cheers a token of congrats for an achievement.

    I think "Raise Your Glass" is about differnt people, gay, nerds ect... In the video you see two men kissing, well maybe its anoucment to the "freaks"

    I think she's taking the piss out of all of those overly used, cliched phrases/sayings in the song like, "what's the delio," "oh hot damn," etc.

    Raise your glass to all the screwed up things you have done in life and not care about it.
