You say touché babe
I say en garde
You say i'm impossible
I say i'm just hard
You say i'm too lazy babe
I say I'm tired
Tired of hearin’ bout what’s wrong with me
Shut up!

You say i sleep too much
I say i'm still awake
You say i'm quite a handful
i say let's shake
You say i'm never serious
Come on, gimme a break
I’m tired of hearin’ ‘bout what’s wrong with me
Shut up!
Shut up! …

Wish we could give up talking just one day
Live in silence
We never hear each other anyway
Love speaks in sign language

You say i'm too horny babe
I say you're too hot
You say i drink too much
I say come on, let's have a shot
You say I'm argumentative
I say i'm not!
I’m tired of hearin’ ‘bout what’s wrong with me
I think it’s time we face reality
You wanna see a better side of me
Shut up!
Sgut up! ...

You think you’re so cute and clever
with all your little tough guy posturing.
who are you trying to impress?
Not me, that’s for fuckin sure.

You know
just because words rhyme
doesn’t make them poignant
or true.

Who are you targeting here anyways?
Joe six-pack?
Or Joe the plumber!!!
Or all your loser friends
who’s girlfriends buy them amps
so they can play this misogynistic crap even louder?

And what would you do if I said I’m out of here?
That’s when you’d turn a one-eighty
and get all goo-goo eyed and lovey-dovey.
Then you’d be all like “oh baby you know I’m just joking.
Aww sweet love, it’s just a SONG…
you know, just a persona, a little affectation,
it’s just ……entertainment. Show biz.
You’d be like “You don’t think I’m SERIOUS, do you?”
You know what?
I think you’re confused
You don’t know if you’re serious or NOT.
I think you’re insecure.
About… what?
You’re so afraid of playing beautiful, sensitive songs
what? the guys will call you a pussy?
I think you’re pathetic!
