all Bowling For Soup lyrics

Here she Comes again with another boyfriend,
introduces me and says,
"this is the sweetest guy I've ever known."
Couldn't say a word. I never say a word.
She wraps her arms around my neck.
"You are the sweetest guy I've ever known.

And I say again "THIS IS THE LAST TIME"

When you left before I didn't care too much
Cause I just wished you'd go away
And I see you now and it's just too much
Takes my breath away...Just like a suckerpunch

There she goes again she says I'm her best friend
and "we're better off this way" she says
cause you're still the sweetest guy I've ever known.
Her smell stays on my shirt, I can't say a word
can't swallow this lump inside my neck
cause you're still the sweetest girl I've ever known.

And I say again......
And I said before.....
And I say once more "THIS IS THE LAST TIME"back to top
The Bitch Song
Music By: Bowling For Soup

Is it OK if I speak to you today

You've been pissed off for a week now

but, nothing I could say could make you look up.

Or crack up. Is there anything that I can do

Anything to show you

You're a bitch

but, I love you anyway

OH OH You can't sing

But, You still put me to sleep

Baby, You're a bitch

Hey Hey Hey Hey

You make me sick

But, Don't ever go away G D
So you tell me that thereís nothing left to say

I drive you face the window

Then you're in my face telling me to grow up

I wish you'd grow up

I can't wait until you fall asleep, I wonder if you know that (chorus)
La La La ....

Yeah you're a bitch but I love you anyway

So why don't you......Stayback to top
Pictures He Drew
He got up this morning
Rolled out of bed
And went out to change the world
Her head on his shoulder
He settles her down
It all started over and over again

His mom made him breakfast
Gets on the bus goes out to see the world
He lies on the ground, wipes blood from his nose
Wonders why heas the one that doesnat fit in

The pictures he drew
But if only they told him
Youare never gonna be like anyone
And thatas okay
Give in to youare feelings
Donat give in to the ones that will own ya
Sometimes they just donat go away

Six double martinis, a night on the town
It sure makes the mornings long
He never imagined a life time lie this would be
The only thing to let him get in

He gets up
He falls down
Wishes he could get the nerve to end it all now
He picks up the phone
And he slams it down
And swallows another
Now heall never come around
Itas all or none
Itas one for one
You can make it
But you gotta do it all for youare selfback to top
Dance With You
Whatas it mean to be alone now
Howas it feel to be by yourself
You got me, I didnat get you back
Then you got me, again

You got inside through a hold in my defenses
And how you fit Iall never understand
But you got into me, and I got into you
And now, I wanna do it again

Howas it feel to know now
Whatcha think about that
You got me, now we canat go back
Youall never get me again

I only wanna dance with you
I only wanna dance with you

You go up down turn around merry go round and
Shake it shake it two times dose doe cotten eyed joe
Run around pull me down never gonna come around
Iam never gonna forget youback to top
You and Me
All I needed was an answer
I didnat ask for nothin more
And she said, ajust leave your jacket at the doora
And we were locked inside
Again it started her we go
If you can help me let me know.

So she asked if I could stay there
And I say weave been through this before
And she said ajust tell me, what do you expect
And we were locked inside
And it started here we go
You can hold my hand, but
Donat go back on me
Just remember that itas gonna be alright
And youall see we can have it all
Canat you see that Iam right here waiting, looking
Back at you
You and me, weave got nothing to lose. Oh Yeah!

So she wraps me up inside her
And I knew we should not get that far
And she said a just close your eyes and say you love
And we were locked inside, again...

All I need to kill the pain
Is for someone else to blame
And Iave waited my whole life
I try to run but I canat hideback to top

I don't know
when it all began to simmer down. Suddenly I don't want you around.
And I'm siting here
I'm drowning in the worries and the fear.
And now I wish it wasn't quite as clear.

Cause I am starting to forget now
It dissappears so fast
I'm waiting for "the Question" to be asked.
And if you saw me now
you'd not be dissappointed
somehow I've gotten to a point
and I'm not ever coming back
my minds made up I'm staying for as long as it has taken

(to get)
Close to you, I wanna get, Close to you and
I need more time, (I wanna get)
Close to you, I just want, Close to you and
I'm not sure why!

Sometimes I
I get up in the morning so surprised.
It takes me some time to realize.
Lately I,
Have really wished that you were still around.
Here to pick me up off of the ground.back to top

She got a valentine from Gary
I opened it up it said, "Would you please be mine."
I gave her flowers and some candy
She opened them up and said, "You're trying to make me fat."

I just want a new girlfriend
I just want someone to make me laugh
I just want a new girlfriend
I just want someone to laugh at me

not to smart, not to tall
likes to watch TV and play basketball

I baught a car and let her drive it
She opened the door and said, "Oh bother, this is red."
I gave her all my notes from algebra
She opened em up and said, "I can't believe you're so stupid."

I won't ever make her wash my car, NO!
I won't ever take a walk, not unless she's there.
Oh,oh,oh,oh!back to top
Everybody knows if youave got the coolest clothes
Youave got everybody on your side
Anyone can see if you hang around with me
Youall be by yourself on Friday night

Itas hard to understand
If you never lose you never learn to want to win
When it all comes down
All around you now
Donat let it bring you down

You had all the moves you had all the coolest doos
And you always had the coolest car
I never learned to dance, I had hair down to my ass
And now Iam gonna be a Rock Star

Raise your hands
Stomp your feet
I love everyone and now they love meback to top
Back there somewhere
I can hear her calling out
Iíve got so much I can tell her
She knows I miss her,
I know she thinks about me too
I just cannot wait to kiss her

On the boulevard we danced
I tell her if I get the chance
Just what all this means to me
Maybe I should say we can run away
Never look back
Never doubt it

You donít owe me anything
I owe everything to you
Take my hand and
Hold on.

I think she likes me
I can see it in when she laughs
She wont say it but I see it
Loves to wake me
Just to see if Iím asleep
Or just to tell me to move closerback to top
Hang On
I used to see you every morning
Even when I didnat want to
You used to like to watch us play downtown
As long as I sang a song for you

But nothing stays the same
And itas driving me insane
Oh, you know weave got it so bad
And nothing you can say
Can make me want to stay
But still your hanging on

You say you never saw this comina
So why does it always fall on you
I think you call me every time you se a phone
You hang up but I know itas youback to top
Summer of '69
Got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it till my fingers bled
Was the summer of '69

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Joey got married
I shoulda known, we'd never get far

Oh, when I look back now
The summer seemed to last forever
And if i had the choice,
Yeah, I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Ain't no use in complaininí
When you got a job to do
Spent my eveningís down at the drive-in
And that's where i met you, girl

Standiní on your mama's porch,
You told me that you'd wait forever
Oh, and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life

Oh yeah

Back in the summer of '69, uh-huh

Yeah, we were killiní time
We were young and restless, we needed to unwind
I guess nothing can last forever,
Forever, no

And now the times are a-changiní
Look at everything that's come and gone
Everytime when i play that old six-string
I think about you, wonder what went wrong

Standiní on your mama's porch
that's right
you told me it would last forever
Oh and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life

Oh yeah

Back in the summer of '69, uh-huh

Me and my baby had 69, oh yeah

Back in the summer of '69back to top
All Figured Out
I was the one who had shit for brains
I never took the time to notice
That I was always wrong and you weren't
You were the one who gave up sp many things
Took you for granted
But you understanded
It was just a phase

And Iave got a new direction
A blueprint for erection of a new life
Itas such a simple situation
Some kind of masturbation
With a new twist
I donat know why

Iave got it all figured out
We can, make it
And Iall never let you down
Just take my hand
And understand
Thereas a lot of tomorrows
I let you down
You had no complaints
Watched as the world went spinna
Around wihout you
You waited for me
You wanted diamonds
I came up with rollerblades
Shot down again but you smiled
Shook your head
And knew that I changedback to top
