Mean to Me

Play MP3
We were never lovers--in fact, we weren't even friends
Even though we went to the same school.
She said I was ugly, stupid, weird and dense
I wondered why she had to act so cruel.
Although I also kind of understood that she could tell what I was feeling
Which was hardly good, since she found me unappealing.

	But oh, how I wish that I could have her
	That she'd gladly give herself to me. 
	Oh, how I wish that she would have me,
	But she only wants to be 
        Mean to me.

Okay, so I'm weird, so I guess it must have scared you
That a freak like me was hot for your bod 
But it's not like you were fussy about all those other guys who scored you 
I'd say your value system was... flawed.
But who am I to judge? You're just getting what you want.
And should I bear a grudge just because I can't?

	But oh, how I wish that I could have you
	That you'd gladly give yourself to me.  
	Oh, how I wish that you would have me,
	But no, you'd always rather be 
        Mean to me.

I suppose I will get over you--someday.  I mean, 
Except for being beautiful you're really not that nice at all.
I'll be older and wiser and much harder to demean,
But I can hardly wait; this is no fun at all.
I don't really want revenge; I'm not one of those guys,
But I wouldn't mind a turnaround and have you finally realize:

	That someday you'll wish that I would have you
	And that I'd let you give yourself to me, 
	But it'll be too late, sorry, I won't want to
	Because you always had to be
        Mean to me.
