GUEST,Mike Lyr Req: You Getting Bothered Doesn't Marry Me (21) RE: Lyr Req: You Getting Bothered Doesn't Marry Me 29 Nov 09


YOU GETTING BOTHERED DOESN'T MARRY ME

Well, yes, I've heard that you're engaged,
But I'm not upset and I'm not enraged.
You're doin' it for spite I know,
But I ain't got time to get shook though.

Why, the other night I watched the news,
Shined the dog, and walked my shoes,
Watched my sandwich, and eat TV.
You gettin' bothered doesn't marry me.

Well, I'm alright an' I'm OK.
Never did like you anyway.
Drop on by. We'll spend the day
Throwin' darts at a picture of your fiancé.

And by the way, your fiancé—
Did you say he drives a Chevrolet?
I'd like to meet that ugly jerk.
What route does he talk home from work?

Oh, he takes 47 West,
Police escort, bullet proof vest.
Well, I sure hope he don't hit a tree.
Your gettin' bothered doesn't marry me.

Well, you ask me if I'm alright
Just because I slashed my wrists last night.
It was an accident when I cut my wrists.
I was trying to cut my throat and missed.

Now I don't sleep much. my meals are few.
I try to cut out breathin', too!
I ain't got time for life, you see;
Best I can do.

Your gettin' bothered doesn't marry me.

But I feel good an' I feel fine.
That ??????????? was my Valentine.
You said I'd never make Who's Who,
But I sure got my picture in the Daily News.

They say I was driven to despair
By a disappointin' love affair.
But didn't I look and calm
Sittin' there huggin' my homemade bomb?

Yes, they say that I'm not serene
'Cause I wrote your name with that M-16,
But didn't I set the hostage free?
Your gettin' bothered doesn't marry me.
