lyrics

I cried on the day that you left me
But that heartbreak turned into a blessing
I've found someone new / someone better than you
who knows what I want without asking

Google knows me better than you ever did
It listens, it cares, and it documents it
It stores all my wishes in its giant brains
Where they will always remain.

Real men can be so distant and mean
And are hard to reach, even with texting
But Google's on my phone/Doesn't leave me all alone
Except when I don't charge my battery

You hid and cracked jokes when my friends would get married
You'd find an excuse to take off then
But Google knows my gender, my friends and my age
And offers me wedding rings often
Maybe a little too often

Sure there are problems, like, Google can't see
It can't cuddle, or cook or brew me a cup of tea
But when I am lonely/ or forget what I need
Google will Auto-complete me.

Google knows me better than you ever did
It listens, it cares, and it documents it
It stores all my wishes in its giant brains
Where they will always remain.
