lyrics

I’m not very nice
I don’t wash my hair
I won’t come to your place when your parents are there

I won’t call you back
I’ll make fun of your friends
And after date two I won’t bring flowers again

But girl, how could you go?
I’m so charming and sensitive everyone knows
And babe, I know you won’t leave
I’ve got the best trick of all time up my sleeve

It’s not hard to play guitar
But it’s working for me
Yeah, it’s working for me

It’s not hard to play guitar
But it’s working for me
Yeah, it’s working for me

If we have a fight
And I happen to lose
I will turn off my phone and run away from you

I’ll probably cheat on you
More than two times
But I’ll win you back with some torturèd rhymes

And girl, I know it will work
When I make you feel special, you forget I’m a jerk
And your friends think that you scored
'Cause your boyfriend can almost play three different chords

It’s not hard to play guitar
But it’s working for me
Yeah, it’s working for me

It’s not hard to play guitar
But it’s working for me
Yeah, it’s working for me

I'm using you for your meal plan and all
But Baby, you are my Wonderwall
You probably should leave me; I'm just made of slime
But I can't talk now, girl; it's closing time
It is closing time

(nanananana)
I wrote you a song (This is it.)
(nanananana)
Can we go to your place?
(nanananana)
