  • (I guess right now you've got the last laugh)

    I'm sorry if I seem uninterested
    Or I'm not listenin' or I'm indifferent
    Truly, I ain't got no business here
    But since my friends are here
    I just came to kick it but really
    I would rather be at home all by myself not in this room
    With people who don't even care about my well being
    I don't dance, don't ask, I don't need a boyfriend
    So you can go back, please enjoy your party
    I'll be here, somewhere in the corner under clouds of marijuana
    With this boy who's hollering I can hardly hear
    Over this music I don't listen to and I don't wanna get with you
    So tell my friends that I'll be over here

    Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
    I ask myself what am I doing here?
    Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
    And I can't wait till we can break up outta here

    Excuse me if I seem a little unimpressed with this
    An anti social pessimist but usually I don't mess with this
    And I know you mean only the best and
    Your intentions aren't to bother me
    But honestly I'd rather be
    Somewhere with my people we can kick it and just listen
    To some music with the message (like we usually do)
    And we'll discuss our big dreams
    How we plan to take over the planet
    So pardon my manners, I hope you'll understand
    That I'll be here
    Not there in the kitchen with the girl
    Who's always gossiping about her friends
    So tell them I'll be here
    Right next to the boy who's throwing up 'cause
    He can't take what's in his cup no more
    Oh God why am I here?

    Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
    I ask myself what am I doing here?
    Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
    And I can't wait till we can break up outta here

    Hours later congregating next to the refrigerator
    Some girl's talking 'bout her haters
    She ain't got none
    How did it ever come to this
    I shoulda never come to this
    So holla at me I'll be in the car when you're done
    I'm standoffish, don't want what you're offering
    And I'm done talking
    Awfully sad it had to be that way
    So tell my people when they're ready that I'm ready
    And I'm standing by the TV with my beanie low
    Yo I'll be over here

    Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
    I ask myself what am I doing here?
    Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
    And I can't wait till we can break up outta here

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh
