  • I've informed you to leave
    'Cause I can't afford to lose more sleep
    I get ill when I get tired
    So I'll try to rest if you'll stand guard

    Do, do-do-do, do, do-do-do, whoa
    Do, do-do-do, do-do-do

    I've informed you to leave
    'Cause I can't stand to hear you breathe
    I chew up and I choke down
    The scraps you choose to leave around

    Do, do-do-do, do, do-do-do, whoa
    Do, do-do-do, do-do-do

    Apparitions still won't leave me alone
    It's as if you never left
    How am I supposed to remember you
    When you won't let me forget?

    I've informed you to leave (I've informed you to leave)
    'Cause I can't afford to lose more sleep (I can't afford to lose more sleep)
    There's your shoes, and there's the door (there's your shoes, and there's the door)
    Please don't come here anymore (please don't come)

    Do, do-do-do, do, do-do-do, whoa
    Do, do-do-do, do-do-do Writer/s: Ed Robertson, Steven Page
