  • My girl's mad at me
    I didn't wanna see the film tonight
    I found it hard to say
    She thought I'd had enough of her
    Why can't she see?
    She's lovely to me
    But I like to stay in
    And watch TV on my own
    Every now and then

    My girl's mad at me
    Been on the telephone for an hour
    We hardly said a word
    I tried and tried but I could not be heard
    Why can't I explain?
    Why do I feel this pain?
    'Cause everything I say
    She doesn't understand
    She doesn't realise
    She takes it all the wrong way

    My girl's mad at me
    We argued just the other night
    I thought we'd got it straight
    We talked and talked until it was light
    I thought we'd agreed
    I thought we'd talked it out
    Now when I try to speak
    She says that I don't care
    She says I'm unaware
    And now she says I'm weak Writer/s: Ronald White, William Robinson Jr.
