  • Sha, sha, sha

    I probably shouldn't say this
    But at times I get so scared
    When I think about the previous
    Relationship we shared
    It was awesome, but we lost it
    It's not possible for me not to care
    And now we're standing in the rain
    But nothing's ever gonna change until you hear
    My dear

    The seven things I hate about you
    The seven things I hate about you
    Oh, you
    You're vain, your games, you're insecure
    You love me, you like her
    You made me laugh, you made me cry, I don't know which side to buy
    Your friends, they're jerks, and when you act like them, just know it hurts
    I wanna be with the one I know
    And the seventh thing I hate the most that you do
    You make me love you

    It's awkward and it's silent
    As I wait for you to say
    But what I need to hear now your sincere apology
    When you mean it, I'll believe it If you text it I'll delete it
    Let's be clear
    Oh, I'm not coming back
    You're taking seven steps here

    The seven things I hate about you
    You're vain, your games, you're insecure
    You love me, you like her
    You made me laugh, you made me cry, I don't know which side to buy
    Your friends, they're jerks, and when you act like them, just know it hurts
    I wanna be with the one I know
    And the seventh thing I hate the most that you do
    You make me love you

    Compared to all the great things
    That would take too long to write
    I probably should mention
    The seven that I like

    The seven things I like about you
    Your hair, your eyes, your old Levi's
    When we kiss, I'm hypnotized
    You made me laugh, you made me cry, but I guess that's both that I'll have to buy
    Your hand in mine when we're intertwined, everything's alright
    I wanna be with the one I know
    And the seventh thing I like the most that you do
    You make me love you

    Sha, sha, you do, oh Writer/s: ANTONINA ARMATO, MILEY CYRUS, TIM JAMES

  • Emily Grace from Sheffield Love this song but I dunno what the 7 things she is on about in this song
  • Audrey from Lawrance, MaI love this song.
  • Molly from Baldwin, NyI will never understand why people waste their time talking about someone they hate :/
  • Maddie from Warrnambool, Australiai love your song it is great. she is the best singer she is very great at all her songs. I LOVE YOU MILEY CYRUS!!
  • Mere from Philadelphia, Pai alwats wished i could write a song like this. and actually no, phil in virgina, i believe her father had one famous song and was never famous again so miley is famous for herself
  • Vanessa from Long Island, NyIt has been rumored that the song was about Miley Cyrus' then boyfriend, Nick Jonas, of the Jonas Brothers.
  • Nikita from Drogheda, IrelandOkay, if you don't like the song, then don't say bad things about her when people do like her. You just make these people mad. I like her. She's just the kind of person that's like Marmite. You either love her or hate her. And that's that.
  • Fariha from Dhaka, BangladeshSeriously, who listens to this crap! "if you mean it, I'll believe it/if you text it, I'll delete it" - wow! How amazingly deep!I think the reason she'll delete the text is because she can't read.
  • Bay from Juno, AkThe lyrics are fine, but I really do hate Myley Cyrus. She needs to pick a personality and a name.'
  • Ashley from City, IaHere is my own "7 Things I hate about this song"
    1. Miley, you can't sing.
    2. She's obviously trying to be a "rock star" with this song. She is not and never will be a "rock star."
    3. She's a real brat. And not just in the song.
    4. Any music by any Disney star is bad.
    5. There's nothing to relate to in this song, unless you just broke up with your high school boyfriend whom you've only been dating for a month.
    6. I hate her style of teeny-bopper fake pop crap.
    7. I just hate the song, ok?
  • Robert from Denver, CoMiley's real name is Destiny. Her Dad (Billy Ray) always called her Smiley because she always smiled while she was growing up, so thats where they derived the name from.
  • Krista from Carbondale, PaI really like this song, even though I don't like her personally. It's a great teen pop song. Period.
  • Phil from Spotsy, Vai dont think anyone's ever called Disney music as having "amazing lyrics" haha I would also like to point out the irony of misspelling "genius"

    I do agree, though
  • Kristen from Philadelphia, Pai know i do not know everything miley has gone through, but from this song, it does not seem like much, she is not a very talented artist, very popy,
    but hey, maybe when she is 19 she will unwind and put out some great angst album full of amazign lyrics that show emotions raw and beautifully.
  • Kristen from Philadelphia, Paalright, this is not even close to pain abotu a relationship, sorry but its not... its stupid puppy love, if youwant to here real pain, listen to "you oughta know" by alanis morissette, andmany other of her songs, like "straightjacket" and "right through you" and miley was like "i want him to upset" alanis said in "you oughta know" she is not trying to get revenge, nor in any of her songs, just to let it out of her stystem. Miley clearly does not have real, big, serious probelms, and if that was like a therapy sesssion, wow.
    Alanis writes all of her songs, with sometimes a little help from a collaborator. MIley cannot call herself an artist, ethier can the Jonas Brothers.
    She thinks she has gone through a lot, jeez, i bet I have been through more, and awful lyrics.

    It is sad what gets by as "amazing lyrics" these days...


    JOHN LENNON WILL SHOW YOU GENEIUS LYRICS!

  • Stephanie from Dunstable, MaThe song is about nick because he gave her his dibetes necklace and she holds it in the video.
  • Phil from Spotsy, VaI really didn't mind the photo shoot, mostly because it was meant to be artistic. If it had been for Playboy, that's different.
  • Victoria from Rochester, Nyyeahh i hate her too ever since that photo shoot i mean she is only 15 omj she shouldnt be doing that kinda stuff she is too young i like the song but mily is be discusting right now and dont make othere people do your songs for you like your dad and also miley stop copying from the selena and demi show cuz you do!!!
  • Phil from Spotsy, Va7 things I hate about this song:
    1. Miley Cyrus has a very average voice and only attained popularity from her father.
    2. I have no respect for artists who make music for the sole purpose of making money.
    3. For the love of God, write your own songs!
    4. I just don't like the style
    5. It really makes no sense- why make an "angry" song if you're going to be nice to the person you're angry at?
    6. Seriously, start writing.
    7. Miley, you're 15 years old. Don't be a bitch. Don't make a song about an ex-boyfriend because it's just being bitchy to call him out over the radio. You're easily the most popular person your age in America and you have to call him out. Way to go. I bet you'll be another Lohan or Spears in a few years anyway. (By no means your fault, but nontheless, don't be a bitch now)
  • Maddi from Smithville, MoMiley Cyrus is an amazing singer!
    Shut up people who hate her. i think
    7 things is the best song she has written!
    if you dont like it, it is cuz you dont like
    how or wat she is sayin to this "guy" in her song. well get over it! cuz she is AH-MAZING!!!
  • Mileycyrusfan! from Fort Worth, Txthis song is great u people shutup she rocks and the lyrics are great just to let u know i added the lyrics and its sort of about the pain of a recent relationship so shes naming 7 things she hates about her ex and the 7 things she likes about him so go miley and stop hatin!
