  • Oh, no
    Yeah, yeah

    She's got green eyes, and she's 5'5"
    Long brown hair all down her back
    Cadillac truck
    So the hell what
    What's so special about that?
    She used to model, she's done some acting
    So she weighs a buck o' five
    So I guess she's alright if perfection is what you like

    Oh, oh, and I'm not jealous, no, I'm not
    Oh, oh, I just want everything she's got
    Oh, oh, you look at her so amazed
    I remember way back when you used to look at me that way

    Tell me, what makes her so much better than me (so much better than me)?
    What makes her just everything that I can never be?
    What makes her your every dream and fantasy?
    Because I can't remember when it was me

    And now you don't feel the same
    I remember you would shiver every time I said your name
    You said nothing felt as good as when you gaze into my eyes
    Now you don't care I'm alive
    How did we let the fire die?

    Oh, oh, and I'm not jealous, no, I'm not
    Oh, oh, I just want everything she's got
    Oh, oh, you look at her so amazed
    I remember way back when you used to look at me that way

    Tell me, what makes her so much better than me (so much better than me)?
    What makes her just everything that I can never be?
    What makes her your every dream and fantasy?
    Because I can't remember when it was me

    That made you smile
    That made you laugh
    Even if it makes you happier than you have ever been, oh me
    That was your world (me)
    Your kind of girl
    Nothing about me has changed
    That's why I'm here wondering

    What makes her so much better than me?
    (What makes her so much better than me?)
    What makes her just everything that I can never be?
    What makes her your every dream and fantasy?
    Because I can't remember when it was me

    What makes her so much better than me?
    (What makes her so much better than me?)
    What makes her just everything that I can never be?
    What makes her your every dream and fantasy?
    Because I can't remember when it was me

    When it was me
    When it was me
