  • Last night, she said
    "Oh, baby, I feel so down
    Oh, it turns me off
    When I feel left out"
    So I, I turned 'round
    Oh, baby, don't care no more
    I know this for sure
    I'm walking out that door

    Well, I've been in town for just about fifteen-oh minutes now
    And baby, I feel so down
    And I don't know why
    I keep walking for miles

    And say, people, they don't understand
    Your girlfriends, they can't understand
    Your grandsons, they won't understand
    On top of this, I ain't ever gonna understand

    Last night, she said
    "Oh, baby, don't feel so down
    Oh, it turns me off
    When I feel left out"
    So I, I turned round
    Oh, baby, gonna be alright
    It was a great big lie
    'Cause I left that night, yeah

    Oh, people, they don't understand
    No, girlfriends, they don't understand
    In spaceships, they won't understand
    And me, I ain't ever gonna understand

    Last night, she said
    "Oh, baby, I feel so down
    See, it turns me off
    When I feel left out"
    So I, I turned 'round
    Oh, little girl, I don't care no more
    I know this for sure
    I'm walking out that door

  • Layton from Paris, TxHahaha whoa, I never noticed how similar they are to each other! That's weird O_o
    Casablancas is hilarious xD
  • Susan from Toronto, CanadaThis song was obviously MASSIVELY influenced by the Doors' song "Touch Me."
  • Wes from Littlestown, PaOne of the funniest lyric misinterpretations ever by a friend of mine...instead of on top of this i ain't ever gonna understand, he would sing Count Chocolate ain't ever gonna understand. I still sing it that way for fun.
  • Chris from Runcorn, EnglandThe intro was based on Tom Petty's - American Girl. [The Album 'Is This It' doesn't have a question mark by the way mate]
