Insulting Song Lyrics:

"Your Guts (I Hate Em)"
The Insulting Lyrics:
I wrote this song about you
Just to let you know that I hate your guts
And I think you suck
I hate the way you look
You make me sick
I hate the way you talk
I wanna punch you in the face
I can't stand you at all
You drive me insane
Why won't you go away?
Why They're Insulting:
The singer hates the person they are talking to so bad they want to do physical harm to them. I don't know about you, but if anyone sang this to me, I would go home and cry.
