The Lyrics

This one goes out to one of my work colleagues who obviously has a problem with me. On Friday, during a 'meeting' with her, I stood up and told her how it is for the first time. I felt so proud of myself, I wrote this
You lie and stab right from the start
You twist my words, take them to heart, you
Make snaps when I help out
Stamp on my feelings and call me into conference

You say i've got it the wrong way round
You chew me up and spit me out
Make comments on every move
And now it's my chance i'm gonna f**king tell everyone

You're such a bitch, you're like an itch
Can't make you go away (no oh oh)
I know you lie, you make me cry
I won't take it from you (no no no)

Can't say i'm ignorant, i'll say your arrogant
Can't say i bitch a lot, i'm very vigilant
This is my chance so i'm gonna let go

I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now
I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now
I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now
I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now

You've been this way since I can remember
You stand and say that i'm offending (but what the f**'s the point of pretending?)
You're fat and ugly and not very clever
Just because i'm young and i'm friendly
Doesn't mean that you can moan endlessly

You wanna try? And make me cry?
What's the worst you can do? (oh oh oh)
I'll crush your lies, all you do is criticise
Yeh, i'm talking to you (oh oh oh)

You wanna nag at me? I'll guard my territ'ry
You wanna bark at me? Won't take it heavily
I'll hear you out before you've gotta go

I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now
I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now
I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now
I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now
I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now
I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now
I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now
I can't stand you no
I can't stand you now

Is this the first Libertines parody on the site, DAK? Well written, if a bit scary. 545

Kristof - Wow, I didn't realise! I can just see the headline now: "DAK DOES FIRST EVER LIBERTINES PARODY ON AMIRIGHT" my name in lights - very cool! Thanx Kristof. Rick - Yeah I did! She called me into a meeting (or tried) and I told her EXACTLY how I felt, which caught her off guard and now she won't even speak to me! Thanx!

What are your feelings on a reunion for the Ls, DAK? Or do we have to put up with freakin' Babyshambles? Doherty really needs to sort himself out. Oh, BTW...check out the Amiright Government thread; you've had a US state named after you..;-)

I dunno about the whole reunion thing, this is the only song of theirs I know. I agree with you about Docherty, though - he's a mess. And thankyou for naming a state after me. I'm very honoured.
