Original Performer:

Parody Song Title:

"Why - When You See Me - Don't You Smile?"

The Lyrics

A parody about someone I knew at college who hated me for a year with no apparent motive. I always associated Steve Harley's song with that person for this reason.
You've said it all
I know you don't like me
Never have done
Never will
This silly game
Be careful what you say
Act your age now
Seventeen

Ooh, such snarls, such snarls
Don't you have any natural charm?

Why - when you see me - don't you smile?
You snarl what you want - being vile

I just don't get
Your new hatred of me
Don't think much of you
I don't speak
Is this just a test?
To make me get angry
Well, you lose
It won't work

Ooh, such words, such words
Why do you think I even heard?

Why - when you see me - don't you smile?
Just snarl what you want - acting vile?

You'll get no more
Not one response from me
I think it's funny
All your dislike
Can you ignore my dislike of you too
I know maturity
Act with it now

Give up, give up
I don't say maybe I'll try

Why - when you see me - don't you smile?
You snarl what you want - acting vile?
