The Lyrics

We both work down at the shopping mall
But you don't even seem to notice me at all
We once dated, but you made it plain
Won't let me, let me, let me, let me, see you again

Everything I said you found deplorable
Everything I did you found just horrible
Oh, why can't I call you?
(Why can't I call you?)

I pick my nose in public and I constantly swear
I suffer from acne and I'm losing my hair
You're repulsed by me, I don't have a clue
I'm searching, searching, searching through the phone book for you

I can't get a single break with you around
Every pick-up line I try, you shoot me down
Why can't I call you?
(Why can't I call you?)
(Why can't I call you?)

I just, I just can't get over you, it seems
You keep appearing in my dreams
I'm beggin', I'm pleadin', I want, I need to be with you
But you keep, you keep, you keep, you keep saying we're through

Every day, it's always you I'm lusting
Every day, you think I'm more disgusting
Oh, why can't I call you?
(Why can't I call you?)

Why can't I call you?
Why can't I call you?
Why can't I call you?
Why can't I call you?
Why can't I call you?
Simply hideous

This one was really good! I can tell it's been around a while, but not very many people have voted/commented on it.
