The Lyrics

Why in the world do you act like you do?

Before you started acting like a complete dickhead
I really didn't mind having time to spend
But now you use your feet when you mean to use your hands
You can talk to yourself but you still won't understand

Hey - man you really really don't get it
Hey - and you really don't listen no more
Hey - and I'm really fed up with it
Why in the world do you act like you do?

It's bad enough that you can't even control yourself
But trying to stop it well you know that just won't work
I say you're not that kind of person - you're that kind of man
Don't matter how hard you try you just can't understand

Hey - man you really really don't get it
Hey - and you really don't listen no more
Hey - and I'm really fed up with it
Why in the world do you act like you do?

Hey - man you really really don't get it
Hey - and you really don't listen no more
Hey - and I'm really fed up with it
Why in the world do you act like you do?

I might be sympathetic or cut you a little slack
If you thought that you were competent to give a little back
But you're screwed up in the morning you're screwed up in the night
You cover up yourself with non-sensical lies
So I'll see you man tomorrow - acting like a fool
You'll say you know how to swim then drown into a pool
Don't matter how many times I try to lend a hand
Cause even if I explain you still won't understand

Hey - man you really really don't get it
Hey - and you really don't listen no more
Hey - and I'm really fed up with it
Why in the world do you ---
Why in the world do you ---
Why in the world do you act like you do?
