I Don't Want An Answer To That
by Boffo Yux Dudes


I’ve been here for years - after all this time
You stare at me with daggers covered in slime
I say I’m happy to be here, you know that I’m lying
I can force a grin but inside my heart is dying

Did you think I’m clever, or funny at all?
Maybe you thought I was a little too small?
Am I full of unmitigated gall? I guess...
I don’t want an answer to that.

Pretend everyone’s happy; it’s your little game
You twist your knives to hurt us and call it a shame
Are you happy to be here? You think I’m the same? Well....
I don’t want an answer to that.

It’s your party, so you can lie if you want to
At least acknowledge the crap that you put me through
I know that you slag me when you get the chance
Don’t pretend you really mean it when you ask me to dance

Did you think I’m clever, or funny at all?
Maybe you thought I was a little too small?
Am I full of unmitigated gall? I guess...
I don’t want an answer to that.

Pretend everyone’s happy; it’s your little game
You twist your knives to hurt us and call it a shame
Are you happy to be here? You think I’m the same? Well....
I don’t want an answer to that.

I couldn’t figure out just why you kept me around
Did you enjoy making me beg? Did you just like the sound?
You’ll excuse me as I turn and walk out the door
I don’t think you’ll even notice while you’re holding the floor.

Did you think I’m clever, or funny at all?
Maybe you thought I was a little too small?
Am I full of unmitigated gall? I guess...
I don’t want an answer to that.

Pretend everyone’s happy; it’s your little game
You twist your knives to hurt us and call it a shame
Are you happy to be here? You think I’m the same? Well....
I don’t want an answer to that.

about

Boffo Yux Dudes Boston

Old guys who should know better. The ones your parents warned you about. Allan Morgan and Tom Giarrosso head this version of BYD with Scott Mercer, using rabid optimism that they'll be remembered for more than just all those replays on Dr. Demento.
