"I Want You Around" as written by Joey Ramone, Johnny Ramone and Dee Dee Ramone....
I want you around I want you around

They're telling us
They're gonna make a fuss
About the two of us

I want you around
I want you around

I know what you're thinking about
That you must have some doubts
I know what you're thinking
When you find out I want you around

You know if it comes true
I'll be so good to you
I'll never treat you cruel
As long as I've got you around

I want you around
I want you around

You heard that I'm no good
Yeah, yeah I'm no good
But I'll treat you like I should

I want you around
I want you around

You know if it comes true
I'll be so good to you
I'll never treat you cruel
As long as I've got you around

I want you around I want you around

They're telling us
They're gonna make a fuss
About the two of us

I want you around
I want you around

I want you around
I want you around

    General CommentI first heard this song in the movie Rock 'n' Roll High School. If you're a fan of the Ramones and haven't seen it, shame on you!
