"Sad For Me" as written by and Eric Stefani Stefani....
Please Miss Fried
He don't mean to be mean
He just needs to leave
He hopes he does not
Cause you inconvenience
Why can't you see?

He says "please don't be sad for me"

Oh Miss Fried
Please believe you're his queen
He must fight for his dreams
Lovely Miss Fried
He will too miss you
He just needs to be free

He says "If I should ever cause you to
Bleed don't pretend to be naive"

Don't be naive

Don't take him wrong, let him be
Sometimes he feels like he ought to be alone-lone
Don't take him wrong, let him be
Sometimes he feels like he ought to be alone-lone

He says, "Please don't be sad for me"
"Please don't be sad for me"

    General Commenthey i was wondering if this song might be about the suicide of john spence (original ND singer)...otherwise im out of ideas...its an insane song though, very sad and an interesting turn for our ska/new wave heroes

    General CommentMaybe Miss Fried is her, and she is trying to tell herself things to remember, trying not to take her beaus (or dads?) need to be alone and stuff personally.. trying to remember it has nothing to do with her, and how he's not trying to hurt her.

    General CommentSo the mystery is solved! That's what I love about this website. Thanks everyone. This is a good song.

    Seems like Eric and the gang surely did fight for their dreams, as the song says. There's several songs on that first album that refer to their hopes and determination of "making it". Especially Big City Train.

    My InterpretationIt's about having your boyfriend's sister tell you about who he really is because his sister will know about him more than you because they grew up together, or it's about you telling your brother's girlfriend the same thing for the same reason.
