"Your Man" as written by and Gregory D./harwell Camp....
I don't know why I'm with you
The only right thing I do is get along with you
And days go bye-bye for you but they fly by for me
It's true
I talked to you late last night
You said it wasn't all right but it would be all right
And when you sleep by yourself
You're not alone I'm with you
Oohweooh

But you weren't listening when I told you everything
That you need I ain't got
You should be gone by now but you're not

I play guitar all night long
And I know hundreds of songs and I'll just play them all
And even when I get home somehow you're still alone
It's true
I don't know why you're with me
The only reason I see some sort of fetish thing
Some people like to be pleased and
Some like to be teased
Which are you

I tried to warn you but you said just play dead
As long as we stay
True

But you weren't listening when I told you everything
That you need I ain't got
You should be gone by now but you're not
But you're not


Did your head not receive the shape of everything
That you are and I am
I shouldn't be happy as your man

You know that I am

I play guitar all night long
And I know hundreds of songs and I'll just play them all
And when you sleep by yourself
You're not alone I'm with you
As long as we stay true--whoowoowhoowoo whoowhoowhoo--

But you weren't listening when I told you everything
That you need I ain't got
You should be gone by now but you're not
But you're not

--You weren't listening when I told you everything
That you need I ain't got
You should be gone by now but you're not

But you're not
But you're not
But you're not
But you're not
But you're not

    General Commenti used to think this song was about a girl who was obsessed over a guy (the singer) and when the singer says "But you weren't listening when I told you everything That you need I ain't got You should be gone by now but you're not" he was saying that he just wanted her to leave him alone. but after i listened to it yesterday now i think the singer cheated on the girl or something and he feels terrible about it. but the girl loves him so much that she stays with him and he feels so bad that he says "you should be gone by now but your not"

    also i wanna say that smash mouth is such a better band then people give them credit for. people just think theyre one hit wonders but they really do have great music. i actually didnt even start listening to them until 2 summers ago when i saw that there self titled album was in a used CD bin at FYE where they all cost 25 cents. im really glad i bought it and i wish people would give smash mouth more credit

    General CommentI love the emotion you feel in this song. Smash Mouth was my first rock band back in 3rd-4th grade. I had forgotten them until i came across their cd and uploaded it into iTunes. This is the best song on their album.
