"Don't Mug Yourself" as written by and Michael Geoffrey Skinner....
A new day, another morning after
Leanin' back on my chair in a greasy spoon cafeteria
Last night was some bit leeriness done our way
But again we're back in like a day
Chattin' shit sittin' at the wall table telling jokes
Playin with the salt looking out the window
Girl brings two plates of full English over
With plenty of scrambled eggs and plenty of fried tomato
Get my phone out about give this girl a shout
See if she had a nice time last night uptown
Ask if she fancy's tryin' it again some time
Then Cal grabs the phone like oy!oy!oy!oy!

Hold it down boy, your head's getting blurred
I know you can't stop thinking of her
By all means, you can vibe with this girl
But just don't mug yourself, that's all don't mug yourself

(Talking)
Seriously Mike, you fucker
No! No! No! I mean, I'll fuckin', I'm no way really tryin'
I mean I'll fuckin', I can take it or leave it, believe
And then Calvin's like, oy

You need to hold it down Jack
Put your phone back
Quit starin' into space and eat your snack that's that
She'll want you much more for not hangin' on
Stop me if I'm wrong, Stop me if I'm wrong
Why should she be the one who decides
Whether it's off or on, or on, or off or on?
Now the girl's rude, I now she's rude
But she screwed right through you, you'll be on your knees soon

Hold it down boy, your head's getting blurred
I know you can't stop thinking of her
By all means, you can vibe with this girl
But just don't mug yourself, that's all don't mug yourself

And I'm like, honestly it's not like that
Your actin' like I'm prancing like a sap jumpin' when she clap's and that
Oy, do you really think I act whack
'Cause I'm telling you I'm servin' the aces and it's game set and match?
Perfectly in control of this goal, I've got the lead role
Won't be foldin', I'm older than you told, girl sold, high speed's gold
Game over, game over, too cold

Hold it down boy, your head's getting blurred
I know you can't stop thinking of her
By all means, you can vibe with this girl
But just don't mug yourself, that's all don't mug yourself

Hold it down boy, your head's getting blurred
I know you can't stop thinking of her
By all means, you can vibe with this girl
But just don't mug yourself, that's all don't mug yourself

    General CommentJust heard this song on the ben sherman cd and it totally caught my attention. It's awesome and sooo funny. I dated a guy recently who'd always write "oi, oi, oi" in his e-mails, I could never figure out why he did that. Anyway, this song cracked me up, I think what happened in this song happened with this guy and myself. I think he really liked me at first, but then something happened (don't know exactly what, something about needing to be alone after a bad breakup with his ex 6 months prior, maybe he got back together...) and he never called me again. Oh well... game over, too cold.

    General Commentthis is a great song and a very funny one, but it also has a good warning in it about moving too fast and obsessing and the like.

    General CommentThis song is about getting with a girl in a drunken haze and her filling your mind, but not wanting to call her in case you scare her off- This song basically happened to me recently, but when I finally gave the girl a ring it turned out she had a Boyfriend she didn't tell me about! my life is turning into a fucking streets record...
