What's wrong with me?
I'm kinda funny
I'm not a dummy
But I'm all alone
Nobody sees me
No one talks to me
Unless they're laughing
Laughing at me

Except for her
She was my true friend
Dancing with me
She was my girlfriend
Somebody, please, tell her for me
Wanda, you're my only love

You're so lucky
You're family's normal
Mom drives a big rig
My daddy's gay

No matter to her
She was my true friend
Dancing with me
She was my girlfriend
Somebody, please, tell her for me
Wanda, you're my only love

Until the day I threw you away
Now I'm alone, and I wish you were home

    General CommentActually, You Gave Your Love was written separately, but ended up being used because the studio didn't like Wanda, which is written from the perspective of Angus. Part of why they didn't use it is because in the original cut of the film, it was established that the character's father was gay and that his mother was a trucker. However, the movie was recut to have the mother dead and no mention of the father's homosexuality was made.

    General CommentWhy is there no comments on this song?

    As short and simple as the lyrics are, I really have a liking for this song. It's got a slow feeling and overall, it's just an amazingly good song about how he pushed away a girl and now realizes that she was all he needed all the time.

    Good song.

    General CommentIt's about an inflatable sex doll that he named Wanda. The lyrics all make sense. He threw the doll away. She is the only thing that understands him. she "dances" with him. The doll's family is normal while his is weird. The "dummy" in the opening verse.
