"He Likes Me" as written by and Gordon Gano....





He likes me

he likes me

ooh... isn't that nice

he likes me

he likes me

ooh... isn't that nice

that your brand new friend

he likes your old true friend

and isn't that the way

that it ought to be

that your brand new friend

he has good will to send

and you're so free

you're so free

you're so free

and I am history

he likes you

he says that he loves you

ooh that's good to know

you like him

I hope you don't love him

and ooh you should know

that your old true friend

he doesn't like your brand new friend

person to person it's not on purpose

but I take it personally

and soon your brand new friend

I hope I'll have a bon voyage to send

and you're so free

you're so free

you're so free

and I am history

you say you won't pick

and you won't make a choice

but I'm so mad I could spit

and I hear it in your voice

you said he likes me

he likes me

ooh isn't that swell

he likes me

you said he likes me

ohhh tell him hell...

o from me

a great big hello from me

jesus always taught me

that I should love my enemy

darling my heart's in pain

that's why my song's insane

and you're so free

and I am history

he likes me

but I don't like him

    General CommentGordon Gano has such a great way of writing truely bitter songs!!!! This is a song about someone who's held a torch for someone for some time, never had the courage to say anything and has missed the boat when she meets someone... A sorry state of affairs and we've all been there I'm sure. I think the fact that he has quite a whiney voice (not a bad thing at all!) compliments this track really well!

    General CommentI swear to god, you wouldn't ever really realize it at first, but the Femmes have more callous, bitter songs than any other band out there...

    General CommentAs I have said on "Good Friend", "From what I can tell, this has nothing to do with romantic relationships. This is about friendship."
