Wanna be by yourself and no one else - Alright
(Al-Al-Al-Alright)
And you wanna go out, wanna scream and shout - Tonight
(To-To-To-Tonight)
You want some space, like get out of my face - Alright
(Al-Al-Al-Alright)
And you want me back; put your life on track - Tonight
(To-To-To-Tonight)

Chorus :
You're a needy girl, I can tell when I look in your big brown eyes.
You want my world, but how can I do yours if I can't do mine?
I try to change, but somehow it's weird I don't feel the same.
It's all about what you want, what you say, how you feel, how you play the game.

You're a needy girl - and you want my world.
I try to change.
But it's not the same.

(Telephone rings)

[Hello?
Hey what's up baby.
Yeah, I'm in the studio right now- I'll call you later.
Nah, I really can't talk right now. I'll just call you back, alright?
I can't talk right now, I'll just call you later.
Yo, what?
Yo, I can't - look - yo, whatever.]


When you're home alone, you don't answer the phone - Alright
(Al-Al-Al-Alright)
But it's like a crime if I don't answer mine - Tonight
(To-To-To-Tonight)
So you've found a man, and he is more than a friend - Alright
(Al-Al-Al-Alright)
But you still call me for some TLC - Tonight
(To-To-To-Tonight)

Chorus :
You're a needy girl, I can tell when I look in your big brown eyes.
You want my world, but how can I do yours if I cant do mine?
I try to change, but somehow it's weird i don't feel the same.
It's all about what you want, what you say, how you feel, how you play the game.

You're a needy girl.
And you want my world.
I try to change.
But its not the same.

    General CommentExcellent song, AWESOME video, I highly suggest checking out the video, one of the best of 2004 (according to MTV), and definitely deserves that title.

    General Commenti think perhaps it is "but you still call me for some TLC" - I'm not so much sure that "skielsi" is a word...at least not in the english language

    nevertheless...another great song - the one that got me, and everyone, hooked into Chromeo.

    I suggest Me/My Man too -
    This is new (sound)
    we came to get (down)
    our name is Chro(meo)
    and we are in (control)

    General CommentUm, the whole thing is wrong. Here are the real lyrics.

    Wanna be yourself and no one else - Alright
    (Al-Al-Al-Alright)
    And you wanna go out, wanna scream and shout - Tonight
    (To-To-To-Tonight)
    You want some space, like get out of my face - Alright
    (Al-Al-Al-Alright)
    And you want me back; put your life on track - Tonight
    (To-To-To-Tonight)

    Chorus :
    You're a needy girl, I can tell when I look in your big brown eyes.
    You want my world, but how can I do yours if I can't do mine?
    I try to change, but somehow it's weird I dont feel the same.
    It's all about what you want, what you say, how you feel, how you play the game.

    You're a needy girl- and you want my world.
    I try to change.
    But it's not the same.
