D-D-D-Didi, you don't...
D-D-D-Don't know how you lost me.
And after almost two years
Y-Y-You lost me at "hello".

It gets worse and the worst,
It just gets the best of us.
It just gets worse and the worst,
It just gets the best of us.

D-D-D-Didi, this midwest address has made a mess of us.

P-P-Pack up my bag,
B-B-B-Borrow a couple bucks.
B-B-Borrow's the wrong word,
'C-C-Cause i'm not coming back.

I got a lead on the job
From a cousin in Silverlake.
So don't just stand there and shrug,
Didi, I'm turning the door knob.

It gets worse and the worst,
It just gets the best of us.
It just gets worse and the worst,
It just gets the best of us.
Shit gets and the worst,
It just gets the best of us.
You know it gets worse and the worst,
It just gets the best of us.

D-D-Didi, this midwest address has made a mess of us.

Oh and I know my doe is a little bit psycho.
She wears her head inside out.
And my doe, she looks alright though
With the lights low
With the lights low

It gets worse and the worst,
(oh and i know my doe is a little bit psycho)
It just gets the best of us.
(she wears her head inside out)
It gets worse and the worst,
(and my doe, she looks alright though)
It just gets the best of us.

Didi, this midwest address has made a mess of us.

L-L-Los Angeles is less than I longed for.
W-W-When awake in my car
D-D-Didi it's you I miss.

'Cause you're smarter than not.
I'm better than no one.
Didi, forgive me.
Do you wanna get married?

    Song MeaningI love this song <3
    For you stupid people, it isnt The Barber's Unhappiness part 2. The Barber's Unhappiness was based off a short story. Didi My Doe is about a guy who leaves his girl behind to become famous and he later misses her, but knows its a bit late now.

    General CommentThis song has absolutely nothing to do with The Barber's Unhappiness (which is based off of a short story by George Saunders). Part one of this song is actually a parody on "don't take my sunshine away" that Shawn has occasionally solo'd in concert.

    General Commentcan't believe there aren't ne comments on this song...def one of my favs on "decomposer"...the chorus is the best...

    Oh and I know my doe is a little bit psycho.
    She wears her head inside out.
    And my doe, she looks alright though
    With the lights low
    With the lights low

    freakin' awesome

    General Commentisn't it weird that this song is 3 minutes and 11 seconds long and was produced by Nick Hexum of 311?

    General Comment2 comments on this song? Are you serious? This song is amazing. It makes me so happy, even though I'm not 100% sure what it means.

    I love the stuttering. I love the clapping. I love the matches.

    General CommentI think this song is called Didi (My Doe Part 2) because the first part was The Barber's Unhappiness.
    In The Barber's Unhappiness, there's a part that says:
    "Do me a favor, would you, my Doe
    Don't come over later, don't spend three days in a row"

    This song reminds me of "Jesse's Girl" or "My Sharona" or "Jenny (867-5309)". It's cool.

    General CommentActually, this is a song about how a guy left Didi (his doe), For fame. But he ended up sleeping in his car, and doing nothing.
    " L-L-Los Angeles is less than I longed for.
    W-W-When awake in my car
    D-D-Didi it's you I miss."

    He's trying to get her to go out with him, and then offers marriage as the ultamite prize.
