[Chorus]
Hey, hey
You, you
I don't like your girlfriend
No way, no way
I think you need a new one
Hey, hey
You, you
I could be your girlfriend
Hey, hey
You, you
I know that you like me
No way, no way
No, it's not a secret
Hey, hey
You, you
I want to be your girlfriend

You're so fine
I want you mine
You're so delicious
I think about you all the time
You're so addictive
Don't you know what I can do
To make you feel all right?

Don't pretend
I think you know
I'm damn precious
And, hell yeah
I'm the motherfuckin' princess
I can tell you like me too
And you know I'm right

She's like so, whatever
You could do so much better
I think we should get together now
(And that's what everyone's talkin' about)

[Chorus]

I can see the way
I see the way you look at me
And even when you look away
I know you think of me
I know you talk about me all the time
Again and again

So come over here
And tell me what I wanna hear
Better yet, make your girlfriend disappear
I don't wanna hear you say her name ever again (and again and again)

Cause she's like so, whatever
You could do so much better
I think we should get together now
(And that's what everyone's talkin' about)

[Chorus]

[Bridge x 2]
(Oh)
In a second you'll be wrapped around my finger
Cause I can, 'cause I can do it better
There's no other, so when's it gonna sink in?
She's so stupid
What the hell were you thinkin'?

Hey, hey
You, you
I don't like your girlfriend
No way, no way

I think you need a new one
Hey, hey
You, you
I could be your girlfriend

No way, no way
Hey, hey
You, you
I know that you like me

No way, no way
No, it's not a secret
Hey, hey
You, you

I want to be your girlfriend
No way, no way
Hey, hey
You, you

I don't like your girlfriend
No way, no way
I think you need a new one

Hey, hey
You, you
I could be your girlfriend
No way, no way

Hey, hey
You, you
I know that you like me

No way, no way
No, it's not a secret
Hey, hey
You, you
I want to be your girlfriend
No way, no way
Hey, hey!

    General Comment:This song is so funny. She's a girl, can't she act like a girl. You kids just hate her because she's not depressed, emo-ish punk whatever anymore. lol Maturity is so overrated especially in the entertainment industry. My god.

    You may now go back and suck on your horrible life and listen to the many variety of depress artists that will gladly cater to your taste. go fuck off. lol

    I love avril because of this video. Oh and it's not a mockery, stop trying to have your old avril back. hahaha

    General Comment:you stupid naive f**ks.
    i'm not an avril fan by any means, but this song, and video i found hilarious.
    it's a blatent stab at the bubble-headed whorish antics of todays society, and at paris hilton and other paris-ites.

    avril has the ability to write very deep and soulful lyrics. that ability hasn't gone to waste. this song makes me think MORE of her.

    any celebrity daring to take a stab at the complete d****ebags out there is a hero in my eyes.

    watch the video, actually listen to the song and the tone it's sung in. maybe you could actually learn to find true meanings in songs, instead of just pretending you know whats going on.

    i applaud avril. and i love the song.

    General Comment:I can see where people are coming from with their opinions to this song. When I first heard it a couple of years ago, I agreed with you all saying that Avril has lost her creativity, and is behaving like... When, lets just say the dregs of female society and leave it at that.

    However, after analysing it a little and watching the music video, I must say that I think this is a mockery of those trying to obtain guys and steal them away. Equally, it's a bit of a mockery of 'nerd-like' girlfriends. Just the tone Avril sings this in is like saying 'God, this is how damn pathetic these people are'. I think it's quite a talent to be able to do something like that and make it have this double-meaning.

    Alternatively, I could be totally wrong, and Avril could just be having some fun with a bit of pop music and cheeky lyrics that are a bit lazy, but with a catchy beat no less. I mean, she did write 'What the Hell' in her 'Goodbye Lullaby' album... That's a bit like this too, just with far more meaning and a bit less crass.

    Regardless, I think it's a bit unfair to stereotype the people that listen and enjoy this kind of music -- Avril's fan base is not reserved for teenage girls, and even if it was, what's the problem with that? I'm not a teenager myself anymore (!), but I don't really understand the way people say 'this is the kind of thing teenage girls listen to' as though that's the ultimate insult. Just sayin'.

    General Comment:I'm not sure how I feel about this song. I thought Avril was showing a more "mature" side of her in her last album, and then she comes out with this song which sounds like it's directed to the "little girl teen crowds."

    But it is catchy, so I guess that's all that matters these days

    General Comment:I think the meaning of this song is pretty straightforward. Sassy girl thinks she could be a better girlfriend to some guy for various reasons. Lol.

    This song seems ridiculously immature.. like something she could've written before her debut which is sort of disappointing, especially since she's like 22 or something now, and this song sounds like its from the mind of a 15 year old. (no offense to any 15 year olds intended) Not a fave song from her, hopefully her entire new album doesn't consist of this "catchy" drivel. :)

    General Comment:This song is sooo stupid "she's like 'so whatever'" ? Very deep... (sarcasm for anyone that doesn't get that) I feel sorry for anyone who like this song, or Avril Lavigne for that matter!
