"I Like You Better When You're Not Around" as written by Kate Miller-heidke and Keir Nuttall....
Long, long ago in the years BC
The women used to gossip while they made their tea
It's been our method of survival, right from the start
But girl you've really gone and turned it into an art

After I see you I feel dirty as hell
Like you've contaminated me with that peculiar smell
That comes from dishing up the dirt on all your closest friends
"I mean like what the hell is with her, I mean, no offense"

So please don't take it to heart
When I say can we start to spend time apart
But frankly my dear
This friendship is toxic
Like a fox and a hound

I like you better when you're not around

Don't wanna hear about your bitchy scene
And I don't really care who gave who what disease
As if don't even know you say just the same about me
Do you really think I'm that naive?

So please don't take it to heart
If I say can we start to spend time apart
Cause frankly my dear
This friendship is toxic
Like a fox and a hound

I like you better when you're not around

I L-I-K-E you better when you are N-O-T around

So please don't take it to heart
If I say can we start to spend time apart
Cause frankly my dear
This friendship is toxic
Like a fox and a hound

I like you better when you're not around
