Uptight! Uptight! Uptight! Uptight!

I don't know you -- you don't have a clue. No one likes you... Uptight!
You want so much -- you make a fuss. Don't speak to us... Uptight!
The ego in your head is playing dead, afraid of the end. Uptight!
I forgot to tell you: you're boring, too, and you're ugly, too.

When I see you coming, I just go away. A plain old day, each and every day.
Sometimes I feel like saying "Please go away, leave me alone; please, not today."
When I see you coming, I just go away. A plain old day, each and every day.
Sometimes I feel like saying "Please go away, leave me alone; please, not today."

Uptight! Uptight! Uptight! Uptight!

You scare so much; your self-conscience sucks. You act so tough... Uptight!
Your mood swings at different speeds; it's never clear to me. Uptight!
What to say to you; no one can help you. No one trusts you. Uptight!
You're wound up tight like a wind-up clock. Can you sleep at night?

When I see you coming, I just go away. A plain old day, each and every day.
Sometimes I feel like saying "Please go away, leave me alone; please, not today."
When I see you coming, I just go away. A plain old day, each and every day.
Sometimes I feel like saying "Please go away, leave me alone; please, not today."
