If you weren't so stupid, I could have loved you.
And if you weren't so stupid, but you're pretty stupid.
And if you weren't so busy, I could have loved you.
But you work in an office and you've got other offers.

Tell me, what is his name now? What is his name?
I'm excited to hear the news. Tell me, what is his name now?
What does it say about you?

But let's not be friends, or else this will never end.
Let's not be friends for sure, for sure.

And if you weren't so ugly, I could have loved you.
It's something I tell myself when I'm down to get high.
Lord.
If you made me a coffee, I could have loved you.
And I'd make you hot chocolate and anything you wanted.

Tell me, who is invited?
So fucking delighted to see all the boys, you see.
Tell me, why don't I fight it? What does it say about me?

And let's not be friends, or else this will never end.
Let's not be friends for sure, for sure.

We'd adopt, we'd have dogs.
I have all the things he's got.
But I'm not.

So let's stop, pretend that there'll be a happy end.
Let's not be friends for sure, for sure.

We'd adopt. We'd have dogs.
I have all the things he's got.
But I'm not.

    My InterpretationAfter a couple of listens, my interpretation is this song is about sour grapes.

    "If you weren't so stupid, I could have loved you
    And if you weren't so stupid
    But you're pretty stupid
    And if you weren't so busy, I could have loved you
    But you work in an office
    And you've got other offers"
    >>However he knows her, it isn't through work, and he's tried to hint that he wants to be more than friends with her, but she hasn't caught on, hence her being "stupid."

    "Tell me, what is his name now?
    What is his name?
    I'm excited to hear the news
    Tell me, what is his name now?
    What does it say about you?"
    >>He's always listening to her talk about her boyfriends, and faking his enthusiasm (or hoping she catches his sarcasm).

    "But let's not
    Be friends
    Or else this will never end
    Let's not
    Be friends for sure
    For sure"
    >>He doesn't want to stay where they are in their relationship forever.

    "And if you weren't so ugly, I could have loved you
    It's something I tell myself when I'm down to get high
    Lord
    If you made me a coffee, I could have loved you
    And I'd make you hot chocolate
    And anything you wanted."
    >>He tells himself she's "ugly" and that's why he isn't doing anything more, and that if she'd shown him any positive sign he would have responded in kind.

    "Tell me, who is invited?
    So fucking delighted
    To see all the boys, you see
    Tell me, why don't I fight it?
    What does it say about me?"
    >>Again, he's there to hear her news, hear her talk about her upcoming wedding, and then he wonders why he isn't saying anything, why he isn't doing anything.

    "And let's not
    Be friends
    Or else this will never end
    Let's not
    Be friends for sure
    For sure

    "We'd adopt
    We'd have dogs
    I have all the things he's got
    But I'm not"
    >>He muses on what their future together would look like, even as she tells him what her beau is like. He thinks about how he and her beau have things in common, but they're not the same.

    "So let's stop
    Pretend
    That there'll be a happy end
    Let's not
    Be friends for sure
    For sure

    "We'd adopt
    We'd have dogs
    I have all the things he's got
    But I'm not"
    >>He's giving up on all chance of pursuit, completely giving up on his dream of what they could have had together.

    (It's also my opinion that he's an entitled jerk.)
