"Hey Leonardo (she Likes Me For Me)" as written by Eliot Walker Sloan, Jeffrey Curtis Pence and Matthew Joseph Senatore....
She don't care about my car
She don't care about my money
And that's read good cause I don't got alot to spend
But if I did it wouldn't mean nothin
She likes me for me
Not because I look like Tyson Beckford
With the charm of Robert Redford
Oozing out my ears
But what she sees
Are my faults and indecisions
My insecure condition
And the tears upon the pillow that I shed
She don't care about my big screen
Or my collection of DVDs
Things like that just never mattered much to her
Plus she don't watch too much TV
And she don't care that I can fly her
To places she ain't never been
But if she really wants to go
I think deep down she knows that
All she has to say is when
She likes me for me
Not because I hang with Leonardo
Or that guy who played in "Fargo"
I think his name is Steve
She's the one for me
And I just can't live without her
My arms belong around her
And I'm so glad I found her once again
And I'm so glad I found her once again
And I'm so glad I found her once again
Gazing at the ceiling as we entertain our feelings in the dark
The things that we're afraid of
are gonna show us what we're made of in the end
She likes me for me
Not because I sing like Pavorotti
Or because I'm such a hottie
I like her for her
Not because she's fat like Cindy Crawford
She has got so much to offer
Why does she waste all her time with me
There must be something there that I don't see
She likes me for me
Not because I'm tough like Dirty Harry
Maker her laugh just like Jim Carrey
Unlike the Cable Guy
But what she sees Is that I can't live without her
And I'm so glad I found her once again
Found her once again Once again
Yeah I'm so glad I found her once again

    General CommentI just bought the All Acoustic cd on itunes from BUOS, and Eliot says in the interview that he drove to meet a girl that he was talking to, and he was fascinated that she did not tell her friends that he was a musician and in a band. On the way home he just kept rotating the lines "She likes me for me" in his head and then he wrote this song.

    General CommentGreat pickmeup song. My favorite line is probably the one that has the least to do with the theme of the song.

    "The things that we're afraid of are gonna show us what we're made of in the end."

    Just a great line about what really defines a person. With that - Goodbye.

    My InterpretationThis song makes about as much sense as a parachute with holes in it. He talk's about not having a lot of money, BUT HE HAS A BIG SCREEN TV AND A COLLECTION OF DVDS. Oh yeah, and he might not have a lot of money, but he can afford to send this girl anywhere around the world. Last time I checked plane tickets to Japan are like $1,800 or something like that I'm not a travel agent. Plus the dude is totally full of himself, seriously. He calls himself a hottie and pretends to be hard 'like dirty harry'. Last time I check Dirty Harry didn't sing soprano nancy boy. Can anyone say 'one hit wonder'? My job here is done.

    General Commentthe melody is so catchy! It's kinda funny when you listen to the song cause the singer goes: "flayed" with fargo. Who cares, it's still a nice song.
