"I Want You To Want Me" as written by and Mike Burkett....
Jenny, so many times I tried to get away
But you kept following me all over town
I'll display it, there's no way to say it
I don't just want you,

I just don't want you around,
I don't want you around,
You follow me around
It's really bringing me down
I don't want you around

When it was time to go I had nothing to say
Don't you look at me,
Don't you look at me that way
"I love you!" Oh, really? Please go away

What gave you the idea?
Get it out of your head
You follow us around
We're not the Grateful Dead

I wanted to be friends but you wanted more
So, like I told you before
I don't want you around

    General CommentNOFX did it, Letters to Cleo did it (SUCKED HARD, NOT A GOOD COVER AT ALL), and Propagandi also did it. The song, like I against I said was origianally done by cheap trick, thats the best verson yet in my opinion.
