"They Tell Me" as written by and Marshall Cat Power....
They tell me what they do,
I don't know what they're talking about,
They tell me what they do,
I don't understand what they're talking about,
They're talking about it.

I did not start this conversation,
I don't intend to keep talking about it,
They tell me about it.

Maybe if I pray to the lord above,
I'll get some sleep,
But the lord don't give a shit about me.

They tell me what they do,
How can I help it, how can I help it,
I sure can't shut them up.

    General CommentAnother one of my favorites,
    I'm reminded of this song every day in school
    in class,
    in the hallways,
    at lunch--

    I sure can't shut them up.
