"Just Go Away" as written by and Deborah Harry....
O Don't ya know
Don't want to see you any more
Put up or shut up
You spell, you read
D O O are
You got a big mouth and I'm happy to see
Your foot is firmly entrenched where a molar should be
If you talk much louder you could get an award
From the federal communications board

Don't be cruel
Be a thing-sweet thing as a rule
Don't be sad
I left you in the street, you're pre-fab
I had to get away

Don't go away sad
Don't go pre-fab
Don't go be bad
Don't go away mad
Just go away (go away)

O Don't ya know
Don't want to see you here no more
Pack it and move it
You spell, you read O you T out

Don't be bad
A mad hatter's beret
Sometimes you look like you just mad an escape
Don't be mad
Or lose your medicaid cool
Of course cool rhymes with fool

Don't go be bad
Cause you been had
Don't go be sad
Don't go away mad
Just go away (go away)

O Don't ya know
Don't want to see ya curse and pout
Pack it and move it
Ya spell, ya read O you T out

You got a big mouth and I'm happy to see
Your foot is firmly entrenched where a molar should be
Don't be mad or lose your medicaid cool
Of course cool rhymes with fool

Don't go pre-fab
Cause you been had
Don't go be sad
Don't go away mad
Just go away (go away)

Don't go pre-fab
Cause you been had
Don't go be sad
Don't go away mad
Just go away (go away)
Go away and stay away

    General CommentI think the meaning of the song is plain, but there are three lyrics that puzzle me. What does Deborah Harry mean by "Don't go pre-fab"? "Pre-fab" usually refers to a house or a novel that's pre-assembled, but I never heard it used of a person before. What does she mean by "a mad hatter's beret"? The Mad Hatter doesn't wear a beret; he wears an extra tall top hat with a large brim. And why is "cool" described as "Medicaid cool"? Medicaid is an entitlement for the retired and disabled. Everything else is clearly about a woman telling a man that it's over and she doesn't want any drama about it.

    General CommentThe "you spell you read" parts are spelled strangely. I guess the point is: D.O.O.R. and O.U.T.

    And "Medicaid cool" make sense when she mentions that "cool rhimes with fool"

    General CommentI love this song. Very underrated. Somehow the backing vocals in the chorus remind me of Muppet Show. Don't know why :-).
