"Don't Ask Me" as written by and Damian Kulash....
Quit acting so friendly.
Don't nod don't laugh all nicely.
Don't think you'll up-end me.
Don't sigh, don't sip your iced-tea.
And don't say, "It's been a while..."
And don't flash that stupid smile.

Don't ask me how I've been.

Don't think I've forgotten,
You never liked that necklace.
So cordial, so rotten...
Kiss, kiss, let's meet for breakfast.
Don't show up so on-time
And don't act like you're so kind

Don't ask me how I've been.

Don't sit there and play just
So frank, so straight, so candid,
So thoughtful, so gracious,
So sound, so even-handed.
Don't be so damn benign
And don't waste my fucking time.

Don't ask me how I've been.

Hey! Get over it!

    General Commentthis is my favorite ok go song. "Don't be so damn benign and don't waste my fucking time." that's the best part. i think its about overly nice ex's.... pretty straight forward.

    General Commenti love this song sooo much.
    it's obviously about a girl who is cheating on him & she always acts as if he doesn't know, he's too dumb to know. blahblahblah. etcetcetc.

    the end.
