How's it going, how you doing,
Are you feeling good tonight?
Do you mind if I ask questions
Do you think it'd be alright?

Did she tell you we went out once?
Did she say she loved me too?
Did she tell you that I laughed
when I found out she was with you?

Does she make you buy her jewelry?
Does she make you speak in tongues?
Does she tell you about her brother
who's got liquid in his lungs?

Does she buy you clothes for christmas?
Does she teach you to make sense?
Does she let you read her poems
'bout the art of self-defense?

Have you ever seen her cry
or heard her listen to my songs?
Does she ask you to apologize
when you've done nothing wrong?

Does she talk about me?
Does she talk about me?
Does she talk about me?
Does she talk about me?

    I think this song is pretty straightforward and doesn't need a microscope to figure out, it's about a guy having an imaginary conversation with his ex-girlfriends new boyfriend. There is some nuance here, however, wherein the original tone is one of scorn and ridicule as most of the song is about the speaker feeling "above" this guy, but then in the very end the speaker keeps repeating "does she talk about me" possibly because this new guy and/or the conversation the speaker imagines with him - is in actuality the only connection to the ex. You wonder if the speaker ended it for if she dumped him. I imagine the speaker screwed it up by not appreciating her, and she ended it. So he won't admit it, but he regrets losing her. It seems autobiographical because of the line "or heard her listen to my songs." Even though this song has a much slower tempo or at least heavier vibe than the song that preceded it on the album (Visiting the Zoo, a great track with a similar "Ex-girlfriend" vibe) and the two kickass songs after it, "Scenario" and "Anything Anything", I always dug it. Come to think about it, the "emotional damage from ex girlfriend" theme seems to run through many songs on this album. Great stuff though. Saw them live in 1990 and 1993, and again in 2003. Great group, thoughtful music and lyrics.
