"I Like You" as written by Martin James Boorer and Steven Patrick Morrissey....
Something in you caused me to
Take a new tact with you
You were going through something
I had just about scraped through
Why do you think I let you get away
With the things you say to me?

Could it be I like you?
It's so shameful of me - I like you

No one I ever knew
Or have spoken to resembles you
This is good or bad
All depending on my general mood
Why do you think I let you get away
With all the things you say to me?

Could it be I like you?
It's so shameful of me - I like you

Magistrates who spend their lives
Hiding their mistakes
They look at you and I
And envy makes them cry
Envy makes them cry

Forces of containment
They shove their fat faces into mine
You and I just smile
Because we're thinking the same line
Why do you think I let you get away
With all the things you say to me?

Could it be I like you?
It's so shameful of me - I like you

You're not right in the head
And nor am I, and this is why
You're not right in the head,
And nor am I, and this is why

This is why I like you, I like you, I like you
This is why I like you, I like you, I like you
Because you're not right in the head,
And nor am I, and this is why
You're not right in the head,
And nor am I, and this is why
This is why I like you, I like you, I like you...

    General CommentI'm confused: this is a song from his new album but these lyrics were posted in 2002. How's that possible?

    General Commentbecause the songs were written a long time before the new album came out. He was still performing live without having a record deal...

    General CommentYes, it took him 7 years to find a new label to release material off.

    General Commenti think the song's basically about two folks, more than likely close friends who sort of joke with and about each other, and who know each other so well that they're always "thinking the same line." Moz is finally ready to admit his feelings. It's really a nice song.

    General CommentI think it's a perfect friendship song too -- I picture him singing this to Linder or Nancy Sinatra or another one of his favorite women friends

    General Commentfantastic 'like' song. I do not think it is a love song. But it is fantastic. I love it at high volumes. His voice control is sublime. I like the bit about "you're not right in the head, this is why I like you"/"and nor am I"

    General CommentI agree with shroom. It is the perfect like song.
    "No one I ever knew or have spoken to resembles you
    This is good and bad all depending on my general view" I thought it was mood? Anyways, that line is one of my favorite by Morrissey. I think it's something everyone can relate to when liking someone.

    General CommentThey look at you and I and envy makes them cry
    Envy makes them cry

    Oh Moz, you know the story of my life and I've never even told you.
