I remember quite well the first time I took you home
We were so young I didn't think much of you
Sure you were cute and full of tricks
And a whole lot brighter than a guinea pig
But I didn't think much of you back then

And I think you loved me first 'cause it sure took me a while
To figure out that you were kinda special
But now you're old and full of ticks
And you yell at everybody just for kicks
And I wish that you would just shut up

Why do you scream at me? Why do you scream?
I don't know why you have to do that
'Cause things don't seem all that bad to me
Oh I'm begging you please, baby please don't scream

Do you remember that old cat who beat you up so bad
I thought You wouldn't make it I almost couldn't take it
But now you're mean and paranoid
There's not a piece of this house that you haven't destroyed
And I wish that you would just shut up

Why do you scream at me? Why do you scream?
I don't know why you have to do that
'Cause things don't seem all that bad to me
Oh I'm begging you please, baby please don't scream
Oh I'm begging you please, baby please don't scream

You know I've loved a lot of men and moved far away from them
And I hate to say it but you're my oldest friend
And I'm glad you're around
'Cause you still know how to make my favorite sound
But then I wish that you would just shut up

Why do you scream at me? Why do you scream?
I don't know why you have to do that
'Cause things don't seem all that bad to me
Oh I'm begging you please, baby please don't scream
