"Why Do You Want Him?" as written by and Billie Joe/kiffmeyer Armstrong....
I saw you standing alone
With a sad look on your face
You call him on the phone
Looks like he left you
Without a trace
Tears falling out of your eyes
He's living in a disguise
You've been feeling bad for so long
You wonder if it's right or wrong

Why do you want him?
Why do you want him?

Now many days have gone by
And you still just sit there and cry
You're feeling bad for yourself
His memory will always dwell
You're so obsessed with his love
That's why push came to shove
You've been feeling bad for so long
You wonder if it's right or wrong

Why do you want him?
Why do you want him?

Why do you want him?
Why do you want him?

You find a way out
To throw it all the way
But you can bet
You got something to say

Why do you want him?
Why do you want him?

Why do you want him?
Why do you want him?

    General CommentIt's about BJ's mum being upset over her b/f ("looks like he left you without a trace"). I heard he wrote it when he was 12 from several sources, but oh well. This albums great, more sappy than the other albums but thats what everyones first songs are about when they're young- girls and trouble with growing up! I got the remastered version from the lookout sight, its extra features are great, especially the videos and radio recordings of them playing live when they're not even 20. The sound quality is much better, but still not as clean and well done as the other albums, but hey, it's what they're playing that counts! :D
