TELL ME YOU'RE SORRY

TELL ME YOU'RE SORRY


i asked my teacher for a piece of advice
i guess i needed her to treat me nice
but all she told me was to sit down and wait
i can't stand up until september 8

she upset me
i'm gonna quit school
she upset me
i'm gonna quit school


unless you really wanna be on my list
tell me you're sorry
unless you really wanna be at my fist
tell me you're sorry

i asked my daddy for a new set of drums
my band was booked in auditoriums
but all he said to me was "vacuum the pool"
sometimes i feel just like a total fool

i'm here at fmu right now
this ain't no tape recording
my little sister works the controls
while i do the news report

i asked my boss if i could take off a week
to take my baby down to martinique
but all he told me was i needed to work
sometimes i feel just like a total jerk

i'm upset now
i'm gonna walk out
here i go now
i'm gonna leave home

unless you really wanna be on my list
tell me you're sorry
unless you really wanna be at my fist
tell me you're sorry

i asked my therapist to clear up for me
all these folks in my biography
but all my therapist was able to do
was take me over here to meet with you

that's life!
