Lyrics
Some people think they’re always right
Others are quiet and uptight
Others they seem so very nice nice nice nice (oh-ho)
Inside they might feel sad and wrong (oh no)
Twenty-nine different attributes
Only seven that you like
Twenty ways to see the world (oh-ho)
Twenty ways to start a fight (oh-ho)
Oh don’t don’t don’t get up
I can’t see the sunshine
I’ll be waiting for you, baby
Cause I’m through
Sit me down
Shut me up
I’ll calm down
And I’ll get along with you
Oh men don’t notice what they got
Women think of that a lot
One thousand ways to please your man (oh-ho)
Not even one requires a plan (I know)
Countless odd religions, too
It doesn’t matter which you choose (oh no)
One stubborn way to turn your back (oh-ho)
This I’ve tried and now refuse (oh-ho)
Oh don’t don’t don’t get up
I can’t see the sunshine
I’ll be waiting for you, baby
Cause I’m through
Sit me down
Shut me up
I’ll calm down
And I’ll get along with you
Alright
Shut me up
Shut me up
And I’ll get along with you
