TITLE. LYRICS

Studio version

You're no good for me

Don't know what I'm doing, don't know where I'm going
Leading me to ruin, I should have traded you in
Yeah you think you're something but you're no good for me

Don't know if I care, don't know if I'm there
I just sit and stare, making love to thin air
Yeah you're being insulted but you're no good for me

Na na na na na na na, no good

I do lots of good, surprised at what you would
Don't call me no crud, I really think I'm good
Yeah you think you're something but you're no good for me

Try to call the tune, I'll probably go and rue it
I'll just get it groomed, all sorts of other clues
Yeah you're being insulted but you're no good for me

I get by the local peer group and their pressures
I can wash the dishes, my soups can taste delicious
Yeah you think you're something but you're no good for me

I've forgotten how you feel, to me you're looking real
Come on let's make a deal, think of where you live
Yeah you think you're something but you're no good for me

Na na na na na na na, no good

I've forgotten how you feel, to me you're looking real
Come on let's make a deal, think of what you need
Yeah you're being insulted but you're no good for me
