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 out
So I can 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

Men don't notice what they got
Women think of that a lot
One thousand ways to please your man (oh-ho)
And neither one requires a plan (I know)

And countless dire religions, too
It doesn't matter which to choose (oh no)
One stubborn way to turn your back (oh-ho)
I guess I've tried and I refuse (oh-ho)

Oh don't don't don't get out
So I can 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
