As much as Scouting for Girls annoy the hell out of me, that is such a catchy tune...

I wish Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend" was written about me... I have a rather (un)healthy obsession with her!!

You may interpret that as you wish. You lot are so suspicious!

I was rather hoping to emphasise the lines 'your beauty is beyond compare.... eyes of emerald green' (although mine are rather more pond like).

You are supposed to pick the songs that you wish were written about you. Come on SYB, I'm sure you can think of something terribly clever, once you have stopped that swimming.

Default Re: What song do you wish was written about you?

can't find a video of it...another Van song...

Ive been searching a long time
For someone exactly like you
Ive been travelling all around the world
Waiting for you to come through.
Someone like you makes it
All worth while
Someone like you keeps
Me satisfied. someone exactly
Like you.

Ive been travellin a hard road
Lookin for someone exactly like you
Ive been carryin my heavy load
Waiting for the light to come
Shining through.
Someone like you makes it
All worth while
Someone like you keeps
Me satisfied. someone exactly
Like you.

Ive been doin some soul searching
To find out where youre at
Ive been up and down the highway
In all kinds of foreign lands
Someone like you... etc.

Ive been all around the world
Marching to the beat of a different
Drum.
But just lately I have
Realised
The best is yet to come.
Someone like you... etc.

Now how can you say you don't like poetry if you listen to Van, Ms Shallow Pants?
One of my faves (no you tube, it's kinda rare)....

Contemplation Rose

Puerto Rican Nursery Rhymes
Angels in the snow and thyme
And I'm keeping my mind on that rose

In a church in Spanish Harlem

Got Watchtowers and Awakes for free
In the laundromat for you and me
But you can't take me down that way
As I'm not sinking

And if we go down one time
Next times not gonna be the last time
And I'm contemplating that rose
In a church in Spanish Harlem
Didn't I bring you precious gifts
Came to kiss you on the lips
Didn't even appear
To beg your pardon

To lay out in the morning sun
Feel the cool breeze and the one
Right there in, in my garden
Puerto Rican Nursery Rhymes
And angels, and angels, and the snow and thyme
But I'm keeping my mind on that rose
In a church in Spanish Harlem

Yeah, and if we go, if we go down one time
The next time will not be the last time, and I'm
Keeping my mind on that, contemplating that rose
Up in a church in Spanish Harlem

And if we go down one time, you know
The next time it won't be the last time
And I'm contemplating that rose
In a church in Spanish Harlem

And I'm contemplating that rose
In a church in Spanish Harlem
And I'm contemplating, and I'm contemplating that rose
In a church in Spanish Harlem
And I'm contemplating that rose
In a church in Spanish Harlem
And I'm contemplating that rose
In a church, in a church in Spanish Harlem
