What I Don’t Like

What I Don’t Like:
That icy cold look in your eyes
That distant tone of voice
Total silence, or the battle cries
I guess I can have my choice

What I Don’t Like:
You’re the cop and I’m the criminal
Another dishwashing mistake
Your contempt is not subliminal
All you do is bellyache

You don’t give a damn What I Don’t Like
You don’t give a damn, ‘bout what used to be
But I’ll tell you right now, tell you anyhow
I just don’t like the way you don’t like me

What I Don’t Like:
My jokes aren’t funny any more
Everything I say is wrong
You think love is just another chore
You used to love me all night long

Now you don’t give a damn What I Don’t Like
You don’t give a damn, ‘bout what used to be
But I’ll tell you right now, tell you anyhow
I just don’t like the way you don’t like me

You used to wake up laughing in the morning
Your eyes lit up just like a child, the sunlight in your hair
You saw me there and then you smiled, but now you just don't care

You don’t give a damn
You don’t give a damn, ‘bout what used to be
I’ll tell you right now, tell you anyhow
I just don’t like the way you don’t like me, any more
Did I do something wrong?
Guess I done you wrong
Just don’t like the way you don’t like me
