Lyrics I'VE TALKED TO YOUR MOTHER,
I'VE TALKED TO YOUR DAD,
THEY SAY THEY HAVE TRIED,
BUT ITS ALL IN VAIN,
I'VE BEGGED
AND I'VE PLEADED;
I'VE EVEN GOT MAD,
NOW WE MUST FACE IT,
YOU GIVE ME A PAIN.

HOW CAN I MISS YOU
WHEN YOU WON'T GO AWAY?
I'VE TRIED TELLING YOU
DAY AFTER DAY.
BUT YOU WON'T LISTEN,
YOU ALWAYS STAY
AND STAY,
HOW CAN I MISS YOU
WHEN YOU WON'T GO AWAY?

YOUR NEVER-ENDING PRESENCE
REALLY CRAMPS MY STYLE,
I DREAM
THAT IT WONT STAY
THE SAME.
AT FIRST
I WAS ATTRACTED,
BUT AFTER A WHILE,
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD
OF THE HARD-TO-GET
GAME?

HOW CAN I MISS YOU
WHEN YOU WON'T GO AWAY?
I'VE TRIED TELLING YOU
DAY AFTER DAY.
BUT YOU WON'T LISTEN,
YOU ALWAYS STAY
AND STAY,
HOW CAN I MISS YOU
WHEN YOU WON'T GO AWAY?

OUT OF THREE BILLION PEOPLE,
WHY MUST IT BE ME?
OH WHY,
OH WHY,
WON'T YOU CUT ME LOOSE?
JUST DO ME A FAVOR
AND LISTEN
TO MY PLEA!
I'M NOT
THE ONLY CHICKEN
ON THE ROOST.

HOW CAN I MISS YOU
WHEN YOU WON'T GO AWAY?
I'VE TRIED TELLING YOU
DAY AFTER DAY.
BUT YOU WON'T LISTEN,
YOU ALWAYS STAY
AND STAY,
HOW CAN I MISS YOU
WHEN YOU WON'T GO AWAY?
