This came to mind when I was watching a movie and said to myself, ‘she just doesn’t get it.’

She Just Doesn’t Get Me
_____________________Verse/Chorus
Verse1:
I check my watch it’s eight o’clock
As she opens her front door
The time is right for our date
She glares at me and stomps the floor
And she tells me that I’m late
She coulda said she changed the time before

Pre-Chorus:
She more than gorgeous and she’s polite
And all the guys only wish they might
But back off dudes, she belongs to me
Though there’s much in me she doesn’t see

Chorus:
And finally it hits me
She just doesn’t get me
No matter how I try
She keeps asking why
No matter what I say
She shakes her head and walks away
No matter what I do
Shes says the problem lies with you
And finally it hits me
She just doesn’t get me

Verse 2:
We meet at lunch, I got a hunch
She’s there for more than just food
Think she gonna stir the pot
And she says last night I was rude
Try to talk but she’s too hot
No matter what I say I know I’m screwed

Chorus:
And finally it hits me
She just doesn’t get me
No matter how I try
She keeps asking why
No matter what I say
She shakes her head and walks away
No matter what I do
Shes says the problem lies with you
And finally it hits me
She just doesn’t get me

Verse 3:
Some years have past, I hope at last
She sees me unlike before
But she needles me and pokes
And tells me I don’t know the score
Though I think she’s blowing smoke
But does she understand me anymore

Chorus:
And finally it hits me
She just doesn’t get me
No matter how I try
She keeps asking why
No matter what I say
She shakes her head and walks away
No matter what I do
Shes says the problem lies with you
And finally it hits me
She just doesn’t get me

Coda:
Although I love her with all my heart
I think it’s best we just depart
‘Cause more and more we disagree
And she just doesn’t get me
No, she just doesn’t get me
She just doesn’t get me at all
