Verse 1:
We were so drunk last night,
We had that stupid fight,
You called me a useless selfish prick,
So I'm in a fix right now,
And we'll measure the truth somehow,
Love is a funny thing to me,

Pre-Chorus 1:
Then you stormed out and grabbed your coat,
While slamming shut the door,
A ruthless move so cold you left your keys inside the door Oh...

Chorus:
Can Nothing i do make you happy anymore,
Nothin' i say put a smile onto your face,
Can nothing i say bring us back together,
Nothing i do put a smile onto your face.

(Spoken) Well Okay..

Verse 2:
Next day i called you back,
And you called me a stupid twat,
And then you were crying on the phone,
You sounded so upset, you said,
I wasn't the man you'd met
3 years and 7 months ago

Pre-Chorus 2:
I pleaded with her take me back,
I'll change my sorry ways
So tell me why mysteriously im annoyed instead of shamed
Ohhh

Chorus:
Can Nothing i do make you happy anymore,
Can nothin' i say put a smile onto your face
Nothing i do bring us back together
Nothing i say put a smile onto your face

Bridge:
MMmmmm, Yeahhh

Im pondering it all after that call
I think it is clear
I am here, you're from another stratosphere
Oh, now all the things she said they went around my head
And come out my ear,
And not before long,
This stubborn soul thinks he's done no wrong.

Instrumental

Pre Chorus 3:
As when the questions flutter 'round my head like butterflies,
My head spins at reflecting on another love's demise, Ohhhh

Chorus:
Can Nothing i do make you happy anymore,
Nothin' i say put a smile onto your face
Can nothing i do bring us back together
Nothing i say put a smile onto your face, Ohhh


(Spoken) All together now... ah 1,2,3...

*Whistles in tune to the chorus* -- until fade out
