I got a word or two 'cause I don't understand
Somethin's on your mind, you don't have to shout
What's with me and you it's getting outta hand
Why can't we just talk and figure this thing out

I used to think that you and me would stay together
Why oh why can't we see eye to eye?
When I try to go you never let me leave

Why oh why can't we see eye to eye?
You make me come with you and then you give me grief
When I try to help you say it's your affair
If I shut my mouth you think that I don't care
It's not the way that you and me should treat each other

Why oh why can't we see eye to eye?
Why oh why can't we see eye to eye?

An' we never seem to agree
It's breakin' my heart we're grown' apart
But that ain't the way it should be be
(We're history!)
I'm walkin' away we got nothin' to say
It's such a drag we have this bad misunderstanding

Why oh why can't we see eye to eye?
Why oh why can't we see eye to eye?
