Quit acting so friendly.
Don't nod don't laugh all nicely.
Don't think you'll up-end me.
Don't sigh, don't sip your iced-tea.
And don't say, "It's been a while..."
And don't flash that stupid smile.

Don't a-a-ask me
Don't a-a-ask me
Don't a-a-ask me
Ask me, ask me how I've been.

Don't think I've forgotten,
You never liked that necklace.
So cordial, so rotten...
Kiss, kiss, let's meet for breakfast.
Don't show up so on-time
And don't act like you're so kind

Don't a-a-ask me
Don't a-a-ask me
Don't a-a-ask me
Ask me, ask me how I've been.

So don't sit there and play just
So frank, so straight, so candid,
So thoughtful, so gracious,
So sound, so even-handed.
Don't be so damn benign
And don't waste my fucking time.

Don't a-a-ask me
Don't a-a-ask me
Don't a-a-ask me
Ask me, ask me how I've been.

Don't a-a-ask me(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Don't a-a-ask me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Don't a-a-ask me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Don't a-a-ask me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)

Don't, don't, don't a-a-ask me
Don't, don't, don't a-a-ask me
Don't, don't, don't a-a-ask me
Don't, don't, don't a-a-ask me

Don't a-a-ask me
Don't a-a-ask me
Don't a-a-ask me
Ask me, ask me how I've been.
