Stan Ridgway – They Don't Want Me lyrics

They don't want me
They used to want me
But they don't want me
I used to belong
Now I don't belong
It's not the same song
We used to play games
We used to trade names
But we don't play games
They don't want me
They used to want me
But they don't want me

Now I'm all alone
No one left to help chip the stone
And now this awful weed begins to grow
'cause they don't want me

Repeat until fade:
They don't want me
(we don't want you)
They used to want me
Not anymore
