He likes me
He likes me
Ooh... isn't that nice
He likes me
He likes me
Ooh... isn't that nice
That your brand new friend
He likes your old true friend
And isn't that the way
That it ought to be
That your brand new friend
He has good will to send
And you're so free
You're so free
You're so free
And I am history
He likes you
He says that he loves you
Ooh that's good to know
You like him
I hope you don't love him
And ooh you should know
That your old true friend
He doesn't like your brand new friend
Person to person it's not on purpose
But I take it personally
And soon your brand new friend
I hope I'll have a bon voyage to send
And you're so free
You're so free
You're so free
And I am history
You say you won't pick
And you won't make a choice
But I'm so mad I could spit
And I hear it in your voice
You said he likes me
He likes me
Ooh isn't that swell
He likes me
You said he likes me
Ohhh tell him hell...
O from me
A great big hello from me
Jesus always taught me
That I should love my enemy
Darling my heart's in pain
That's why my song's insane
And you're so free
And I am history
He likes me
But I don't like him
