What About Me?


Lyrics

"What About Me?"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Ever since that show came on, she’s wanted to be like them

Wearing five hundred dollar shoes, designer clothes and designer men

There’s always exciting things to do, like goin’out to the hottest clubs

Or stayin’ home with their toys, takin’ long baths in their tubs


Who wouldn’t want to see themselves on the side of a bus

But still I just won’t ever understand all the fuss


All she wants to do is watch Sex and the City

It’s such a pity, she’s got no time for her man

All she wants to do is watch some dude they call Big

I’d like to have that gig, cause she’s his biggest fan

Carrie gets to do this, Carrie gets to do that

And I never get to watch my own TV

What about me?


Ever since that show came on, she wants a best friend who’s gay

So she can call him up on the phone and tell him about her day

She wants to go to fashion shows and see the latest bikini’s 

She wants to drink cosmopolitans and dirty martini’s


Who wouldn’t want to see themselves on the side of a bus

But still I just won’t ever understand all the fuss


All she wants to do is watch Sex and the City

It’s such a pity, she’s got no time for her man

All she wants to do is watch some dude they call Big

I’d like to have that gig, cause she’s his biggest fan

Carrie gets to do this, Carrie gets to do that

And I never get to watch my own TV

What about me?


I know she needs a break from working eight to five

Doin’ our dishes and laundry, but I couldn’t help but wonder why?

So I watched a couple episodes, even got to see some boobies

Still don’t get it, never should’ve bought her those DVDs


All she wants to do is watch Sex and the City

It’s such a pity, she’s got no time for her man

All she wants to do is watch some dude they call Big

I’d like to have that gig, cause she’s his biggest fan

Carrie gets to do this, Carrie gets to do that

And I never get to watch my own TV

What about me?


What about Clint Eastwood, what about the hockey game?

I miss my remote control, I think my wife has gone insane

What about our relationship, I’m beggin’ you baby please

What about me?


What about me?

Brief Description

"The Sex And The City Song" should've been the alternate or parenthetical title for this one to peak interest.  It's about the TV show and later movie by the same name from the late 2000s I think.  Mostly true story about my frustration with my wife's obsession with this show.  Lyrically, I was concerned a couple words like "boobies" and "vibrators" were inappropriate for my style, but it was a risque show.  Musically, it's very simple, but worked surprisingly well.
