Songs My Wife's Husband Listens To: "My Girl" by Madness

Fellas (and ladies), I discovered a great song this weekend: "My Girl" by the British band, Madness, (the same group who sang "Our House"). This song was originally released in 1979 (so I'm only 34 years late on this one) but it really struck a chord with me, especially the lyrics (which I copied below for your reading pleasure).

Now I MUST state for the record that I love my wife very, very much and feel as if she is a very patient and understanding woman, but still wanted to dedicate this jawn to all the fellas out there whose ladies be drawlin' on the reg.



My girl's mad at me
I didn't wanna see the film tonight
I found it hard to say
She thought I'd had enough of her

Why can't she see
She's lovely to me?
But I like to stay in
And watch TV on my own
Every now and then

My girl's mad at me
Been on the telephone for an hour
We hardly said a word
I tried and tried but I could not be heard

Why can't I explain?
Why do I feel this pain?
'Cause everything I say
She doesn't understand
She doesn't realise
She takes it all the wrong way

My girl's mad at me
We argued just the other night
I thought we'd got it straight
We talked and talked until it was light

I thought we'd agreed
I thought we'd talked it out
Now when I try to speak
She says that I don't care
She says I'm unaware

And now she says I'm weak


Calm down ladies. Tracey Ullman retaliated for all of you, recording a cover called "My Guy" in 1984. Watch and listen to that jawn here
