WHAT PART OF NO DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?
Met you in a bar and we chatted for a little while
Just a little small talk but I really didn’t like your style
I smiled to be polite before I turned and
walked the other way
But you thought it meant I dug you
Now you just won’t go away
I tried to tell you gently cause I didn’t wanna be so cruel
But you just don’t seem to get now
you really haven’t got a clue
I wanna say this once so just look me straight in the eye
So long, good luck, adios, read my lips, goodbye
Is it the N? Is it the O? Is it the way I slam the door?
Or when you ask me for a date
and I just turn and walk away?
Or when you hear the phone slam?
Tell me what part of No don’t you understand?
Ask you mamma and your papa
your sister and your brother too
Maybe they’ll explain it
in a way I can’t seem to do
It’s just a little word with a simple meaning all its own
And the dictionary says it mesns
go away and leave me alone
