[Lyrics], my version of them, probably not perfect. (Verse): Rude Girl don't make me cry. Why do you do the things you do when you pass me by? Is there a reason why you find it funny to bring tears to my eyes. I meet you at the club. I try to tell you that I think I'm in love. You walked away from me. The rest of the night well I do not see you at all. (Break) (Verse): While the Exceptions played, I stayed and you wondered why I was afraid. Because I'm next to you, I'll tell you the truth, and nothing but. I fucked it up once again. You walked away with another man. What's a Rude Boy to do when hecan't get, when he can't get, when he can't get next to you? (Break): I can't get next to you, whoa no. (Verse): Rude Girl don't make me sad. I think you do the things you do just to make me mad. I think that I have been had. At least I know now that love is bad. Say you're the queen of ska. I don't think you really know who you are. You are the one that I want. When push comes to shove, that's what I say. (End): That's what I say. . . . RUDE - GIRL! That's it! I hope the chords sound right to you, and that you will buy the CD if you don't already have it. E-mail me with any questions, comments, etc. Luke
