Don't You
Simple Minds Lyrics


Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh, woah

Won't you come see about me?
I'll be alone, dancing, you know it, baby

Tell me your troubles and doubts
Giving everything inside and out and
Love's strange, so real in the dark
Think of the tender things that we were working on

Slow change may pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart, baby

Don't you, forget about me
Don't, don't, don't, don't
Don't you, forget about me

Will you stand above me?
Look my way, never love me
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down

Will you recognize me?
Call my name or walk on by
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh, woah

Don't you try and pretend
It's my feeling we'll win in the end
I won't harm you or touch your defenses
Vanity and security, ah

Don't you forget about me
I'll be alone, dancing, you know it, baby
Going to take you apart
I'll put us back together at heart, baby

Don't you, forget about me
Don't, don't, don't, don't
Don't you, forget about me

As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
When you walk away

Or will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?
Come on, call my name
Will you call my name?

I say
La, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
When you walk on by
And you call my name
When you walk on by

Dear Mr Vernon

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong.
But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are . You see us as you want to see us in the simplest terms, in most convenient definitions. But we found out each one of us is a brain
And an athlete
And a basket case
And a princess
And a criminal
Does that answer your question?
Sincerely yours,
The Breakfast club

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh-ooh, ooh-woh

Won't you come see about me?
I'll be alone, dancing, you know it, baby
Tell me your troubles and doubts
Give them everything, inside and out and

Love's strange, so real in the dark
Think of the tender things that we were working on
Slow change may pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart, baby

Don't you forget about me
Don't, don't, don't, don't
Don't you forget about me

Will you stand above me?
Look my way? Never love me?
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down

Will you recognize me?
Call my name or walk on by?
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh-ooh, ooh-woh

Don't you try and pretend
It's my feeling we'll win in the end, I won't
Harm you or touch your defenses
Vanity, insecurity uh-uh!

Don't you forget about me
I'll be alone, dancing, you know it, baby
Going to take you apart
I'll put us back together at heart, baby

Don't you forget about me
Don't, don't, don't, don't
Don't you forget about me

As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
And you walk away
Or will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?

Come on, call my name
Will you call my name?
I say:

Ooh la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

When you walk on by
And you call my name

"Dear Mr. Vernon. We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did was wrong, but we think you’re crazy to make us to write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us: in the simplest terms, the most convenient definitions. You see us as a Brain, an Athlete, a Basketcase, Princess, and a Criminal. Correct? That’s the way we saw each other at 7 o’clock this morning. We were brainwashed."

-The Breakfast Club, 1985

Two great pieces of media, both containing the same song!

I was lucky enough to be 15 years old in the winter of 1985, in the 8th grade when I went and saw this movie with my girl friend. Before the movie started, I'd just wasted about $10 at the arcade trying to beat Mr Sandman on Punch-Out!! to no avail, so needless to say we didn't get any snacks at the show.  Very rarely has a movie and a song defined the teen generation of the time so perfectly like this did back in the mid 1980s.  Although I didn't know it then, it was a great time to be alive.

Thanks for sharing lol

You’ve taken me right back to an experience which has reopened the love, fear, insecurities and despair of never being able to get past Bald Bull. Mr Sandman? He was mythical.

@MerkinMuffly Well, I've always said that radio and cassette-tapes were our internet back then. I was age 14 in 1980. We all had illegal FM radio transmitters at home back in the day, here in NL, Europe anyways, by which we communicated out in the open air. In a way that was our 'chat' and 'social media', late at night sharing music, ideas, thoughts. Have you seen "Pump up the volume" ? It was very much like that, for me anyway. By the way, there's still good 80s music being made today; https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLGc0tZZeugwM7otNXNbM0A3hpgKPklWUF

The one thing that really sucked about growing up in the 80's was not realizing how awesome they were when you were there. To quote Andy Bernard from "The Office" ... “I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them.”
