Shaylee Shanel
Hot Mulligan Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Well, at work I see you
You don't see me
I bet your boyfriend stepped in before I came
I bet he parted with a kiss
Your tattoo ring switches digits
To middle, to index and back
I look sad in all black
Hurry with the darts
I got to get to the band, man

So come visit my place
We'll sit and talk about the stupid shit that your boyfriend says
'Cause I did love you, and I still do
And how my standard of girls is based completely around you
So come visit my place
We'll sit and talk about the stupid shit that your boyfriend says
'Cause I did love you, and I still do
And how my standard of girls is based completely around you

Oh, you live so far away
His contact just says "babe"
I hate these stupid cliches
I let myself up for a year or three
Ghosts of girlfriends haunted me to irrelevance
Crash to my head like a baseball
So I can concentrate on you
My first ever pitfall

So come visit my place
We'll sit and talk about the stupid shit that your boyfriend says
'Cause I did love you, and I still do
And how my standard of girls is based completely around you
So come visit my place
We'll sit and talk about the stupid shit that your boyfriend says
'Cause I did love you, and I still do
And how my standard of girls is based completely around you

Pour out your heart
Give up, restart
It's with the same guy I'm sure
But at least you might get better
I'm not enough to fill you up
Shay just loves someone who wants to see you smiling, happy
I'm not enough to fill you up
Shay just loves someone we know is just exactly like me

So come visit my place
We'll sit and talk about the stupid shit that your boyfriend says
'Cause I did love you, and I still do
And how my standard of girls is based completely around you
So come visit my place
We'll sit and talk about the stupid shit that your boyfriend says




'Cause I did love you, and I still do
And how my standard of girls is based completely around you

Line by Line Meaning

Well, at work I see you
I see you at work but you don't notice me


You don't see me
You don't notice me


I bet your boyfriend stepped in before I came
I think your boyfriend got in the picture before I had a chance


I bet he parted with a kiss
I imagine he kissed you goodbye


Your tattoo ring switches digits
Your tattoo ring moves from your middle finger to your index finger and back


To middle, to index and back
Your tattoo ring moves between your middle finger and index finger


I look sad in all black
I appear sad when I wear all black


Hurry with the darts
I need to leave soon to catch up with the band


I got to get to the band, man
I need to hurry to meet the band


Oh, you live so far away
You live too far away


His contact just says "babe"
His name for you is just a generic term of endearment


I hate these stupid cliches
I dislike these unoriginal phrases used as terms of endearment


I let myself up for a year or three
I have been putting myself down and obsessing over you for a year or three


Ghosts of girlfriends haunted me to irrelevance
Memories of past girlfriends have made me feel irrelevant


Crash to my head like a baseball
The memories come back to me suddenly and intensely


So I can concentrate on you
I need to focus on you


My first ever pitfall
I have fallen for you harder than anyone else before


Pour out your heart
Tell me everything you feel


Give up, restart
Move on and start anew


It's with the same guy I'm sure
You're still with the same guy, I assume


But at least you might get better
Maybe things will improve for you


I'm not enough to fill you up
I'm not the one who can make you happy


Shay just loves someone who wants to see you smiling, happy
Shay just wants to see you happy with someone who appreciates you


Shay just loves someone we know is just exactly like me
Shay wants someone who is just like me because he thinks I'm the best for you


We'll sit and talk about the stupid shit that your boyfriend says
We'll discuss the silly things your boyfriend says


'Cause I did love you, and I still do
I admit that I loved you and still do


And how my standard of girls is based completely around you
My preference for girls is entirely based on you

@atotalandincompletetroll4480

This song's chorus (or whatever it is)
"I did
love you
and I
still do" (and all the similar parts)
And the sound all the tik tok "bad boys" use
"Is that
your hand
on my
girlfriend?"
Are the same beat for beat. I think of it every single time I hear his song
