Excuse Me Mr.
No Doubt Lyrics


I'm like a beggar with no luck
I'm holding signs up on your street corner stops
Like most you try not to see me
Stare straight ahead, ignore the responsibility

Excuse me (excuse me, mister)
Well, I've been waiting in line
And I'd like to buy some of your time
I'm very anxious, eager, willing
What's your billing? (Anxious, eager, willing)

So please excuse me, mister
You've got things all wrong
You make it feel like a crime
So don't confuse me, mister
I've known you too long
All I need is a little of your time

Oh
For most, love comes for free
They don't pay the high cost of mental custody
I'll pay bail for a guarantee
Make space for me in the time yet to be

Excuse me (excuse me, mister)
Well, I've been waiting in line
And I'd like to buy some of your time
I've been saving up my life
What's your price? (Saving up my life)

So please excuse me, mister
You've got things all wrong
You make it feel like a crime
So don't confuse me, mister
I've known you for too long, boy
All I need is a little of your time

What should I do? I'm about to crack
And there's a force that comes over me
It's almost as if I'm tied to the tracks
I'm waiting for him to rescue me
The funny thing is, he's not going to come
He's not going to find me
This is a matter of a fact, the desire you lack
This is the way I guess it has to be

A Little of your time
I need a little of your time
Please, a little of your time, yeah

So please excuse me, mister
You've got things all wrong
You make it feel like a crime
So don't confuse me, mister
I've known you for too long boy
All I need is a little of your time

Ooh, I'm in line to buy time
I'm in line to buy time
I'm in line to
I'm in line to
Excuse me
Well, I've been waiting in line
Excuse me
Excuse me, mister

Do people understand how amazing and progressive this band was? This was a band with a girl front man who wrote awesome songs about feminist issues that were good enough to make anyone listen. The music by itself is amazing, Gwen's lyrics are a perfect compliment and the videos explain the lyrics perfectly. She's a woman at the forefront of the woman's lib movement who calls attention to the fact that she's treated better then her band mates. This is the example you give your daughter. Be Gwen. Be an absolute bad ass who rocks but don't for a moment think that being a woman in a man's game is nothing. Realize who you are and the world around you. Realize you're being promoted because your sexy and don't hit people over the head with it. You're sexy and exploited because you are but that doesn't make you scared of being sexy. No Doubt paved the way for so much music. It's just not fair that they understood who they where while they changed everything

@IAMTHENATEHAWK jesus shut up. Why are you here

Julian Bug

Yes and I love them like I do 311 and the Expendables and pepper and slightly Stoopid and sublime ska punk or reggae rock is that mother fucking shit

Terri Langley

You not heard of blondie then..?

Jimbo Thompson

Actually this sounds like they were trying to copy the vandals

Minerva Minavera

@littlesometin it’s being confident in your looks but knowing record labels are gonna abuse that and over sexualize her even more. it’s the ugly part of fame and we know it but it doesn’t make it ok or less traumatic for the artist.

Really not hard to understand

Gwen is just an awesome lady. She is easily one of the best woman frontmen of all time

Rocksteady Rein

lolI love her too, but she is no comparison to Ann Wilson of HEART. Unless you want to put them into two separate categories, like POP and ROCK, Gwen is pop and Ann is rock.

@Brenda White I'm not the arbiter here, but Lita is awesome, however not in the same class as previous ladies mentioned imo.
