WHAT DO U LIKE
Tommy Richman Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(Yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah)

And tell me what do you like?
I like many things, I like many things
I got amenities, got amenities
So pick out what you like on the television screen
Why you act like that? ('Creen)
Man, you goin' out sad like that ('creen)
You're so ungrateful, lately ('creen)
You're so ungrateful, lately (left right, left right)
You're so ungrateful, lately

You've gone outside again since last week
Baby, I don't know 'bout by then, don't ask me
I don't hang in that crowd now
And yet you still don't want to concentrate on yourself
Stick by me and I'll double your fucking wealth
You're going to hell right now, right now, right now, right now
Mama told me to tell the truth right now, so then I did
I know you got nothin' to say, so please pipe down
You're a fuckin' kid, I said, you don't wanna give me credit
Give me credit right now (now)
Credit right now (now)
I know you regret it in the future, baby
You ran away for miles just to come back and chase me
(Ooh) just for you to erase me
(Ooh) 'cause I'm not coming back on your side
(Ooh) after everything I've done, I'm glad I'm still alive

Tell me what do you like? (Like)
I like many things, I like many things (like)
I got amenities, got amenities
So pick out what you like on the television screen

('Creen, 'creen)
Why you act like that? ('Creen)




You cool when I'm sad like that ('creen)
Left right, left right
