Weird Al Yankovic — Melanie lyrics

[Intro]
Melanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Melanie
Why won't you go out with me

[Verse 1]
She lived across the street on the fifteenth floor of the Gilmore building
I saw her in the shower reaching for some soap
I knew she had to be the girl for me
And to think I probably never would have found her
If I hadn't bought that telescope

[Chorus]
Oh, Melanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Melanie
Why won't you go out with me

[Verse 2]
I just can't understand it
Why won't you return my phone calls
Are you still mad I gave a Mohawk to your cat
If you'd just say the word
I'm certain that our love would last forever and ever
Or are you too dumb to realize that

[Chorus]
Melanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Melanie
Why won't you go out with me
How can you ignore me when you know that I can't live without you
I have to go through your garbage just to learn more about you

[Bridge]
Melanie, ooh
Oh sweet Melanie
Why won't you go out with me

[Verse 3]
You weren't impressed when I tattooed your name across my forehead
You wouldn't listen when I promised to be true
I couldn't stand it so I jumped out from the sixteenth story window
Right above you
Now I may be dead but I still love you

[Chorus]
Melanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Melanie
Why won't you go out with me

Melanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Melanie
Why won't you go out with me

I'm singin' Melanie
What can the problem be
Sweet, sweet Melanie
Why won't you go out with me

[Outro]
I'm singin' Melanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Melanie
Why won't you go out with me

I'm singin' Melanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Melanie
Why won't you go out with me
