Goo Goo Dolls - Yeah, I Like You Lyrics

I met the queen of generation fame
I said I'm sorry, I don't know your name
And she stared at me, and she said
"Hey, man, could you tell me your name?"
I said, "You wouldn't know it anyway
But I like you"

You're so conceited but you're insecure
You're always busy but you look so bored
So tell me
What do you do?
Well, the world won't easily forget you
And she smiled and said, "yes, I think that's true"

Turn my life into a hurricane
Kill the paranoia in my brain
'Cause I want what you got and you got what I want
And I like you
I don't need another lonely weekend
Just give me thrills so the truth don't creep in
It's wrong
Yeah, it's wrong
But I like you

You're as corrupt as any TV preacher
I don't believe it but I'm falling deeper
Baby, sad but true
'Cause it's hard to define when you cross that line
So what's on your mind?
Yeah, I like you

You know you're shallow, it's your greatest feature
I love your stupid friends, they look like creatures
Baby, what's wrong with you?
'Cause you talk like a dream but you're not what you seem
And I don't care

Turn my life into a hurricane
You kill the paranoia in my brain
'Cause I want what you got and you got what I want
And I like you
I don't need another lonely weekend
Just give me thrills so the truth don't creep in
It's wrong
Yeah, all wrong
But I like you

Yeah, I like you, mmh

And we all want what we can't have
Yeah, we all want more to be so adored
We all want more 'cause we're all just whores

Turn my life into a hurricane
You kill the paranoia in my brain
'Cause I want what you got and you got what I want
And I like you (like you, like you, like you)
I don't need another lonely weekend
Just give me thrills so the truth don't creep in
It's wrong
Yeah, I'm wrong
But I like you

  36. Floydandsome

    It does have some 90s - 00s charisma that the goo used to have!

  37. ElosWrld

    They’ve still got it💕

  38. Il Prof

    I've missed you so much, guys! This is awesome

  39. Sam Burke

    Grew up on these guys and I’m only 23. Absolute kings of music, most underrated band of all time

  40. Ryan Hawley

    Dizzy up the girl was the beginning of the end, sure gutterflower was ok but they peaked with superstar car wash and boy named goo, after 93 they became a different band

  41. P

    @Unrepentant Offender I think you're too slow to understand. In the MID 90s, the Goos were a one hit wonder with "Name" as their only hit. At that time, they were called "one hit wonders". Most people, and probably the GGD themselves thought they peaked. They released many singles around that time that were not hits. For around 3 years, that's what we thought....then "Iris" became a hit in the LATE 90s, they started churning hits after hits and became a household name.
    All i'm saying is that as a hardcore GGD fan in the mid 90s, BEFORE IRIS, I never thought that they would become bigger and never thought that I would still be listening to them to this day. Because the vast majority of artists that don't have a hit in 3 years usually never become public again.
    Perhaps you need to read better, back up, and not resort to insulting people.

  42. Unrepentant Offender

    @P "one hit wonder"?
    Black Balloon
    Here is Gone
    Better Days
    (among many others)
    Just because you are ignorant of their hita does not make them a one hit wonder

  43. şá ğàŘ

    What underrated ? Are you kidding me ?
    Those who haven't heard are isolated infact

  44. Scarlett Phoenix

    Been a major fan since regularly hanging out at The Continental in Buffalo in the 80s. Their music is the soundtrack of my life. They bring joy and happiness into the world. What could be better? 😊

  45. Hntr -j

    Nothing but positivity for this. Their best “first” single from a new record for a long time. The video is great as well! Love you boys

  46. Hntr -j

    @G Pap it’s fun. It’s sarcastic. We live in a world where youths worship influencers and it’s now the most desirable profession - I just think the video is playfully poking fun at that, and I rate it. It’s at least interesting!

  47. G Pap

    Cant see what it is that you like in the video...

  48. Mônica Martins

    Eu já sabia que ia amar a nova música pois amo todas as músicas dos GGD, mas superou minhas expectativas. "Yeah, I Like You" guys👏❤🎶

  49. EliteShot

    Still killing it!

  50. Kathy Lea

    Love it! Love anything the Goo Goo Dolls do! Saw them in 2016, they were incredible! Love John and his voice so much! 😍😍❤️❤️

  51. Taylor Anne

    THIS IS FUCKING AMAZING!!!! I desperately needed this right now. Thank you. You guys are amazing. Forever one of my favorite bands. 🙏🏼🥺🌹💛

  52. LoveBugMiko 1988

    Grew up on these guys. I remember when they first came out. Damn. I'm getting old. These guys were my child hood.

  53. Matt Leblanc

    How funny would it be if they started playing don't beat my ass with a baseball bat again

  54. Heart & Sole Sneaker Club

    Listening to GGD for 20 years. Still releasing bangers to this day 💪

  55. Cristian T.

    What a great song! ✨ They still have the energy.

  56. cote441

    So excited for new Goo Goo Dolls music! This song was worth the wait! Love the video - so fun! 💖💖💖

  57. Michelle Berard

    Like a fine wine that just gets better with age. Love this song. Love them!

  58. czykul

    Fell in love with them in 1998, and the more I learned, the more I loved. I have always prayed for them the gift of love, partnership, children, health, & continued success! Prayers seem to be answered! ❤❤❤👏✌️🙏

  59. Hey!! Hey!!

    Rzeznik’s lyrics are excellent and elevate his songs another notch. Really like this one.

  60. Monica Carroll

    Yeah, I Like The New Song. I’m really looking forward to The Goo Goo Dolls new album. Johnny and Robby never disappoint! 🎸😆

  61. Chrisdead 27

    That was really amazing music video. You guys know how to make great music. Been listening you guys ever since Treasure Planet film "I'm still here" and "I'll always know you are". Hopefully to see you guys in concert soon and really did enjoy the music video.

  62. Greg Boyea

    To be able to stay together as a band for over 35 years, put out 19 top 10 hits alone not even counting the other top 40 hits they’ve had, and keep their finger on the pulse of modern radio for so long is an extremely phenomenal accomplishment. I can’t come up with another American band that’s put out a consistently successful catalog of music for as long as they have. Looking forward to seeing them for the 6th time this summer ❤️

  63. Lyra Alma

    They did a live show with Matchbox Twenty a while back and it was a dream come true~

  64. Kathleen 19

    Oh man what I would give to be that little girl playing guitar with Johnny and Robby…What an awesome new song! I love The Goo Goo Dolls so much!!❤️

  65. Meire Honda

    Amo Goo Goo Dolls Amo.
    A Banda é Incrível, sempre apresentando o melhor, Adoro.
    🤩. 🇧🇷. 😘

  66. Jodie Schurman

    My favorite band did it again. Amazing and Johnny’s voice never fails us!!!!

  67. Michael O'Brien

    Been a fan and listening to the GGD since 1995. Still rockin 😎🤘🏻

  68. Sandra Hanley

    TOTALLY LOVE IT!!! Brilliant song and a great parody of today's pointless insta-celeb culture. Excellent work guys, keep the great tunes coming ❤

  69. Brandon Kontorinis

    All these years and it’s always special hearing a new one from them for the first time. Lifelong fan that hopes you guys never stop creating!!

  70. Jesús Velez Castañeda

    I love the song, it's truly excellent ✨
    I'm waiting for the full album ❤️

  71. Heart & Sole Sneaker Club

    Listening to GGD for 20 years. Still releasing bangers to this day 💪

  72. Mnm Chocolate

    I was 15 years old when i discovered goo goo dolls at my dad's old phone
    And I'm not really into music at that age
    So i didn't tap and play the song iris
    and in 2018 i was addicted to it and it became my favourite song
    And goo goo dolls is my favourite music band
    And this song is amazing as well🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  73. Lindsay Delano

    Great new song! Can't wait to hear the album. Listened to you guys growing up because I'm from Buffalo too and how couldn't ya. Can't wait to see you on tour. Go Bills!

  74. Li

    GGD's videos and music are always so good, that's why I love them so much 🥰🔥❤😍

  75. Wesley S.

    LOVE IT! Reminds me a lot of their mid 90s music mixed with more recent albums! Goo Goo Dolls are back!

  76. Jaiden Simmons


  77. Jaiden Simmons

    @czykul awwww, thank you so much!!!!

  78. czykul

    Jaiden, that's incredible that you get to see the Goo Goo Dolls as your first concert! You will always remember it, too! My first concert was age 16, the Rolling Stones, 1981, Pontiac Silverdome. I've seen the Goo Goo Dolls 3x. You are in for a treat! Enjoy!!! ❤❤❤

  79. Lawrence Dizon

    Goo Goo Dolls will always have a special place in my heart. ❤️

  80. Hot tub Time Machine

    Love love love the new song guys. My favorite band of all time. Keep the beautiful music coming. I’ll be here with countless others waiting.

  81. P

    It's not really my style of music, but sounds very radio friendly. They usually release between 1-3 songs I like each album, so looking forward to that. Their last single "This is Christmas' is amazing.

  82. Todd Moss

    You are BACK!!! LOVE IT!!!!! AMAZING John and Rob!!!!!!!!! Thank you guys sooooooo much for this.....lifelong fan!!!!!

  83. Mysterio

    I love so much that they're not a nostalgia act. Each album sounds modern! .

  84. Logan

    Love this song! You guys tapped into that classic goo goo dolls sound we all love. So excited to hear this new music!

  85. Lamaar

    All time favorite band!!!💯💯💯

  86. Joeh

    So excited for the album to drop this is AMAZING!!!

  87. Chris RJ

    These guys were part of my late teenhood in 1998, glad to see them coming back!

  88. Sajid Kabir

    Loved it! Rock on 🤘🏼❤️

  89. Taku

    Great comeback!! Killin' it!!🥳

  90. Andre Garcia

    Obrigado por se renovarem ❤

  91. HamiltonLLB

    Thanks to reality TV and “talent” contests we have so many vying for stardom. They all lack the qualities that Goo Goo Dolls have. Amazing music and proud to have seen them live a few times.
    Goo goo dolls….. we ❤️ you!!!

  92. Commander Sani Ceto

    Long-time Goo fan here! The Goos are my favorite band by far and I'm looking forward to seeing them three more times this summer. I can't say I care for this song, even though the video is so funny and weird! Once a new Goo album drops, there are usually 5-6 songs where, within 20 seconds or so, I get the feels....this is what I love so much about the Goos. This song doesn't do anything for me, but I'm confident there will be some real gems in the album!

  93. Lynn A. LaRusso

    Same here...

  94. Erica Dawson

    Been a fan for my whole life!!! LOVE these guys!! This video and song are pure gold! As always!

  95. Linda Ryan

    What a fun video and I’m loving this new song!! You guys rock on again!! 🎶💃

  96. Mikel Gibson

    You rock. Thanks for the new single and video. I've been to two concerts and you guys still rock as well as you did in the 1990s. Love the new song.

  97. Donna Havrilchak

    Awesome!! Love it! Great new song from a great band!!!

  98. route99

    The band with the best songs...thanks for the new music!

  99. My Digital Diary

    Fell in love with them when I was 11 years old listening to music on my MP3 player and Iris came on . I got up and typed the lyrics in google next thing you know the song has been on repeat ever since !!I’m 25 now and Iris will forever be my favorite song! Thank you for making amazing music 💓💓

  100. BulletproofAngel

    Absolutely amazing!!! Love seeing John and Robby in this chaos 😍😍😍 Yeah, I Like You!!!
