Aimee Mann - Stupid Thing Lyrics




Nothing was saving our day
There was nothing to say
But you said something anyway
Claiming I stepped out of line
Which forced you to leave me
As if that idea was mine

Oh, you stupid thing
Speaking of course as your dear departed
Oh, you stupid thing
It wasn't me that you outsmarted
Oh, you stupid thing
Stopping it all
Before it even started

I bet you knew it would come
That's just like you to sit back
And just play it dumb
One word of warning would help
But that sacrifice was made
Trying to save yourself

Oh, you stupid thing
Speaking of course as your dear departed
Oh, you stupid thing
It wasn't me that you outsmarted
Oh, you stupid thing
Stopping it all
Before it even started

Maybe that's just how I am
To fall where I stand
Or I'm weak for that kind of man
One who looks helpless and brave
But you turned into a coward
I don't care for the parts you saved

Oh, you stupid thing
Speaking of course as your dear departed
Oh, you stupid thing
It wasn't me that you outsmarted

Oh, you stupid thing...

    Every Aimee Mann song is a lyrical masterpiece. This one holds so much special meaning for me. I've been playing it for 20 years. I'd give my next boyfriend to hear her play it live. (he'd never be worthy, of course).

  3. Zero The Dragon

    This is one of my all time favourite music videos. And Aimee is my all time fav!!!

  6. alan thorne

    Never get tired of this song.Aimee is just a brilliant songwriter(and ,ahem,easy on the eye).This song reminds me of an Elvia Costello which of course she crossed paths with

    I don't generally share such personal feelings... but Aimee's music touches me in ways that nothing else can. Many reasons for that which I won't share. Thanks for posting this. Emotions swell when I hear her voice. They always have. They always will.
