Allen, Lily - Don't Get Me Wrong Lyrics

Don't get me wrong, if I'm looking kind of dazzled
I see neon lights, whenever you walk by
Don't get me wrong, if you say hello and I take a ride
Upon a sea where the mystic moon is playing havoc with the tide
Don't get me wrong

Don't get me wrong, if I'm acting so distracted
I'm thinking about the fireworks that go off when you smile
Don't get me wrong, if I split like light refracted
I'm only off to wander across a moonlit mile

Once in a while, two people meet
Seemingly for no reason, they just pass on the street
Suddenly thunder showers everywhere
But who can explain the thunder and rain, but there's something in the air

Don't get me wrong, if I come and go like fashion
I might be great tomorrow, but hopeless yesterday
Don't get me wrong, if I fall in the mode of passion
It might be unbelievable, but let's not say so long
It might just be fantastic, don't get me wrong

  1. Kay C

    Her brother serve house Stark well, but sadly John wick killed him for being a prick.

  2. Arcadia Jacky

    Definitely better than the original. So much sweeter. Lilys interpretstion is exactly what the song needed.

    This sucks. This bird-brain isn't worthy of kissing Chrissie Hynde's feet.

    don't get me wrong.. but you're cover sucks..


    don't get me wrong... but your grammar sucks...

  21. Zoned 247

    I like Lily Allen, because she's genuine, but you shouldn't cover The Pretenders. Seriously don't fuck about with a Chrissie Hynde song, like ever

  22. Patrick Lyons

    A stake through the heart of a great song.

  23. Finco Bherthë

    perfect her beautiful voice...

  27. Diana Hyland

  29. Moriyoshi Sato佐藤 守克

    when i heard this, i feel good sense of that her way of covering the song ... indeed Lilly challenged the great song, She did It !!!

    Moriyoshi Sato佐藤 守克

    @***** the first time when i watched Lily's video, She sang country music "It's not fair"... i thought she's American singer... and now she is the kind of singer who can sing many different type of songs. i like her songs and so on i love the covered songs which she is singing...

  30. Kate Holme

  43. keith jaynes

    Not good, Pretenders a lot better

    Robert S

    Pretenders superior. Lily Allen inferior.

  44. Janae Gonzalez

    God, I love this woman. Her voice is perfect.

  45. Saru Wakusei

    So beauty

  46. pythoncase

    Sorry, nothing against this version, but it just doesn't do it for me. It is a good version, though.

  47. Denise Brutus

    you are rght!

  48. AJCC

    What a shit voice stick to talking songs u cant sing mate :-X

    Alejandro Robles Dominguez

    AJCC this is a non-commercial song, it’s just a cover so chill...

  49. Izmir Mendoza

    A very lovley song

  50. Владимир Лебедев

    Yes this song clings

  51. Mario Irving


  52. hateUmankind

    nice song but i still like the original batter

  53. Peeanut Butteer

    lily allen CAN do you think she became a singer? most people including me like Lily's singing. so stfu. dont like it? ignore :)

  54. S1deshowRob

    I love this cover

  55. miracat53

    Its funny. Since she has an accent we kind of think of her as a cool backstreet brittish singer. In Britain I bet shes thought of more as a Colbie Callait kind of girl.

  56. Djsolaur

    I like it alot
    soft voice and that nice British accent
    I don't think this is bad at all shame on the naysayers
    before you naysay something best be sure that you can do it better yourself...
    that's what I say on the matter.I like it much though really

  57. Karen Schooff

    How do you figure? She doesn't miss a single note OR end every sentence with a whine like Hynde.. (which is fine cause it's her style) but seriously. Lily sings awesome. Get real.

  58. marcel-nine-one-one

    Love it. A great song with the uniquely Lily treatment :)

  59. razor tailed

    Ok, im a cat. woof.

  60. Manon D

    Kinda ironic for someone named "Kitty".

  61. razor tailed

    I'm a dog, woof.

  62. Centigonos

    Well, it is a matter of opinion, right? But with you fond of both and me only fond of the Pretender's version, you win by 2:1. :D

  63. Richard Harris

    Nonsense; I love Hynde but lily is wonderful too.

  64. carlos rojas h

    me gusta mas la version Original .... :)

  65. Manon D

    It's really just a matter of taste. I genuinely like Lily Allen's voice. It's not very powerful or anything I'll give you that, but it's cute, nice and easy on the ears (which makes the lyrics of her songs sound fun until you realise their meaning so that makes the songs really funny and cruel and I love that). And she's a singer songwriter and I respect her for that, so I guess she earned the right to do a cover from time to time.

    paul rawes

    Kelly Magination This version, sounds rather cold, and lacking emotion!

  66. Centigonos

    Big difference though:
    - Chrissie Hynde -> can sing.
    - Lily Allen -> cannot.

    Jef De Beuker

    Centigonos maybe you should shut up since lily is da best singer ever

  67. Daniel Tellez

    such a pretty British jewel!! cheers from Colombia!

  68. Ian Clayton

    Didn't think would be any good...great effort

  69. amanda rhymers

    How do I purchase this track??

  70. dan4466

    I think I like this better than the Pretenders version. Great job, Lily.

  71. Tomboyu

    This is good. I don't know what everyone is complaining about.

  72. Chimchimchubs

    you are you doing here??

  73. Weasel Shark

    wow.....this sucks complete ass

  74. Rene Nuñez

    Lily sos hermoza, este un temaso.

  75. marcb3211

    way to ruin a classic Lily...

  76. mummel18000

  89. h00ligan

    Good voice, cool song.

  90. Akira Ryouta

    Why is she so sexy.... -gets jealous-

  91. Manon D

    How can one be so immature ? It's not about "excelling The Pretenders", it's a freaking honour to have someone covering your song ! Se liked it, she sang it ! Don't you ever sing songs you like ? In the shower at least ? Well, since she's a singer, we actually get to listen to her versions. Don't like it, go listen to The Pretenders. I love their versions as well, congrats to them for writing it. But this is good as well.

  92. Ginevra Ryhanen

    She's so pretty:)

  93. Meli

    She is so pretty :D And her voice is really beautifull *-*
