Weird Al Yankovic - Melanie Lyrics



Me-he-he-helanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Me-he-he-he-helanie
Why won't you go out with me

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

Oh, Me-he-he-helanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Me-he-he-he-helanie
Why won't you go out with me

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

Me-he-he-helanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Me-he-he-he-helanie
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

Melanie, ooh
Oh sweet Me-he-he-helanie
Why won't you go out with me

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

Me-he-he-helanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Me-he-he-he-helanie
Why won't you go out with me

Me-he-he-helanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Me-he-he-he-helanie
Why won't you go out with me

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

I'm singin' Me-he-he-helanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Me-he-he-he-helanie
Why won't you go out with me

I'm singin' Me-he-he-helanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Me-he-he-he-helanie
Why won't you go out with me

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

    She lived across the street of the 15th 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

    Oh, Melanie
    What can the problem be
    Sweet Melanie
    Why won’t you go out with me

    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

    Melanie
    What can the problem me

    Melanie, ooh
    Oh sweet Melanie
    Why won’t you go out with me

    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 16th story window
    Right about you
    Now I may be dead but I still love you

    Melanie
    What can the problem be
    Sweet Melanie
    Why don’t you go out with me

    Melanie

    Sweet Melanie
    Why won’t you go out with me

    I’m singin’ Melanie

    Sweet Melanie
    Why won’t you go out with me

  6. Scarf Guy

    I want a show about this. Like his ghost is now tethered to her soul and he's unable to pass on, so Melanie and the dude have to spend the rest of her life together. As the show goes on she finds out that despite being a creep, the dude was a genuinely good guy who just happened to be going about something the entirely wrong way.

  7. Ryan Ball

    This song made me like the name Melonie. I was like 8 when it came out! Great memories!

  8. Max Perdue

    Melanie-San will not notice you, Al-chan

    Aang

    Al is not that big of a fan of anime.

  9. The Protector Of Lolis

    I’m considerably young but I loved listening to Weird Al on “my” radio/disc player/ tape player/ alarm. My mom and dad had a tape of it and back when I was 8 (So like 5 years ago 6 on April 6th) and I would fall asleep to either Pink Floyd or Weird Al. Both of which I have certain songs that I have (Partially) retained and this Lasanga, Fat and (I think Amish Paradise) and Pink Floyd songs like Run Like Hell, Brick In The Wall like 1 and 2, Wish You Were Here, Sheep, Comfortably Numb and probably a few more. Also let me clarify I probably don’t know them well at all but I atleast remember a few lines from each song.
    Edit: Somehow I managed to forget Eat It.

    Fun Fact: This song is a "style" parody of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

  23. Weird Al Yankovic Countdowns AND MORE

    This song doesn't sound like, 'Do I Creep You Out?.' But it's always reminded me of it.

    Weird Al Yankovic Countdowns AND MORE

    I'm probably in the 3% of his fans who like almost everything he does and know all the facts about him.

    Weird Al Yankovic Countdowns AND MORE

    I'm not that great though. I don't have a copy of Peter & the Wolf yet.

    Dom the Bomb

    Do I creep you out must be a prequel as he commits suicide in this one, but in Do I creep you out he goes to jail for stalking "Debbie" a lady who worked at his local Starbucks.
