WEEK 6  — Fuck It (I Don’t Want You Back) — Eamon

THE LYRICS

 

Fuck It (I Don’t Want You Back) — Eamon

 
See, I don’t know why I liked you so much.
I gave you all, of my trust.
I told you I loved you. Now that’s all down the drain,
You put me through pain.
I want to let you know how I feel:

Fuck what I said, it don’t mean shit now.
Fuck the presents, might as well throw ’em out.
Fuck all those kisses, they didn’t mean jack.
Fuck you, you hoe. I don’t want you back.
Fuck what I said, it don’t mean shit now.
Fuck the presents, might as well throw ’em out.
Fuck all those kisses, they didn’t mean jack.
Fuck you, you hoe. I don’t want you back.

You thought you could
Keep this shit from me, yeah.
You burnt bitch, I heard the story.
You played me. You even gave him head.
Now you’re askin’ for me back.
You’re just another hack.
Look elsewhere ’cause you’re done with me.

Fuck what I said, it don’t mean shit now.
Fuck the presents, might as well throw ’em out.
Fuck all those kisses, they didn’t mean jack.
Fuck you, you hoe. I don’t want you back.
Fuck what I said, it don’t mean shit now.
Fuck the presents, might as well throw ’em out.
Fuck all those kisses, they didn’t mean jack.
Fuck you, you hoe. I don’t want you back.

You questioned, did I care?
You could ask anyone. I even said
You were my great one.
Now its over — but I do admit I’m sad.
It hurts real bad.
I can’t sweat that, ’cause I loved a hoe.

Fuck what I said, it don’t mean shit now.
Fuck the presents, might as well throw ’em out.
Fuck all those kisses, they didn’t mean jack.
Fuck you, you hoe. I don’t want you back.
Fuck what I said, it don’t mean shit now.
Fuck the presents, might as well throw ’em out.
Fuck all those kisses, they didn’t mean jack.
Fuck you, you hoe. I don’t want you back.

SOPHIE’S  TAKE

 
I love songs with lots of swearing in them! This is one is an unforgettable howl of pain and it’s the perfect musical accompaniment to any romantic betrayal grudge. It’s the straight-talking, almost naive approach that makes this song so great: ‘Now you’re asking for me back./You’re just another hack./Look elsewhere, cos you’re done with me.’

If someone’s really shattered your heart and let you down, saying ‘Fuck’ a lot can honestly make you feel quite a bit better.

OTHER GRUDGE GOODIES

“Hopefully once you’ve read this book, you will  understand that grudges can and should be great, and you’ll be inspired to pass on the gift of grudge-holding to the next generation. Sending yourself and your loved ones out into the world with a strong grudge-growing ability is as essential as putting on a helmet and not drinking four bottles of vodka before getting onto your motorbike and zooming off down the motorway. Trust me: it’s true
