Lyrics

I wanna talk to you
Last time we talked Mr Smith you reduced me to tears
I promise you that won't happen again

Do I attract you?
Do I repulse you with my queasy smile?
Am I too dirty?
Am I too flirty?
Do I like what you like?

I got to be wholesome
I could be loathsome
Guess I'm a little bit'shy
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me without making me try?

I tried to be like Grace Kelly (mmmm)
But all her looks were too sad (ahhh ahhh)
So I tried a little Freddie (mmm)
I've gone identity mad!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you walk out the door!

[Getting angry doesn't solve anything.]

How can I help ya
How can I help it
How can I help what you think?
Hello my baby
Hello my baby
Putting my life on my brink
Why don't you like me
Why don't you like me
Why don't you like yourself?
Should I bend over?
Should I look older just to be put on your shelf?

I tried to be like Grace Kelly (mmmm)
But all her looks were too sad (ahhh ahhh)
So I tried a little Freddie (mmm)
I've gone identity mad!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Walk out the door!

Say what you want to satisfy yourself
Hey!
But you only want what everybody else says you should want
you want

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Walk out the door!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Walk out the door!

Oooh, oooh!

[Humphrey, we're leaving.]

    "Just to set the record straight. Grace Kelly and Fred Astaire were a famous duo in their time. Considered the best TAP dancers in the world and often partnered up. Hence the tap dancing sound in the song.
    So the song is definately about Fred Astaire."

    Well, to set the record even straighter, Fred Astaire was actually often partnered with Ginger Rogers, not Grace Kelly. So the song is not definately about Fred Astaire- there's no real logic behind that. It makes more sense that he's talking about Freddie Mercury, for reasons other ppl have mentioned. Plus he sounds a lot like him in the whole song. And it seems to be about his identity issues and trying different personas- so reallly it could be about anyone and the 'characters' he's trying don't have to necessarily relate to each other.

    It's an awesome song! Can't stop listening to it.

    um just to point out to hele27
    um the song is about grace kelly and freddie mercury not fred astaire
    if you listen to how mika sings he sings he sings in the same way as freddie mercury so it hasnt got ne thing to do with fred astaire ok??
    and yeah so there really wasnt any need for your history lesson either that will be all

    So the song is definately about Fred Astaire. Grace Kelly was a famous actress and dancer especially in Tap dancing, so was Fred. She married Price Rainer of Monarco and similar to Princess Diana, she became Princess Grace and was killed in a car accident, she was driving with her daughter Stepanie in the car. Stephanie is still alive today.
