At the bus stop, raining cats and dogs
A little woman
No umbrella out in the cold rain
I was there too
Umbrella of my own
I offered protection but she looked at me as if to say
I see where this is going
She said

“Sorry I don’t talk to strangers
(Oh Yeah)
Daddy wouldn’t like you either”

I think you misunderstood me
I’m only trying to help
You really look like you need me
She said “Don’t flatter yourself boy”

So I stood there
Lookin’ abused like a fool
But I knew I don’t belong on the soles of her shoes, oh no

Said “I’m a nice guy, little bit funny, responsible, ethical”
And she just looked at me laughing
She said “I think you’re lying little boy”, she said

“Sorry I don’t talk to strangers
(Oh Yeah)
Daddy wouldn’t like you either”

I didn’t say you’re my baby
I’m only being nice
Because you look like you need me
She said “Don’t give me your lines”

At the bus stop, raining cats and dogs
A little woman driving me right out of my mind
One, she’s not so funny
Two, she’s kind of loony
Three, she’s mean and
Four, she’s completely insane
Yeah, she’s really drivin’ me out of my mind
So I said

“Sorry I don’t talk to strangers
(Oh Yeah)
Daddy wouldn’t like you either”
And so I let her get rained on
Hair was soakin’ wet
She really should have believed me better
Some girls get so upset
