My Girl - Lyrics and Information

Song Lyrics:

My girl's mad at me
I didn't want to see the film tonight
I found it hard to say
She thought I'd had enough of her

Why can't she see
She's lovely to me
But I like to stay in and watch TV
On my own every now and then

My girl's mad at me
Been on the telephone for an hour
We hardly said a word
I tried and tried but I could not be heard

Why can't I explain why do I feel this pain
'Cos every thing I say she doesn't understand
She doesn't realise she takes it all the wrong way


My girl's mad at me
We argued just the other night
I thought we'd got it straight
We talked and talked
Until it was light

I thought we'd agreed I thought we'd talked it out
Now when I try to speak she says that I don't care
She says I'm unaware and now she says I'm weak

Song Information:

The song first made its way into the band's set when they were performing as "The Invaders".
The first performance of the song came in July 1978, when it was performed by the band at the "Blind Alley Shop" and simply titled "New Song".
Barson originally performed lead vocals, and even sang on the demo for the song. However, Suggs took over the vocal duties before long, and sang the album version of the song. When the group performed the song on Top of the Pops in January 1980, they were the first band of the new decade performing on the TV show.
