Lyrics

The silent treatment no more

The silent treatment

[Hey, what's this?
The silent treatment
I hate the silent treatment
Why the silent treatment?
That's what I would like to know
I say the silent treatment's got to go]

What did I do?
What did I say?
Just tell me?
Tell me
No no no
The silent treatment no more

[What's this?
The silent treatment?
I hate the silent treatment
Why the silent treatment? That's what I would like to say
I say the silent treatment should go away]

What did I do?
What did I say?
Well just tell me
Just tell me
No no no, the silent treatment no more

I hate the silent treatment
Just tell me what it is that I've done
I don't deserve this silence from anyone
From anyone
No no no
The silent treatment no more

[Here's me and her
We're almost at the game now ???
Looks like ???

I hate the silent treatment
Hey the weather's not too bad
You won't even need that sweater
Everything's going to be pretty good
What do you think?

I hate that silent treatment]

Lyrics

[Oh no
We have to tell you about terrible stuff that can happen now
I'm sorry
We don't want to need to discuss things that are sad but we have to tell you about something else]

[What's this?
The silent treatment?
I hate the silent treatment
Why the silent treatment?
That's what I would like to know
I say the silent treatment has got to go]

What did I do?
What did I say?
Why can't she tell me?
Just tell me
No no no
The silent treatment no more

[What's this?
The silent treatment?
I hate the silent treatment
Why the silent treatment? That's what I would like to say
I say the silent treatment should go away]

What did I do?
What did I say?
Just tell me
Tell me
No no no, the silent treatment no more

I don't deserve such
Silent treatment
Just tell me what it is I've done
I don't deserve silence from anyone
From anyone

[There's us in the car say,
It's a good things the Giants aren't in town, otherwise we'd never have gone to ???
That makes you feel better, right? huh? I hate the silent treatment I hate it I hate it I hate it
Hey I brought you a sweater
That's good right?
Now you're feeling ok? you know
Now you won't have to be cold

The silent treatment is no good]
