No one is more youer than you... and I don't know who you are (video and lyrics)

First...    There is no one alive who is Youer than You.

-Dr. Seuss

About seven or eight years ago I was into Garfunkel and Oates for awhile.  They went from being funny with fun songs to being... gross and crass?  Took their music and their humor down a notch and I kind of lost interest.  I loved seeing them show up on Big Bang Theory too - but I never really went back to being fans of their music.  (... the video they made of them crawling out of vaginas... no thanks.) 

I haven't listened to them in years... are they still making new music?  Is it good?  LOL.  I don't know.  But I do know that when I saw this meme this morning about forgetting what someone's name is, I instantly thought of their song "I don't know who you are".  I can relate.  Ha ha.







You say hello
And I say hello back
You say it's nice to
See me again crap

This conversation just keeps going
Want to get through this without you knowing
You can see it in my eyes
My calculating bullshit lies
You look at me so appalled
'cause I don't recognize you at all

Now am I an asshole
Or are you just boring?
'Cause one of these two things must be true
Am I self absorbed, preoccupied, and shockingly cunty
Or is there just nothing memorable about you?
Well even if I'm arrogant and totally suck
I'm still betting on the latter 'cause you're bland as fuck.

I don't know who you are
I don't have a freaking clue
So get a catchphrase, get an accent
Fuck your face up with a tattoo
Okay, so fine, so now you know
That I don't know, so there you go
That you don't even look a little familiar to me
And I blame you
I blame you

I'm willing to bet
This happens to you a lot
This can't be the first
Blank stare that you've got

You're a sand-filled desert without a mirage
You're a Honda Accord in a parking garage
You're camouflage on camouflage
You're a dumb white guy on entourage
You've chosen no form of expression
Yet expect to make an impression

Now am I a shithead
Or are you just blah?
Hey I think that question is pretty fair
You're looking at me like I just discovered Alaska
But I won't remember you anyway so I don't care
You're overwhelming average-ness is such a drag
So fix the situation or wear a name tag

I don't know who you are
Not even a little bit
Carry nun-chucks, adopt a black kid
To make people give a shit
Okay, so fine, so now you know
That I don't know, so there you go
That you don't even look a little familiar to me
And I blame you
I blame you

I blame you
I blame you
