A New Me

I heard you cut off all your hair
And everybody loves it
I heard you got new clothes to wear
And they fit you perfectly
They even told me that your artwork
Was hanging in some places
And I was happy for you till they said that
You found a new me

You found a new me
Well, how could that be?
Oh, I hate to sound like the cocky clown I am
You think you found a new me
Well honey wait and see
‘Cause you’re gonna be wanting back the old me that you had

I heard the people at your work
Were screaming a promotion
And that they’d all just go berserk
If you’d ever leave
They even told me that you’re doing
Everything you wanted
And I was happy for you till they said that
You found a new me

You found a new me
Well how could that be?
Oh, I hate to sound like the cocky clown I am
You think you found a new me
Well honey wait and see
‘Cause you’re gonna be wanting back the old me that you had

I hear her hair’s a lot like mine
Only kind of dirty
I hear her smile looks just fine
But her lips sure aren’t like these
And they don’t say that you’re in love
Just that she really wants you
And I was happy to hear that she don’t
Hold a candle to me

Hold a candle to me
‘Cause that could not be
Oh, I hate to sound like the cocky clown I am
You think you found a new me
Well darling wait and see
‘Cause you’re gonna be wanting back the old me that you had

You think you found a new me
Well how could that be?
Oh, I hate to sound like the cocky clown I am
You think you found a new me
Well darling wait and see
‘Cause you’re gonna be wanting back the old me
Wishing for the old me
No wait, crawling back to the old me that you had
