It Irritates You by Walter Koning

It Irritates You
3/26/02
Words: Walter Koning

That ring on your finger
Does it mean you’re engaged
Are you happy together
He puts up with your rage

When you were friends
You didn’t give a damn
But now

Now that you love him it means something
Now that you love him it irritates you
Toilet seats up and random comments
Leave you upset when it didn’t before

When you first started dating it was all for the love
He’d do this for you and you’d do that for him
You took it all in
And disgusted us all with the lovey dove

But now that you love him it means something
Now that you love him it irritates you
Being a guy or hanging out with friends
You seem so uptight, you never were before

You do things that I don’t like and I just let it go
When I do things that you don’t like the whole world has to know
The bed we share and the meals we cook
The life we lead somehow causes conflict

We listen to the radio on the way home from work
All of the songs about love but you think I’m a jerk
Should we break up, should we just let it go
Then you’d never be able to listen to the radio

When we’re happy together
It’s worth all the rage
I just let things go to keep it casual
When we were friends we didn’t give a damn
But now

Now that you love me it means something
Now that you love me I irritate you
The little things you blew off before
Leave you upset when it didn’t before
