Emily, Emily,
Emily, can't you write a happy song
Get your a** to number one
You could try a little harder

Emily, you could be a millionaire
But you're so full of hot air
Gonna end up like your father

Emily, you can't leave your life to chance
Get a boy and learn to dance
Be a girl like any other

Emily, are you stuck up, are you gay
If you are, well that's ok
Cause it doesn't even matter, Emily

[Chorus]
Emily, it's your life and you can't live it twice
One day you'll understand, Emily take my hand
Emily, I love you, and I know you do too
You never make no sense, screaming at me in French

Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Shut up listen to me, dance with me Emily

Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Shut up listen to me, dance with me Emily

Emily, you got so much in your life
Me I got no one's advice
Don't you know you got it easy
Emily, what you smoking, what's that stench?

Who you screaming at in French
Did you really think you had me?
Emily, that's enough to hide your toes
Acting like you're 8 years old
I give up it's not worth trying

Emily, one day I will end up dead
That's the only thing I've said
That will ever get her smiling, Emily

[Chorus]
Emily, it's your life and you can't live it twice
One day you'll understand and then you'll take my hand
Emily, I love you, and I know you do too
You never make no sense, screaming at me in French

Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Shut up listen to me, dance with me Emily

Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Shut up listen to me, dance with me Emily

Emily, live your life in a balloon
Lock yourself up in your room
So the world can never reach ya

Emily, am I speaking Japanese
Got me falling on my knees
Got me praying to Saint Peter

Emily, see the price I have to pay
I would give my life away
If I knew that I could reach you

Emily, why'd you make this hard for me
It's not the way it's meant to be
I don't never wanna hate you

Emily dance, Emily dance, dance, dance
Emily dance, Emily dance, dance, dance
Emily dance, Emily dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance

[Chorus]
Emily, it's your life and you can't live it twice
One day you'll understand
And then you'll take my hand

Emily, I love you
And I know you do too
You never make no sense
Screaming at me in French

Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Shut up listen to me, dance with me Emily

Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie
Shut up listen to me, dance with me Emily
Emily dance.
