They don't much care for you
No, they don't like your kind
The way you look, walk or the way you talk
The way you always speak your mind

But you want to be my friend
You're not anything like them
You can show me things I've never seen
You say, ooh, child what a waste
If we never took a taste
Of everything we find in between

Ooh, you make me nervous
Ooh, you make me want to run away and hide
You make me nervous
When you look at me I just can't lie
Ooh, you make me nervous tonight

Yeah, feels so wrong and feels so right
It feels like insanity
Oh, I keep acting strange, hoping that I'll change
Waking in a sweat from a burning dream, yeah

And then look at all my friends
I keep on pleasing them
Caught up in the chaos of their minds
Ooh child, the fear I have
Keeps me bound and keeps me gagged
Pushing harder all the time

Ooh, you make me nervous
Ooh, you make me want to run away and hide
Ooh, you make me nervous
When you look at me I just can't lie

I want to shovel all the blame
I want to shoot out all the lights
I want to call you names and start a fight
Because you make me nervous tonight

Heart pounds, hands wet, mouth dry
I shake, I scream, I cry, no eat, no sleep all night
I build my lonely cell with secrets I can't tell
Oh, frozen in my fright, oh, ooh, you make me nervous tonight

You make me nervous, you make me nervous
You make me nervous
Oh, you make me want to run away and hide
Oh, you make me nervous
When you look at me I just can't lie

I want to shovel all the blame
I want to shoot out all the lights
I want to call you names and start a fight

Oh, you make me nervous, nervous, nervous
Ooh, you make me nervous tonight
