Old 97's - She hates everybody

She's a lovely girl but she's a misanthrope
She's sick of the world, she's at the end of her rope
She's had it up to here with everyone but me

Cowboys, bankers, bikers too
She hates 'em all and she might hate you
But when we're alone, she's as sweet as she can be

It's why it feels so good when she takes my hand
When she tells me I'm her man
So good when she holds me tenderly
I'm the only one that she don't mind
The one man out of all mankind
She hates everybody but me

It's hard sometimes with a misanthrope
I got grave concerns and it ain't no joke
I wake up wonderin' when she gonna turn on me


In a cold sweat in the dead of the night
I reach across and I turn on the light
There she is sleepin', as sweet as she can be

It was so hard to win her heart
It's hard as a rock except for one little part
That's why I don't sleep so easily

Yeah, I'm so glad to be one of a kind
But I'm scared to death she might change her mind
She hates everybody but me

And I'll miss her when she's gone
My misanthrope
And I'll think of how it was
And I'll hold out hope
She'll think back on how it used to be
When she hated everybody but me

And how it felt so good when she took my hand
When she told me I'm her man
So good when she held me tenderly
I was the only one that she didn't mind
The one man out of all mankind
She hates everybody but me
She hates everybody but me
She hates everybody but me
