What A Catch, Donnie

I got troubled thoughts and the self-esteem to match
What a catch
What a catch

You'll never catch us, so just let me be
Said I'll be fine to the hospital or american embassy

Miss Flack said I still want you back, yeah
Miss Flack said I still want you back

I got troubled thoughts and the self-esteem to match
What a catch
What a catch

And all I can think of is the way
I'm the one who showed the one
Who gave up all of you
Who gave up all of you

They say the captain goes down with the ship
So when the world ends
We'll all go down with it

Miss Flack said I still want you back, yeah
Miss Flack said I still want you ba-a-ack

I got troubled thoughts and the self-esteem to match
What a catch
What a catch

And all I can think of is the way
I'm the one who showed the one
Who gave up all of you
Who gave up all of you

Na-na-nana-na
nana-nana-na (x6)

I will never end up like him
Behind my back I already am
Keep a calendar this you will always know

I said I got troubled thoughts and the self-esteem to match
What a catch
What a catch

And all I can think of is the way
I'm the one who showed the one
Who gave up all of you
Who gave up all of you

Na-na-nana-na
nana-nana-na
(Where is your boy tonight I hope he is a gentleman, maybe he won't find out...)

Na-na-nana-na
nana-nana-na
(Down, down in an earlier round, I'll be your number one...)

Na-na-nana-na
nana-nana-na
(Dance dance, we're falling apart to halftime, dance dance, and these are the lies you have to lead...)

Na-na-nana-na
nana-nana-na
(This ain't a scene it's a goddamn arms race, this ain't a scene it's a goddamn arms race..)

Na-na-nana-na
nana-nana-na
(One night, yeah, and one more time, thanks for the memories, even though they weren't so great..)

Na-na-nana-na
nana-nana-na
(Growing up, growing up)

I got troubled thoughts and the self-esteem to match
What a catch
What a catch
