Fu©k The Dubbing

I caught Pink’s catchy song on the local radio this morning. I knew there were swear words and so listened intently, wondering what would happen. Ultimately, the point of dubbing or deletion of swear words just does not work.


When you know something is deliberately dubbed, it actually induces you to pay more attention to a song (or movie) and then naturally fill in the blanks. The counterintuitive bit is that ... it actually makes you swear more than usual.


Here’s the YouTube version with full lyrics (below):


P!nk - Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely)



This YouTube link has a somewhat hilariously-themed music video

Pink - Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely) Freakshow Theater




Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely) lyrics

Go away

Give me a chance to miss you

Say goodbye

It'll make me want to kiss you

I love you so

Much more when you're not here

Watchin all the bad shows

Drinking all of my beer


I don't believe Adam and Eve

Spent every goddamn day together

If you give me some room there will be room enough for two


Tonight

Leave me alone I'm lonely

Alone I'm lonely

I'm tired

Leave me alone I'm lonely

Alone I'm lonely tonight


I don't wanna wake up with another

But I don't wanna always wake up with you either

No you can't hop into my shower

All I ask for is one fu©kin' hour

You taste so sweet

But I can't eat the same thing every day

Cuttin off the phone

Leave me the fu©k alone

Tomorrow I'll be beggin' you to come home


Tonight

Leave me alone I'm lonely

Alone I'm lonely

I'm tired

Leave me alone I'm lonely

Alone I'm lonely tonight


Go away

Come back

Go away

Come back

Why can't I just have it both ways

Go away

Come back

Go away

Come back

I wish you knew the difference

Go away

Come back


Go away

Give me a chance to miss you

Say goodbye

It'll make me want to kiss you

Go away

Give me a chance to miss you

Say goodbye

It'll make me want to kiss you

Go away

Give me a chance to miss you

Say goodbye

It'll make me want to kiss you


Tonight

Leave me alone I'm lonely

Alone I'm lonely

I'm tired

Leave me alone I'm lonely

Alone I'm lonely tonight


Tonight

Leave me alone I'm lonely

Alone I'm lonely

I'm tired

Leave me alone I'm lonely

Alone I'm lonely tonight


Tonight

Go away

Give me a chance to miss you

Leave me alone I'm lonely

Alone I'm lonely

Say goodbye

It'll make me want to kiss you

I'm tired

Go away

Give me a chance to miss you

Leave me alone I'm lonely

Alone I'm lonely

Say goodbye

It'll make me want to kiss you

Tonight

Go away

Give me a chance to miss you

Say goodbye

It'll make me want to kiss you
