Doppelgänger

about

Doppelgänger (noun): An exact look-alike or double of a person that often connotes evil. I refuse to comment on the reliability of this song's narrator.

lyrics

There's a guy that looks just like me
And he's ruining my credibility
He's been spotted everywhere in town
Tryin' to drag my reputation down

My friends saw him with a mouthful of gin
Pickin' fights he knew he couldn't win
He's a menace and a cheat and a fake
Someone stop him before it's too late!

There's no explanation I can see
He's a mystery, and he's got it in for me

I'd never tell my baby lies
But my doppelgänger would, no surprise
I'd never make my baby cry
But my doppelgänger's guilty of both these crimes

Now my baby's gettin' me frustrated
Our relationship is complicated
She said I'm out too late each night
And that's when it turned into a fight

Cuz I haven't left the house in days
I've been sat here gettin' hammered and blazed
But then she turns on her phone
And I proceed to have my mind blown

By pictures of some guy who looks like me
Scandalous in theme, making mortal enemies

(oh no, this can't be good)

I'd never tell my baby lies
But my doppelgänger would, no surprise
I'd never make my baby cry
But my doppelgänger's guilty of both these crimes
I'm innocent of all these lies
I'm not the doppelgänger, I have alibis
Look at me straight in the eyes
He's a serious flight risk with no significant community ties!

All these good intentions that you see
They're the real me, not this phantom mystery
