"Tell That Mick He Just Made My List of things to Do Today" is the first track from Fall Out Boy's debut Album, Take This to Your Grave. Released along with the album on May 6, 2003, the song was written by Pete Wentz, and produced by Sean O'Keefe.

Background Edit

The title of this song comes from the 1998 film Rushmore, where Max Fisher says, "Tell that stupid Mick he just made my list of things to do today", threatening to kill him.

Lyrics Edit

Light that smoke, that one for giving up on me
And one just cause they’ll kill you sooner than my expectations
To my favorite liar, to my favorite scar (to my favorite scar):
“I could have died with you”
I hope you choke on those words, that kiss, that bottle- I confess
Now ask yourself, yeah, out on the insides, I said I loved you but I lied

Let’s play this game called “when you catch fire”
I wouldn’t piss to put you out
Stop burning bridges and drive off of them
So I can forget about you

So bury me in memory
His smile’s your rope
So wrap it tight around your throat

On the drive home
Joke about the kid you used to see
And his jealousy
Breaking hearts has never looked so cool
As when you wrap your car around a tree
Your makeup looks so great next to his teeth

Let’s play this game called “when you catch fire”
I wouldn’t piss to put you out
Stop burning bridges and drive off of them
So I can forget about you

So bury me in memory
His smile’s your rope
So wrap it tight around your throat
[x2]

So bury me in memory around your throat
