Forgetyou
Album: Glee: The Music, Volume 4
Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Two
Glee: The 3D Concert Movie Motion Picture Soundtrack
Released: November 16, 2010
By: Cee-Lo Green
Sung by: Holly Holliday and New Directions
Solos: Artie, Holly, Mercedes and Santana
Place: The Choir Room
Episode: The Substitute

Forget You by Cee-Lo Green is featured in The Substitute, the seventh episode of Season Two. It is sung by Holly Holliday and New Directions.

Kurt brings Holly in as the substitute Glee Club director while Will is out sick. She comes in and the Glee Club is immediately mystified by her laid back demeanor. She sings this song after she asks them what kind of music they'd like to sing for Sectionals, a question that isn't asked to them very often by Will. Only Rachel, who was not impressed at all by Holly's "cool teacher" act, decided not to participate in the performance, but her mind changes afterwards. 

Lyrics

Holly (New Directions):
I see you driving round town with the guy I love
And I'm like "forget you" (Oh-oh-oh)
I guess the change in my pocket wasn't enough
I'm like "forget you and forget him, too"
Saying if I was richer, I'd still be with ya
Huh, now ain't that some shhh (Ain't that some shhh)
And although there's pain in my chest
I still wish you the best
With a "forget you" (Oh-oh-oh)

Yeah, I'm sorry I can't afford a Ferrari
But that don't mean I can't get you there
I guess she's an Xbox and I'm more an Atari
Mmh, but the way you play your game ain't fair
I pity the fool that falls in love with you

(Oops, she's a gold digger)
Well (Just thought you should know it)

Ooh, ooh
I've got some news for you
Yeah go run and tell your little girlfriend

I see you driving round town with the guy I love
And I'm like "forget you" (Oh-oh-oh)
I guess the change in my pocket wasn't enough
I'm like "forget you and forget him, too"
Saying if I was richer, I'd still be with ya
Now ain't that some shhh (Ain't that some shhh)
Although there's pain in my chest
I still wish you the best
With a "forget you" (Oh-oh-oh)

Now I know that I had to borrow
And beg and steal and lie and cheat
Trying to keep ya, trying to please ya
Cause being in love with your face ain't cheap
Nah, I pity the fool that falls in love with you

(Oops, she's a gold digger)
Well (Just thought you should know it)

Ooh, ooh
I've got some news for you
Oh, I really hate you right now

I see you driving round town with the guy I love
And I'm like "forget you" (Oh-oh-oh)
I guess the change in my pocket wasn't enough
I'm like "forget you and forget him, too"
Saying if I was richer, I'd still be with ya
Huh, now ain't that some shhh (Ain't that some shhh)
Although there's pain in my chest
I still wish you the best
With a "forget you" (Oh-oh-oh)

Artie and Mercedes (New Directions):
Now baby, baby, baby
Why'd you wanna, wanna hurt me so bad? (So bad, so bad, so bad)
So bad (Mercedes: Yeah) (Artie: Oh)
I tried to tell my mamma
But she told me "This is one for your dad" (Your dad, your dad, your dad)
(Mercedes: Yes she did) (Artie: Yes she did)

Holly (New Directions):
(Uh!) Why?
(Uh!) Why?
(Uh!) Why, baby, baby? (Uh-uh!)

I love you
I still love you! (Santana: Hey, baby!)

Holly with New Directions (Santana):
I see you driving round town with the guy I love
And I'm like "forget you" (Forget you, oh yeah) (New Directions: Oh-oh-oh)
I guess the change in my pocket wasn't enough (Ooh)
I'm like "forget you and forget him, too" (Oh, baby!)
Saying if I was richer, I'd still be with ya (Yeah, you!)
Huh, now ain't that some shhh (New Directions: Ain't that some shhh) (Ooh, ooh!)
Although there's pain in my chest
I still wish you the best (Wish you the best)
With a "forget you" (You, ah-ah-ah) (New Directions: Oh-oh-oh, oh!)

Trivia

  • This is the first time Holly Holliday is featured on a released song.
  • This is the clean version of the song, as the original was entitled "F*ck You."
  • Some of the lyrics are changed, since the original version is sung by a man about his ex-girlfriend, to be sung by a girl about her ex-boyfriend.
  • The song was performed at two of the Glee Live! Concerts in 2011 with Gwyneth Paltrow. Also, Lea Michele and Ashley Fink performed with the cast, unlike in the episode.
  • In an episode of Saturday Night Live, a skit shows Kenan Thompson impersonating Cee Lo Green singing a parody of this song and the caption says "Gwyneth Paltrow's Song From Glee by Cee Lo Green."
  • This song reached #1 on the U.S iTunes Charts.
