Originally known as "Gitchoo", the song was intended for Songs from the Black Hole. In the song, Jonas presumably feels stung by Laurel who appears to have rejected him, possibly as a consequence of the events in "She's Had a Girl" and/or "Now I Finally See".

The 1995 Ft. Apache demo of this song features slightly different lyrics to those on the final Pinkerton version that better fit the SFTBH mold. "What I did to her, you've done to me" seems to refer to Jonas ditching Maria for Laurel, only to end up empty-handed himself.

"Getchoo" was performed live at many Blue Album tour shows, and during the band's 2005 tour, it was played with Brian Bell on lead vocals.




This is beginning to hurt
This is beginning to be serious
It used to be a game
Now it's a cryin' shame
'Cuz you don't wanna play around no more

Sometimes I push too hard
Sometimes you fall and skin your knee
I never meant to do
All that I've done to you
Please, baby, say it's not too late

To get you, uh-huh

You know this is breakin' me up
You think that I'm some kind of freak
But if you'd come back to me
Then you would surely see
That I'm just foolin' around

I can't believe
What you've done to me
What I did to them
You've done to me
