about

terrible

lyrics

1. Youʼd make a terrible song
All the words would come out all wrong
I could talk about your teeth and your tongue
Or how your legs lay so heavy and long
But you, youʼd make a terrible song
2. Itʼs not you, itʼs me
Maybe just a lack of chemistry
Itʼs a bend in the road or the crook of your knee
Or maybe Iʼm tired of trying to please
So you, youʼd make a terrible song
3. Iʼll miss the strained civility
Maybe just crumpling your sheets
The grease in your hair and your pores I suppose
Make you unfit for poems or prose
So you, youʼd make a terrible song
4. I know whatʼs right from whatʼs wrong
I would never lead you on
The pitch or the tempo is just not quite right
Baby Iʼm glad you stayed home tonight
Because you, youʼd make a terrible song
5. Youʼd make a terrible song
All these words are mangled and wrong
Youʼre hard to describe, try though I may
All your good points are just old cliches
So you, youʼd make a terrible song.
