lyrics

I've got every advantage in upbringing and health
Sometimes I even envy myself
But I'm still somehow two cards short of a deck
Everything I touch ends up lost or wrecked

But maybe you're new hope for me
An upturn in the slope for me
A rose-tinted telescope for me
Totally full of rock n roll like Newcastle is full of coal

Maybe you're my hideaway
Maybe national cider day
Maybe Cole Porter's “Night and Day”
Well you can see that I'm a nut who's totally devoted- but

I'm such a klutz- I always screw up
I'm such a klutz- I run amuck
I'm such a klutz- everyone duck
I really hope you're looking for the clumsiest schmuck

Maybe you're my roaring stove
Maybe you're my olive grove
Maybe my rugged rocky cove
In my heart of heart of hearts, the beating's gone right off the chart

Maybe it's no accident
Our match rating's at maximum
Except that you like saxophones
But before we start rejoicing there's one doubt I must be voicing: That:

I'm such a klutz- I always screw up
I'm such a klutz- I run amuck
I'm such a klutz- everyone duck
I really hope you're looking for the clumsiest schmuck
