charmless man - blur


I met him in a crowded room
Where people go
To drink away their gloom
He sat me down and so began
The story of a charmless man
Educated the expensive way
He knows his claret from a beaujolais
I think he’d like to have been Ronnie Kray
But the nature didn’t make him that way



He thinks he’s educated,

Airs those family shares

Will protect him that we will respect him

He moves in circles of friends

Who just pretend that they like him

He does the same to them

And when you put it all together

There’s the model of a charmless man



He knows the swingers and their cavalry

Says he can get it anywhere for free

I began to go a little cross eyed

And from this charmless man

I just had to hide



He talks at speed he gets nose bleeds

He doesn’t see his days

Are tumbling down upon him

And yet tries so hard to please

He’s just so keen for you to listen

But no one is listening

And when you put it all together

There’s the model of a charmless man
