Charmless Man lyrics

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 charm less man
educated the expensive way
he knows his claret from a beaujolais
i think he'd like to have been ronnie kray
but then nature didn't make him that way

he thinks his 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 charm less man

he knows the swingers and their cavalry
says he can get in 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 he 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 charm less man
