can’t get you to love me lyrics – gilbert o’sullivan

i can mark time walk a straight line
grab a mad bull by the nose
i can stand still on an ant-hill
and not once get itchy toes
i can even for no reason
be as nice as i am rude
but i can’t get you to love me
i just can’t get you to love me
what do i do?

i can stand up put my hand up
where perhaps it shouldn’t be
i can go down to a hoe-down?
have one h*ll of a yippee!
i can also if you must know
do whatever else i choose
but i can’t get you to love me
i just can’t get you to love me
what do i do?

all of my life i’ve been waiting
for a moment like this
and now that i’ve found it
you know something’s amiss
can’t get you to love me…

i can tell tales hammer toe-nails
write a letter to the queen
i can easily and discreetly
be as charming as obscene
when i feel light

i can take a fight
but i know one thing for sure
i just can’t get you to love me
i just can’t get you to love me
what do i do?
