Intro: G B* A* (play 2 times) G B* A* There's a tall, mulatto, boy I know G B* A* And he comes to every party - he stands alone. G B* A* In viewing them the rest, the 'corner of his glance, it gets so clear G B* A* C* C* He's not, judging anyone. G B* A* The way his arms float around his cage, he's caged G B* A* Canary sings, silently brings, his voice to rage. G B* The way they stop and stare, the way they turn their A* heads, it's enough to make him want to run away, G B* A* C* C* But he stays, he stands his ground. (Chorus) G D C* And I'm, I'm so damn lame. G Em* C* The way I condescend without ever knowing his name. G D He keeps it in a box, hangs it from his ear C* Looks at everyone without the slightest fear. G Em* C* It's makin' me so ashamed. G B* A* (play 2 times) G B* A* Slender body, slip through his glance. G B* A* I don't give it a single chance. G The way he's rocking back and forth, B* makes a buzzin' in my ear, A* Constantly reminding me that I never stop to hear G B* A* C* C* him say hello, hello. (Chorus 2) G D A* And I'm, I'm so damn lame. G Em* A* Like a moth bumpin' off his godless flame. G D C* I cannot condescend or even apprehend, what comes over me G Em* C* When I see his shameless face. Em* B A* C* So rage, please rage, against me Em* B A* C* Beat me down, beat me down, forgive me, Em* B A* C* For what I've done, I'm so lame, I'm so lame, I'm so lame Em* B A* C* Em* So lame, so lame, so lame.
