I showed up to your place
With hope nearly erased
The least ribald man
To stage a last stand
Not even sure I know what to ask for
You put your foot down between the door

You said, “I’m shaving an elephant”
Hardly a code, I knew what you meant
“A penny for your thoughts my dear”
The door shut quick making it oh so clear

I put my weary grin back in my pocket
Before you judge, give it a try, don’t knock it
The wires in my skin are touch and go
Every dazed feeling so beat and hollow

Under a cloud and lost at sea
The shamans finally dug the mamby pamby out of me
When love cuts rough and you’ve had enough, enough is enough

I am sorry, oh so sorry for
Choosing the self-help, becoming a bore
These are the hang-ups that lead me to think I am
The wrong man for you
If so baby, what can I do?

The ease of my new delight that you’ll never hear
Is the thorny side of another year
But when I checked all the math
Which bared all the facts
I knew I was the least difficult man for you
