lyrics

Casual conversation
Is no temptation
For anybody like me

Bound to say the wrong thing
I feel a strong sting
Making a chat unlikely

Here's what I could say
Thinking in a simple way

Tell me, how's your girlfriend
She's not my girlfriend
I'm glad to hear about that

Damn, she screwed around then
She's now my wife, man
It was before you two met

Gee, already late
I need to go to keep a date

Always has to be me
Who puts his feet in it, naturally

Girl, it's good to see you
I'm filled with glee, too
And evidently much more

Hope the baby ain't late
I only gained weight
I help myself to the door

There' s another slip
That surely could descend my lip

Always has to be me
Who puts his feet in it, naturally

“Piano, bass and drums – I don’t think I really need any other instruments!” said Erk when he started back in 2003. Since then he has evolved his sound and music, but still keeps it simple!
