you want the whole nine yard
lies then lets hear a jeer for the
nice guys i know the end of
this book its a happy one
please look but you cant skip
the start and break for the
good part but our guile is
argyle yes a guys guile is oh
what a guile i got the message
its on it was there all along and
if you lead me along then i
read you wrong what a buy
what am i doing here there
was a bridge and a tunnel to
and does a suitcase kind of
look like a coffin yes and does
it happen often yes and am i
worried well, i guess but it
makes sense i got the message
its on it was there all
along and if i lead you along
then you read me wrong what
a buy what am i doing here i
write her letters from my new
home crying then i kissed the
phone im writing letters to
angels with heavenly pens and
holey tongues sent coded
messages from our north
neighbours.

    General Commenti think this song is a very good showcase of bob's use of diction, consonance, and alliteration. he has such a gift for that.
    this song is very emotional, almost desperate in the attempt to keep a partner when you know the relationship is over/doomed, or realising that a crush will never become a relationship.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a guy who plays girls by pretending to be one of the nice guys. I can almost hear a sarcastic tone to Bob's voice when he says "let's hear a cheer/jeer for the 'nice guys.'" And when he speaks of "our guile," I think he means a guy's deceitful ability to play the good guy and get the girl. And obviously the line "if I lead you along then you read me wrong" is like telling the girl, "hey, you knew what the deal was this whole time, I just wanted to get some, sorry not sorry." And for the rest of the song, I have no idea haha.
