When he was 20 he started a riot
He had so much charisma he couldn’t keep quiet
And the girls all know but they’re not telling
My best friend’s sister she’s always rebelling

And you know you really should go
‘Cause if you stay you’ll find another way
And I know that you know too much
Much too much
Just a little too much
That’s much too much

I’ll tell you my tale, listen if you can
It’s just the story of a very lonely man
And everything I ever tried to sneak past you
You caught me out darling well done for you

‘Cause now you know you really should go
‘Cause if you stay you’ll find another way
And I know that you know too much
Much too much
Just a little too much
That’s much too much

I’ll tell you my tale
It’s getting near the end
Once we were lovers but now we’re just friends
And every little lie I tried to sneak past you
You caught me out darling well done for you

‘Cause now you know you really should go
‘Cause if you stay you’ll find another way
