There's a gentleman who's not so gentle cuz he's too generous with his chit and his chat
So lately we've been discussing a way to rid this disgusting example of ample gossip and gab

All we hear is La La La...

He's a gentleman who plays a caricature of a character he wishes he was
So lately we've been ignoring all his stories as we smile and nod and let him simply do what he does
So watch out

And everybody's got the same story:
We never wanted him here
He showed up anyway
He never would leave us alone
We never wanted him here
He showed up anyway
But maybe that's ok

Soon this gentleman was barking louder when his biting harder didn't earn him respect
But lately we've been too proud to admit that we all might miss him just a bit now that he's packed up and left
What did we do?

And everybody's got the same story:
We never wanted him here
He showed up anyway
He never would leave us alone
We never wanted him here
He showed up anyway
But maybe that's ok

We never wanted him here
He showed up anyway
He never would leave us alone
We never wanted him here
And now he's gone for good
But maybe we've made a mistake

    General CommentThis one's pretty easy. These guys hate a certain member of their group who seems to exagerrate, gossip, etc., but when he finally leaves, they miss his old stories.

    General CommentYeah, this song is pretty surprising. I never really paid attention to the words, but this song is basically about that annoying tag-a-long that you never wanted around, but then when he leaves you kind of miss him.

    Like, you don't know what you've got till it's gone.
