"Shatner" as written by and David Gedge....
Wear something bright & turn away
Imagine girls behaving in that way
Why don't you pack your bags & leave?
Look here's another bruise I didn't see
You can't say "it doesn't really matter"
This isn't t.v., he isn't William Shatner
Oh I've told you before
These days you look so pale & thin
Wave down a bus & let's be rid of him
You've spent this night beside you t.v. set
Remember when you used to laugh at it
You laughed a bit
You can't say "it doesn't really matter"
This isn't t.v., he isn't William Shatner
Oh I've told you before
You can't say "it doesn't really matter"
This isn't t.v., he isn't William Shatner
