"Can't Say What I Mean" as written by Nicholas Hodgson, Charles Richard Wilson, Nicholas Baines, James Rix and Andrew Robert White....
Well, nothing I said's so important
That it can't be shortened
To fit on a badge
I wish that I could be God
Try to deliver a soundbite
But it is the catch

I can't say what I mean
I can't say what I mean

Everybody applauds her
From the lord to the hordes
And the nation is swept
By a one-to-one conversation
In adult education
I would tell her except

I can't say what I mean
I can't say what I mean
I can't say what I mean
Do you know
When you go
I get all tongue tied
I'm the same
All the game
Oh and you were right

Can't say you're unattractive
But I'm out of practice
In this sort of thing
It's not like I'm talking Italian
Or I wear a medallion
And a sovereign ring

I can't say what I mean
I can't say what I mean
I can't say what I mean
Do you know
When you go
I get all tongue tied
I'm the same
All the game
Oh and you were right

What a face
What a face
Can you blame me for pulling a face
What a waste
What a face

Great things can be expressed
In fifteen words or less
And bring that to your heart
Words just don't do it justice
The world and its crust
Is still drifting apart

I can't say what I mean
I can't say what I mean
I can't say what I mean
Do you know
When you go
I get all tongue tied
I'm the same
All the game
Oh and you were right

Do you know
When you go
I get all tongue tied
I'm the same
All the game
Oh and you were right

What a face
What a face
Can you blame me for pulling a face
What a waste
What a face

    General CommentI think that this is close, but that the lyrics are:

    Nothing I say's so important
    That it can't be shortened to fit on a badge
    I wish that I could be contrite
    And deliver her sound bites, but here is the catch

    I can't say what I mean
    I can't say what I mean

    Everybody applauds her
    From the lord to the hoards and the/a nation is swept
    By her one to one conversations
    In adult education - I would tell her except

    I can't say what I mean
    I can't say what I mean
    I can't say what I mean

    Do you know when you go I get all tongue-tied?
    I'm the same all again back when you arrive

    Can't say you're unattractive
    But I'm out of practice at this sort of thing
    It's not like I'm talking Italian
    Or I wear a medallion and a sovereign ring

    I can't say what I mean
    I can't say what I mean
    I can't say what I mean

    Do you know when you go I get all tongue-tied?
    I'm the same all again back when you arrive

    What a face
    What a face
    Can you blame me for pulling a face?
    What a waste
    What a face

    Great things can be expressed
    In fifteen words or less and pinned onto your heart
    But words just don't do it justice
    The world and its crust is still drifting apart

    I can't say what I mean
    I can't say what I mean
    I can't say what I mean

    Do you know when you go I get all tongue-tied?
    I'm the same all again back when you arrive
    Do you know when you go I get all tongue-tied?
    I'm the same all again back when you arrive

    What a face
    What a face
    Can you blame me for pulling a face?
    What a waste
    What a face
