I don’t want to chat with you on the telephone
I know what will happen
My jaw will slacken
‘til I’m saved by that tone
I don’t want to bump in to you on holidays
I’ll sweat and I’ll choke
On thoughts in my throat
Until you just walk away

Cos every time I see you, Oh now
I lose the power of speech
Words remain out of reach
And I always end up looking like your fool
Every time I see you, Oh now
I lose the power of speech
And that took some time to teach and all

I don’t want to converse with you in study class
Cos all that I know
Will blow up in smoke
When it’s my turn to speak I’ll pass
It’s not fair of you to surprise me out on the street
I’ll fret and I’ll frown
While my eyes bear down
On the nothing by my feet

Cos every time I see you, Oh now
I lose the power of speech
Words remain out of reach
And I always end up looking like your fool
Every time I see you, Oh now
I lose the power of speech
And that took some time to teach and all
