Kidding

A figure dressed in the finest attire
That money can buy
Laiden with assets to make an impression
On a stranger's eye

And he lives in a palace
Surrounded by roses in a perfect picture
He's in deep with the shallow
He's fading cause he can't see the sky

Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you everything
Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you anything
Who are you kidding mister?
I'm so happy that i could sing, yeah
Nobody, you're kidding nobody
Nobody but you

A dinner with twenty people you hate
And they're hating you more
Talking politely, it's all a show
Tell me what is it for?

And your laugh is tale-telling
They follow but you know you're not a funny man
The truth is the meaning
And your life is that you wouldn't have one
If you were poor

Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you everything
Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you anything
Who are you kidding mister?
I'm so happy that i could sing, yeah
Nobody, you're kidding nobody
Nobody but you

Yeah. . .
Such a shame, sir
Such a shame
Such a shame

Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you everything, yeah
Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you anything
Who are you kidding mister?
I'm so happy that i could sing, yeah
Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Nobody but yourself X5
Nobody. . .

Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you everything
Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you anything
Who are you kidding mister?
I'm so happy that i could sing
Nobody, kidding nobody
Nobody but you
Nobody, kidding nobody
Nobody but you
Nobody, you're kidding nobody
Nobody but you

    General CommentIt's about a man who is rich and impressionable and has everything money can buy, but he's completely miserable. And then this woman comes into his life, and she is "so happy that she could sing," even though she's not at all rich. And he must be rejecting her, because she keeps repeating, "Who are you kidding? I can give you everything...you're kidding nobody but yourself."

    General Commentmy question is why would she want someone like this man?she is obviously genuine and money doesn't make her, so why would she want someone like him.

    "And your laugh is tale-telling
    They follow but you know you're not a funny man
    The truth is the meaning
    And your life is that you wouldn't have one
    If you were poor "

    not desireable at all.

    General Commentmaybe she herself doesnt want him, she just sees that he is kidding himself and being fake, and if he would quit trying so hard someone like her could give him everything that he really wants

    General CommentYeah, I'm not sure where this interpretation involving any woman came from. It's just an outside observation on his life, not necessarily by anyone involved in it.
