You want the whole nine
Yard lies
Then lets hear a jeer
For the nice guys
I know the end of this book
And it's a happy one please book
But you can't skip the start
And break for the good part

But our guile
Is argyle
Yes a guy's guile
Is oh what a guile


I got the message its on
It was there all along
And if I lead you along
Then I read you wrong


There was a bridge
And a tunnel to
And does a suitcase
Kinda look like a coffin
(well, yes)
And does it happen often
(well , yes)
And am I worried
(well yes)
I guess but it makes sense


I got the message its on
It was there all along
And if I lead you along
Then I read you wrong


(What a buy what am I doing here )


I write her
Letters from my new home
Crying
Then I kissed the phone


I'm writing
Letters to angels
With heavenly pens and holey tongues sent
Coded messages to
Our northern neighbors

    General Commenti think this song is a very good showcase of bob's use of diction, consonance, and alliteration. he has such a gift for that.
    this song is very emotional, almost desperate in the attempt to keep a partner when you know the relationship is over/doomed, or realising that a crush will never become a relationship.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a guy who plays girls by pretending to be one of the nice guys. I can almost hear a sarcastic tone to Bob's voice when he says "let's hear a cheer/jeer for the 'nice guys.'" And when he speaks of "our guile," I think he means a guy's deceitful ability to play the good guy and get the girl. And obviously the line "if I lead you along then you read me wrong" is like telling the girl, "hey, you knew what the deal was this whole time, I just wanted to get some, sorry not sorry." And for the rest of the song, I have no idea haha.
