lyrics

Oh, an appeal to what's right
The dimwit's demise but the dandy's delight
Should never be trite
Or at all impolite

Oh, it's not a question of touch
It's a question of feeling and such
Did I say too much?
Fifty French, fifty Dutch

Fanfaronnade

Oh, she seemed odd for a fan
Two parts coquette, one part tin can
And before she began
I turned and ran

Oh, there's just one guarantee
People are what they pretend not to be
Some monkeys do
And some monkeys see

Fanfaronnade

I try hard to convey
Every emotion in every way
Alas, much to my dismay
It's worse than bad, it's just OK
And there's nothing left to say
But I'll say it anyway

Fanfaronnade

Oh, it's a struggle I suppose
This last bastion of purple prose
Which nobody knows
But that's just how it goes.

Oh, with a wink and a nod
A last cigarette and a firing squad
A nation applauds
Fanfaronnade

I try hard to convey
Every emotion in every way
Alas, much to my dismay
It's worse than bad, it's just OK
And there's left nothing to say
But I'll say it anyway

Fanfaronnade
