1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’m not a clinical finisher
For I miss way too many chances
And those same two left feet
Let me down at dances

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The ball will fly out for throw-ins
When it’s meant to be driven down the line
And the girl going home with the local stud
Is the one who was meant to be mine

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The team have only been struggling
In every game I’ve played
And the one girl I’ve copped off with
Is the only one that bayed

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Bayed at the moon
Howled at the stars
I guess I’m not Mark Venus
But she must be from Mars
