about

Words & Music by Brooke Abbey, 2006.
Do you feel stupid sometimes? That is my life 24/7. But the arrogance fairies help me through my life, so this is not inconsistent with my view that I am the bright shining center of the universe.

lyrics

Bad ideas got my home address Am E
They send me chain letters, and I confess Am
I have been tempted to forward them to you - F F7 E E7 E
What can I say, it's what they tell me to do E Dm Am E7 Am

I know I'm foolish, but it ain't my fault Am E
I was born without my grain of salt Am
So when the devil gives me stock tips and love advice F F7 E E7 E
It sounds like sense as best I can scrutinize E Dm Am E7 Am

I used to get so upset when Dm
I put my foot in my mouth Am Dm Am
I guess I've come to terms with Dm
How it ain't ever gonna come out E7

So when I've been nine kinds of moron, I Am E
Just wait for number ten to arrive Am
I can't avoid it so I don't pout or sulk - F F7 E E7 E
I just save myself some money and do it in bulk E Dm Am E7 Am

(break)

No, there ain't no self-improvement plan Am E
for someone of my attention span Am
I just alternate my boredom with my denial F F7 E E7 E
I've given up - I just try to be stupid with style E Dm Am E7 Am
Yes, I've given up - I just try to be stupid with style E Dm Am E7 Am
