Blur – Charmless Man

I met him in a crowded room
Where people go to drink away their gloom
He sat me dawn and so began
The story of a charmless man
Educated the expensive way
He knows his claret from his beaujolais
I think he’d like to have been Ronnie Kray
But then nature didn’t make him that way
He went na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
He thinks he’s educated
Airs those family shares
Will protect him
That we’ll respect him
He moves in circles of friends
Who just pretend that they like him
He does the same to them
And when you put it all together
There’s the model of a charmless man
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
He knows the swingers and their cavalry
Says he can get in anywhere for free
I began to go a little cross eyed
And from this charmless man I just had to hide
He went na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
He talks at speed
He gets nosebleeds
He doesn’t see
His days are tumbling down upon him
And yet he tries so hard to please
He’s just so keen for you to listen
But no one’s listening
And when you put it all together
There’s the model of a charmless man
He thinks he’s educated
Airs those family shares
Will protect him
That you’ll respect him
And yet he tries so hard to please
He’s just so keen for you to listen
But no one’s listening
And when you put it all together
There’s the model of a charmless man
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
