Story

People don't believe me when I say this is a love song. It is! I wrote it just a few days before we started recording "Her Fabulous Debut" and was just fooling around with it during warmups and everyone insisted we record it.

Lyrics

I could always find a reason why a man was not my style
He was rude or crude or stupid or he didn't ever smile
But you are kind and charming and the model of restraint
You're just what I was looking for and that is my complaint

CHORUS: Won't you please do something stupid so I can get over you
If you really cared about me it's the least that you would do
The perfect man's not in my plans; I've got too much to do
So won't you please do something stupid so I can get over you

At the dinner table you did not show me your scar
You did not say you were in movies and I could be the star
You didn't show up with your toothbrush expecting you could stay
You never asked how old I was or how much I weigh
On the way to take me home your car did not run out of gas
You did not stop to hock some loogies off the overpass

CHORUS

It's always been so easy not to sweep me off my feet
I was happy with my Irish Setter and my parakeet
Do you have to be so handsome do you have to be so sweet
I was sure I'd set my standards for someone that I would never meet
I never date comedians because they never laugh
Or anyone whose love letters are not at least a paragraph
Or someone else's boyfriend Or anyone named Steve
Or anyone in high school. but you are none of these

CHORUS
