Pardon me, friend
If what I'm saying don't seem right
But that's the only chance
I get now for being nice, yeah

Pardon me, Sir
If what I'm saying frays you now
But that's the only way to show you
That I'm a clown, ho, yeah

I'm quite sure you understand (my baby)
I'm quite sure you understand

Pardon me, friend
If what I'm saying don't ring true
But that's the only way I know now
To get through to you, ooh

Well, pardon me, Sir
If what I'm doing brings you down
But that's the only place I know, Sir
Is town to town, yeah

I'm quite sure you understand (my baby)
Hope you do, hope you do
Let me see you right now
I'm quite sure you understand

I'm quite sure you understand (my baby)
Hope you understand
I'm quite sure you understand

Yeah, pardon me, friend
If what I'm saying don't seem right
Ooh, now, but that's the only, yeah
Yes that's the only way now
Oh, that's the only, that's the only way
That's the only, oh, that's
The only way I know

That's the only, that's the only way
That's the only, only thing I know...
