Barenaked Ladies – A lyrics

Words & music by steven page

A is for angry, which is what you are at me
A is for adult, which is what I'll never be
A is for applesauce, my favorite meal
A is for adam, which is how I sometimes feel;
Like I'm the only man on earth, and I've forgotten what that's worth
A is for arthur, he's a lovable drunk
A m & azing, like thelonius monk
A is for argument, a is for apparent
A is for antagonism that's not even there and
It's just you begging for attention or something I won't even mention

Chorus:
And I don't even know why you keep on trying
Like I don't even know why I keep on lying
There are millions of people in worlds of their own
And two of them can't let go

A is for algebra, I learned it in school
A is what fonzie said, 'cause he was very cool
A is for adversary, a is for affection
A is arousal, you are giving me an erection
C'mon I'm trying to show affection for longer than a half an hour

Chorus

I met a woman I used to know
Long before you, long ago
All I could say, after hello
Was 'are you still single? '
A is for attitude I can't help but wield
A is for arrogance; emotional shield
A is for acting, a is for abhorrently
A is for asshole, which is what I am, how rude of me.
I owe you an apology I'm sorry

Chorus
