Ben Lee – Glerp Was A Boy lyrics

I know I pay you out
But really you're my pal
I know I'm being coy
But poor Glerp was a boy
Glerp was a boy
Alternate chapters and with Glerp in a crown
I need that book more than ever right now
To take you for granted was such a bad thing
I'm a wandering fool and you're in control of everything
Glerp was a boy
You wrote my story kept glerp in tears
Twenty chapters spanning ten separate years
King of the calculator, heartbreaking chief
You kept silent while I lied through my teeth
Glerp was a boy
Didn't want a party if you couldn't be there
You took economics while I painted a chair
Stood by me like you had nowhere to go
If I was you I'd have left years ago
Glerp was a boy
Glerp was a boy
We'll finish school and go our separate ways
You'll get to fly off every week interstate
I'm used to seeing you every single day
I can't cope, without your jokes
And the guy who cried cause Glerp was a boy
