about

Do you know anyone who's a bit boring? Sometimes you don't have to look very far...

lyrics

You give me knowledge
When I don’t want it
You tell me things
That I’ve already heard
I’m not still a kid
Straight out of college
I know much more
Than you will ever learn

Should I bite my lip?
To stop my mouth
Coming out with it
Or just scream out loud?
‘Cos I’m fed up
With all of your “sha la la la”

Boring
You’ve always got too much to say
Boring
Conversations meant to be two way

Whatever I’ve done
You’ve gone one better
A one man show
That is so absurd
You think you’re brilliant
‘Cos you’ve got money
Socially bankrupt
In the real world

Should I bite my lip?
To stop my mouth
Coming out with it
Or just scream out loud?
‘Cos I’m fed up
With all of your “sha la la la”

Boring
You’ve always got too much to say
Boring
Conversations meant to be two way

Boring, Boring, Boring, Boring

I’m getting on now
Almost a lifetime
I’ve done so much
And I know where I’m at
But when I’m talking
I get the feeling
You’re being polite
But think I am a “twit”

Should I bite my lip?
To stop my mouth
Coming out with it
Or just scream out loud?
‘Cos I’m fed up
With all of your “sha la la la”

Boring
You’ve always got too much to say
Boring
Conversations meant to be two way
Boring
Other people think the same as me
Boring
Shut up and make us all happy

Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah
Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah
Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah
Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah
