The Lyrics

I was gonna ask you out
But I was too shy
Gonna see what you're about
But I was too shy
Now I'm sitting here alone
And you know why?
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy

Got my fingers in my nose
Because I'm too shy
And I'm picking at my toes
Because I'm too shy
Got nothing else to do
And this is why
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy

I was gonna go to the bar
But I was too shy
Gonna go where the ladies are
But I was too shy
Now I'm eating some Doritos
And I know why
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy

I was gonna make some friends
But I was too shy
Who I could trust until the end
But I was too shy
I'm a big hikikomori, and you know why?
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy

I was gonna get a job
But I was too shy
I was gonna stop being a slob
But i was too shy
At the interview I ran away and cried
'Cause I was too shy
'Cause I was too shy
'Cause I was too shy

I was gonna go to school
But I was too shy
'Cause I think that learning's cool
But I was too shy
Now I'm still "un-eddjicated" and I know why
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy

I was gonna run for Prez
But I was too shy
I'd campaign wearing a fez
But I was too shy
Now I'm voting for a vampire* and I know why
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy

I was gonna go to church
But I was too shy
'Cause my soul has always searched
But I was too shy
Now I'm still a heathen
And I know why
Because I'm too shy
Because I'm too shy
Because I'm too shy

I was gonna write this song
But I was too shy
I was gonna make it long
But I was too shy
How you're reading this right now
I can't fathom why!
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy
Because I'm so shy
*Look up Jonathon Sharkey, if you haven't already heard of him.

I'm not too shy to vote 555 for this song. There is a lot here I can relate to. I think you've found a theme song.
