The Lyrics

This is not meant to be generally understood.
When this weird guy starts to look like a clown
And people all point and stare at his old face
I'll go right out to the front of the stage
And hope they look at me, cause he's a waste

With a goof, my partner plays guitar
At least when I'm with him, I am the star, yes yes

So when I perform and my playing "s divine
I know that all the eyes are fixed on me
I hear the applause from the walkin' by crowd
And all the credit goes to my beauty

With this goof, it's a homely face he shows
Not lookin' pretty, baby
For standing next to him, I really glow
So I play with this goof

Every gig, we stand in the summer heat for free
And partner, you don't gripe, no comedy
That's why I'm here
Keep on singin' out

And all our songs, boy, we have them all down
We practice for 6 months and here's the proof
And if this old act causes folks to leave town
Our music did get through
With this old goof

No offense, Highlander, but I admit I would probably spend more time looking at your charming and lovely wife Mari than at you if I ever get a chance to see you two perform in-person!

I don't blame you. Me too.
