Bio Blues

Well I came out as a shy boy
They should've seen my score
Well I came out as a shy boy
You should've seen my score
If I had seen my potential
I could have scored much more

Now I tried to speak with silence
I didn't make much noise
Now I tried to speak in silence
I didn't make much noise
All it seemed to get me
Was more respect from all the boys

Now I tried the suffering artist
That didn't bring me much
Now I tried the suffering artist
That didn't bring me much
Well I began to wonder
Could I be losing my touch?

Well I ain't never tried my hardest
I only done my best
I ain't never tried my hardest
I only done my best
If you'd like to push
me
I'm sure I'd find the rest

I may never get to heaven
I didn't read that book
I may never get to heaven
I didn't read that book
But at least I had one woman
Who gave me one sweet look
