Everyone has their foibles and quirks
Everyone has their deal
As for you you got more than your share
More than you want to reveal
You cause a whole lot of trouble, you do
You make a great big fuss
And every time that I point it out you say
It's not something you can discuss

If only you were someone else
If only you were someone else
If only you were someone else
Then I might love you more

Some people call you moody
Well that's a nice way to say that you're mean
You can really bite my head off
If you haven't had your morning caffeine
You say you calls 'em as you sees 'em
Too bad if we can't take the truth
You don't engage in small talk you say
You find that extremely uncouth

Well I love the cut of your gib
I love the way the way you say, "Take a hike"
I love how you can get away with murder
Too bad it's you I just don't like

Everyone's got their issues
Some have more than their share
You don't see that you have problems you say
Or if you do you just don't care

If only you were a little bit nicer
If only you had a bigger heart
If only you were a little less selfish
Well that would be a start
