lyrics

HEY LOOK AT ME!

-----( 1st verse )-------------------------
A house call from Dr. Seuss
for you, I am here to amuse
Not afraid to look like a fool
it's an everyday ritual
I don't have to be the best
if I can just pass your test
--------------------
Lord, it's hard to be humble
behind a bowl of fruit I could juggle
Can do a double back flip
at you, straight from the hip
Always keeping my cool
diving into a pool
( D, A, Bm, G ) ( D, A, D ) //

-----( chorus )----------------------------------------
Hey there, won't you look at me
the center of attention as you can see
Spent my whole lifetime on this quest
without a moments rest
( F#m, Bm ) /// ( E7, A7 )

------( 2nd verse )-------------------------
I can tell you some jokes
for all the laughter I can soak
Now don't be cruel
out there on your bar stool
It's only in jest
where I come from out west
--------------------
I'm playin' round town
in my Thrift Town button downs
When the place is packed
my mind gets hijacked
There’s no time to be shy
up on stage, where I'm high
( D, A, Bm, G ) ( D, A, D ) //
( to chorus )

-----( 3rd verse )-------------------------
The secret to my success
if I were to take a guess
To see your smiling faces
on a one to one basis
Stepping up to the mound
for your entertainment value, per pound
--------------------
You may ask me why
I leave you no place to hide
Always workin' my new schtick
for me it's intrinsic
A simple inquiry
how can I make you love me
( D, A, Bm, G ) ( D, A, D )
( to chorus )
