Really - Nellie McKay

Am I sad
not sad enough really
am I mad
not mad enough clearly
am I
complacent
completely
lacking in sincerity
yes indeed I am
am I tough
not tough enough really
am I rough
not rough enough nearly
am I lying here
on the ground
watching you get pushed around
yes indeed I am
really
I don't know why
I'm such a wimp
I realize
I'm just your pimp
but what can I do
what can I do

am I small
not small enough really
I feel lame and cirumspect
I feel your pain and yet
I feel sympathy
empathy
it's just that I'm super busy right now
really

I don't know why
I'm such a sh_t
I realize
this doesn't help a bit
but what can I do
what can I do

am I bad
not bad enough really
I feel angry and upset
I could write you a small check
look I wish you luck
and here's you're buck
it's just that I'm a yuppie f_ck
yes indeed I am
really
