I don't have a reputation
Falling faster all the time
Help me make my reputation
I'll help yours if you'll help mine
My clothes are too big for my body
My body's too big for my mind
I don't like humiliation
I can change my clothes
But I don't think I'll change my mind
Hey look! I just bought a beach house
So bring all your friends along
I don't need an explanation
Boss says I must leave right now
Take the night plane to Vermont
Here I go, I'm swinging low
Move out of my way
Come and take a look at what I've found
Here I am, I've got a plan
Don't walk away
My reputation follows me around
Once there was a girl in New York
Wonder where that girl has gone
She was full of adulation
I tried to phone her
Strange the number turns out wrong
I've got all I ever wanted
But what I've got, no-one wants to share
They turned down my application
Please won't you let me in
Seems like no-one ever cares
