I've flown around the world in a plane
I've settled revolutions in Spain
The North Pole I have charted
But I can't get started with you

And at the golf course I'm under par
And in Hollywood they want me to star
I've got a house as a show place
But I can't get no place with you

You're so supreme
The lyrics I write of you, scheme
Just for the sight of you, dream
Both day and night of you
But what good does it do

In nineteen ninety-nine, I sold short
In England, I'm presented at court
Yeah you've got me so downhearted
'Cause I'll never get started with you

You're so supreme
The lyrics I write of you, scheme
Just for the sight of you, dream
Both day and night of you
But what, what good does it do

I've been consulted by Hilary C.
And Tina Turner's had me to tea
But now I'm brokenhearted
'Cause I can't get started with you
Yeah I'm brokenhearted
'Cause I can't get started with you
