lyrics

I'm on tenterhooks
To how you're gonna make things better
It doesn't take a genius to see

I've been waking up
To a better way to get along together
And I'm not in the mood for forgiving much
I'm already losing my touch

There's nothing you can tell me
That I don't already know
'cos I'd get more education if I taped it off the radio

Your words don't count for nothing
Just like footsteps in the snow
But i'd get more education if I taped it off the radio

So whatcha wanna talk about?
Cos you've got time to kill, and money to burn
And plenty of ways to ponder your return

And I heard you tried to put the genius into disingenuous
Even though you've since gone ex-directory
You're still not spelling correctly

There's nothing you can tell me
That I don't already know
'cos I'd get more education if I taped it off the radio

Your words don't count for nothing
Just like footsteps in the snow
But i'd get more education if I taped it off the radio

I can't get to sleep tonight
Because my head's not fit for dreaming
The street outside's been silent as the grave

And if you gonna do something wrong
You might as well do it right
Or else you're under achieving
'Cos I'm not in the mood for forgiving yet
I've got nothing left to regret

There's nothing you can tell me
That I don't already know
'cos I'd get more education if I taped it off the radio

There's nothing you can tell me
That I don't already know
'cos I'd get more education if I taped it off the radio

Your words don't count for nothing
Just like footsteps in the snow
But i'd get more education if I taped it off the radio
