Lyrics

You flippant little man
so good at criticizing
you hold me in your arms
and then you head for the horizon

You flippant little man
lie to her you lie to me
say you want to see me
leave me dangle on a string

I gave you pieces of myself
wouldn't give to any other
all the soul and words and music
that you pitched into the gutter

You flippant little man
your words don't mean a thing
you slap me in the face
with talk of fever in the spring

So I'll just walk on by
pretend you never hold held me
remember that the words you said
were lies to wrap around me

You flippant little man
your hollow words that ring
inside my head I know
you were just fever in the spring

You flippant little man
your hollow words that ring
inside my head I know
you were just fever in the spring
