Song Description

Disco-influenced track with modern elements. About a vain, manipulative "player" or conman who may be running out of luck. Full-length version also available. From Worldview's "Schoolboy Errors" album. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

This man in the long black coat
His life an eternal pose
Hustling for what he's owed
And that to him means everything

Rehearsed at all your moves
People are pawns to you
And the lucky ones get used
To service your lust for applause

And at first that applause is deafening
But the problem is you're not genuine
And be sure there will come a reckoning

Cos you can't win 'em all
You can't win 'em all
You can't win 'em all
You can't win 'em all
You won't win 'em all
You won't win 'em all
Oh you're good but you're not that good

I could act just like you
I see them coming too
But it is not my groove
To shake them down or take them down

With the aura of the invincible
And a manner that's irresistible
And a bottomless pit of tricks to pull

But you can't win 'em all
You can't win 'em all
You won't win 'em all
You won't win 'em all

When we get the feeling someone's not quite right
We're probably right
When we get the feeling we've been shown a scam
We probably have

I'm seeing right through you
I know you know it too
And in an instant you'll be rolling back from your bold attack

I'm a useful guy to know
But too late your chance is blown
I'm going make you learn the easy way
Lying doesn't pay

Cos you think you can hoodwink any soul
And your methods are undetectable
But you're nothing if not predictable

Cos you can't win 'em all
You can't win 'em all
You can't win 'em all
You can't win 'em all
You won't win 'em all
You won't win 'em all
No you're good but you're not that good
