I’m a clown with two left feet
A surgeon who's all thumbs
A singer with all the wrong notes

A runner with no feet
A funny man with no jokes
An author with no written words

And I seem to crush everything I get in my hands
I hope that you’ll listen up I hope you understand

I’m an artist with no ink
A sailor with no boat
A magician without any tricks

A traveler who stays home
A wrestler with no moves
A doctor without any cures

And I seem to crush everything I get in my hands
I hope that you listen up I hope you understand

I may say that it’s not my intention to destroy everything that I touch
but to say that I know my intention is probably saying too much

I’m a pilot with no plane
A soldier with no gun
A boxer who can't make a fist

A reader with no books
A builder with no tools
A farmer without any seed

I could say that the hand I’ve been dealt
Is the reason I'm not succeeding
I could say it’s written in the cards, the stars
and they’re never deceiving

I’m always saying too much
