John Grant Lyrics


You could probably say I'm difficult
I probably talk too much
I over-analyze and over-think things
Yes it's a nasty crutch

I'm usually only waiting for you to stop talking
So that I can
Concerning two-way streets I have to say
That I am not a fan

But I am the greatest motherfucker
That you're ever gonna meet
From the top of my head
Down to the tips of the toes on my feet
So go ahead and love me while it's still a crime
And don't forget you could be laughing
Sixty five percent more of the time
You could be laughing
Sixty five percent more of the time

Half of the time I think I'm in some movie
I play the underdog of course
I wonder who'll they'll get to play me, maybe
They could dig up Richard Burton's corpse

I am not who you think I am
I am quite angry which I barely can conceal
You think I hate myself, it's you I hate
Because you have the nerve to make me feel

But I am the greatest motherfucker
That you're ever gonna meet
From the top of my head
Down to the tips of the toes on my feet
So go ahead and love me while it's still a crime
And don't forget you could be laughing
Sixty five percent more of the time
You could be laughing
Sixty five percent more of the time

I should've practiced my scales
I should not be attracted to males
But you said that I should learn to love myself
Well, make up your mind, Dr. Frankenstein

I am the greatest motherfucker
That you're ever gonna meet
From the top of my head
Down to the tips of the toes on my feet
So go ahead and love me while it's still a crime
And don't forget you could be laughing
Sixty five percent more of the time
You could be laughing
Sixty five percent more of the time

'Cause I am the greatest motherfucker
That you're ever gonna meet
From the top of my head
Down to the tips of the toes on my feet
So go ahead and love me while it's still a crime
And don't forget you could be laughing
Sixty five percent more of the time
You could be laughing
Sixty three percent more of the time
You could be laughing
Twenty five percent more of the time

just re-watched this video yesterday and it really struck me the sadness and loneliness it depicts....trying to be social, but not quite fitting in......putting yourself out there and still alone no matter what. It's a huge demonstration of a solitary and sad life, carrying on in necessity - sometimes happy enough, sometimes very alone. It was the saddest saddest thing to watch when I really did.

@Lars Erik Vestergaard I'm slowly going thru his discography after getting into him only a month or so ago. He's wonderful and definitely one of the best songwriters alive today.

@Brandon Pernice Spot on! The "problem" with great songwriters, who dare to use irony or sarcasm, is that more often than not, the intention goes WHOOOSH over peoples heads, but at the same time, it's the quality that sets them above the usual, literal "boy meets girl and slips on a bananapeel" kind a lyricists. I love Grant, because he doesn't assume you have the mental and emotional maturity of a 10 year old.

@Ryan DeFrees Hm, I read the "you could be laughing 65% more of the time" line as kinda farcical, a joke. Sounds to me like something out of some article that perhaps John happened by one day and was like "what?" and stuck it away in his head. What really makes me feel that this line isn't meant to be taken seriously or as actual advice, is both the specificity of "65% more of the time" and that the line begins with "and don't forget..." which I feel Grant delivers with a sort of mock seriousness.

Awesome song and I am falling in love with this man and his music.

Mark Crooks

The song actually ends on a positive because the percentage of his self loathing goes down, meaning he is more comfortable in his own skin. I think it's an incredibly up lifting song

Such an underrated musician. He helped me realize I was gay and to come out of the closet.
