Call Me Irresponsible
Eddie Fisher Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Call me irresponsible,
Yes I'm unreliable,
Throw in undependable too!
Do my foolish alibis bore you?
Well I'm not too clever, I just adore you!

Call me unpredictable,
Tell me I'm impractical,
Rainbows I'm inclined to pursue!
Call me irresponsible,
Yes I'm unreliable,
But it's undeniably true
I'm irresponsibly mad for you!

Call me irresponsible,
Yes I'm unreliable,




But it's undeniably true
I'm irresponsibly mad for you!
