Numpty
Paolo Nutini Lyrics


Hey, la, la, la
Building a house so we can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!

Hmm, now that I'm young I just do what I do
I don't second guess too much.
Shed my ties and I'm not that wise
I'm all grown up as such.
But all the talk about the ring and the baby
Gets me every time
Am I big enough, strong enough to walk along your line?
Yeah, baby

Building a house so we can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!

You see, I'm always on the hustle
That I don't know just how good I get it
That it's plenty of men out there with money and muscle
Look at these hips, baby, don't you forget them
Oh, but the curls will go, the money will spend
What we left within the end?
She's more than happy, she's taken her play
I'm saying, 'who's that bitch with my second name? '

Oh, he's building a house so we can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!

Yeah, baby, truth be told
I'm only trying to keep my head above the water
Responsibility, turn on monogamy,
I'm not a father, child
Are you a mother, are you?
Uh, my pride and joy
Yeah, you, you are my pride and joy!

Oh, building a house so we can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!
Yeah, baby,
Building a house so we can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!

Hey, la, la
La, la
Yeah
Building a house so it can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!

Hmm, now that I'm young I just do what I do
I don't second guess too much.
Shed my ties and I'm not that wise
I'm not all grown up as such.
But all the talk about the ring and the baby
Gets me every time
Am I big enough, strong enough, to walk along your line?
Yeah, baby

Building a house so it can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!

You say, I'm always on the hustle
That I don't know just how good I get it
And that there's plenty of men out there with money and muscle
"Look at these hips, baby, don't you forget them"
Oh, but the curves all go, the money we'll spend
What we're left with in the end,
Oh she's wantin' half and she's staking her claim
I'm saying, 'who's that bitch with my second name? '

Oh, cause building a house so it can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!

Yeah, baby, truth be told
I'm only trying to keep my head above the water
Responsibility, eternal monogamy,
Ah I'm not a father, child
Are you a mother, are you?
Oh, my pride and joy
Yeah you, you are my pride and joy!

Yeah, building a house so it can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!
Yeah, baby,
Building a house so it can fall at the first brick
If the cement don't stick
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!
But I've been told
That it only gets harder from there!
Eeeee uuuuuuuu

If this don't make you dance in your kitchen, I can't help you. This kid is like Sam Cooke, Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding and Joe Cocker rolled into a Cannoli. : DDD
Great stuff. If you like, check out Let Me Down Easy, One Day and Better Man.

My thoughts!

Unless the beginning of an eerie Taratino screenplay. This song would be brilliant ;)

Deborah Lee He even sounds like Ray Charles a bit! This guy really has a style about him and you can hear many of "the greats" in his voice. Love his stuff!
