You're always looking at me sideways
Wondering what galaxy I'm from

What on earth do I need to prove to you?
When everything that you already think is true

I'm not normal
Not a regular guy
If I was run of the mill I wouldn't catch your eye
I'm not normal
And I'm not afraid
To hate sports on TV drinking beer and trying to get laid
That's what I'm talking about
If you were ever in doubt
I'm not the normallest guy in town

You're always laughing at me baby
You think my dreams are far away

But I won't settle for less than I deserve
I can only be a failure if I lack the nerve
And act

Just like a regular guy
And put my pants on baby one leg at a time
If I was Normal
Would you still think I was strange
To have a steady job and earn a living wage each day
That's what you're dreaming about
If it was ever in doubt
I'd be as normal as the day is long
And I'd even write you
A happy song

I could snicker and sneer and put on airs
But the fact is I need someone who cares
Just not whether we're
We could be irony-free
And then I'd love you
And you could try to love me too

You'd be the queen of the prom
And then I'd be the king
And I'd love you till you never come down
I'd date girls my own age
And wear my hair real short
And never ever change my taste
Just an average joe
And you'd think I was fine
And you'd tell me so
I would know
From the sound of your voice
If there was ever a choice
You'd love the least normal guy in town
So tell me how can I be down?
