A cure for deafness, blindness, and sexlessness.

Biography

There once was a band in New York called We Can't Enjoy Ourselves. They were young, energetic, and happy; one day they abandoned their matronly motown sound for the sake of a younger genre; they loved, but they were not loved. Their lives ended in disaster.

Lyrics

Charming Man

Written By: Giovanni Saldarriaga

I'm just a rebel from the south
I tuck in the corners of my mouth
Please know I meant you no harm
Please know I meant you no harm

I often revel with the louts
with pressed lips into tortured pouts
Please Know I meant you no harm

Ain't I a charming man,
a disarming man,
Take a look at my hands
They're made for vows
not for one night stands
Please know I meant you no harm

I'm just a sweetheart unrefined
These heart to heart aren't in my line
You know you missed the alarms
You know you missed the alarms

I'm just a darling done in tweeds
unfit for your sentimental needs
You know you missed the alarms
You know you missed the alarms

Ain't I a charming man
A disarming man
Take a look at these hands
They're made for rows
Not for one night stands
Please know I meant you no harm

You and me dear are so removed from home
But we can't be expected to stay up on the phone
Oh but what else are we to do
at all the wildly unscripted parts

With the sweat on our sleeves
we're so perfumed with dust
it strikes so strange the stolid stench of lust
but what else are we to do with such wild and such radiant hearts
