I Am Rubber (You Are Glue)

David Nelson Ostrosser


Sunshine pop inspired by Small Circle of Friends, but more what I imagined SCF to be - I'd ordered the album but hadn't received it yet!


You call me a loser, Claim I've got no empathy
Too much of a boozer, How did you end up with me?
Well I don't know if what you say is true
But I've got just one thing to say to you


I am rubber, you are glue
Everything you say, bounces off me
And sticks to you

Already you're harpin', The minute that I get back home
You can't wait to start in, Complainin' to your mother on the telephone
Well I don't care what they may think of me
Or how you put me down relentlessly


You think you can hurt me with your words And so you try
But I just sit here thinkin' Well that's you but what am I?

I’ve got no motivation
If people could hear you talk
I'm leadin the nation
In goofin' off around the clock
And though it does get to me now and then
You're just talkin' 'bout yourself again
