lyrics

I don't watch PMQs as often as you might expect
I only live-tweet Question Time for comedic effect
I've never Virginia Woolf, or any Bertolt Brecht
And nobody knows that I'm a fraud
It's often been alleged that I'm as hard-left as can be
But my idea of "edgy" is an unknown brand of tea
And I'm not even veggige, let alone dairy free
And nobody knows that I'm a fraud

But I'll get up underneath the lights until I feel adored
And I'll never tell you anything I think you won't applaud
Oh it might not always be the truth, but it will have three chords
Nobody knows that I'm a fraud

Well dressing how I do I find I often get mistook
By graphic novel fans who judge me on the way I look
But I just like Batman shirts, I've never read a comic book
Nobody knows that I'm a fraud
When people call me a musician that makes my palms perspire
I took Grade I piano, and I never got no higher
If I didn't have this capo then you'd all see I'm a liar
Nobody knows that I'm a fraud

And some days I get so scared that we're losing
And some days I'm just so sure we'll never win
And some days I get so knackered from refusing to let that in

Well some days life feels like a play that you have not rehearsed
But one thing's true of all of us sharing this universe
Is we could all be doing better and we could all be doing worse
And everyone you know feels like a fraud

So come on and get up underneath the lights until you feel adored
But never tell them anything you think they won't applaud
Oh it might not always be the truth but it will have three chords
Nobody knows that I'm a fraud
Oh it might not always be the truth but it wil have three chords
And I guess I'll take up spoken word when I run out of chords
Because nobody knows that I'm a fraud
