A commentary track about pretentious know-it-alls.

lyrics

Verse 1
My lady's a beauty but she's a bit daft
If not for her bosom she'd confuse fore for aft.
When she called my ship a boat I felt some dismay
But when she called my gears cogs I couldn't let it slip away.

Chorus
A gear may have cogs but a cog is not a gear.
Like a queen may have a crown but a crown makes not a queen.
All gears may have cogs but no cog is a gear.
Some things go together but they are not the same thing.

Verse 2
My lady's so lovely but she's a bit dim.
If I don't open the door she'd never find her way in.
We've courted for months but she can't recall my name
Calling me "that fellow" rather throws me off my game.

Chorus
A gear may have cogs but a cog is not a gear.
Like a king may have a crown but a crown makes not a king.
All gears may have cogs but no cog is a gear.
Some things go together but they are not the same thing.

Verse 3
My lady's not brilliant but she's got some sass
When she caught me with her sister she booted me in the ass.
I know a bastard when I see one, she angrily said.
For once in her life she hit the nail on the head.

Chorus 3
A gear may have cogs but a cog is not a gear.
Like a king without a queen is not much of a king.
All gears may have cogs but no cog is a gear.
Some things without each other don't mean a damn thing.
