lyrics

So today's the day I finally bridge the strait
Of Charybdis and Scylla
Dividing secrets of my heart
Disobey instinct and circumnavigate
The 800 lb gorilla
Forever keeping us apart
And I've bet the farm I won't end up harming
The lady cradled in my arm
While you journey up to me

So I guess I've been playing hard to get
What with these springs and barrels
To be or not to be beset
By Cupid's slings and arrows
But I think it's time
For you to find out
What you haven't found out yet
That I'm not so hard to get

I got my big brother's plan to imitate
Followed almost to the letter
One decoy girl to apprehend
Gonna try now to ascend the Empire State
With the consequences better
I'll get my plumber in the end
It's not so simple to scale Olympus
But you inspire this humble chimp
To embrace our destiny

And I guess I've been playing hard to get
What with these springs and barrels
To be or not to be beset
By Cupid's slings and arrows
But I think it's time
For you to find out
What you haven't found out yet
That I'm not so hard to get

I'm not some raiding faun to your Diana
I want to know what makes you you
I feel there's flavors here besides banana
And I feel you feel it too

And I know you dream of honor's greater share
Like Henry and his neighbors
Your battle all the fates demand
Set aglow your heart as guide, and don't despair
The Sisyphean labors
You will endure to win my hand
Then we'll discover the secret of the
Ones who inspire songs of love
And touch immortality

And I guess I've been playing hard to get
What with these springs and barrels
To be or not to be beset
By Cupid's slings and arrows
But I think it's time
For you to find out
What you haven't found out yet
That I'm not so hard to get
That I'm not so hard to get
I'm not so hard to get
I'm just not so hard to get
I'm not so hard to get
