Lyrics:

The boy’s got brains
He just don’t use ‘em, that’s all
The boy’s got brains
He just refuse to use ‘em and that’s all
He says, “The more I get to thinking
The less I tend to laugh”
The boy’s got brains
He just abstains

The boy’s got a heart
But it beats on his opposite side
It’s a strange phenomenon
The laws of nature denied
He said, “It’s a chance I had to take
So I shifted my heart for its safety’s sake”
The boy’s got a heart but it beats on
His opposite

Oh, Marion
I think I’m in trouble here
I should’ve believed you
When I heard you saying it
The only time
That love is an easy game
Is when two other people
Are playing it

The boy’s got a voice
But the voice is his natural disguise
Yes the boy’s got a voice
But his words don’t connect to his eyes
He says, “Ah, but when I sing
I can hear the truth auditioning”
The boy’s got a voice
But the voice is his natural

Oh, Marion
I think I’m in trouble here
I should’ve believed you
When I heard you saying it
The only time
That love is an easy game
Is when two other people
Are playing it
