Not Everybody's Cup of Tea

When I try to please you, I try too hard
I do dumb things, though I may be smart 
Stand on my head, think of clever things to say
But you just turn and walk away
So what?  So what? You don't like me
So what? I've got to let it be
Why take it personally?
I'm not everybody's cup of tea

Wrote a song from the heart
Stood on your lawn after dark
Sang up to your window with all I got
But you hit me on the head with a flower pot
So what?  So what? You don't like me
So what? We're not meant to be
The lump has gone down, and now I see
I'm not everybody's cup of tea

My whole life I've been writing songs
Some folks like 'em, some folks don't
Ain't never had a hit, never made much dough
But my dog listens to me on the radio
So what?  So what? You don't like me
So what? My dog howls when I hit high "E"
A million seller I'll never be
I'm not everybody's cup of tea

Politically we don't get along
I lean left, you lean wrong
Yes we're diametrically opposed
And you never "like" a thing I post
So what? So what? You don't like me
So what? We never will agree
Politically, philosophically
I'm not everybody's cup of tea

Well that's life, it's alright with me 
I'm not everybody's cup of tea
So what?
