Mayor of Simpleton//XTC

I can’t have been there when brains were handed round
Or get past the cover of your books profound
And some of your friends
Think it’s really unsound that you’re even seen talking to me

Well, I don’t know how to write a big hit song
And all crossword puzzles, well I just shun
And I may be the mayor of Simpleton
But I know one thing and that’s I love you

I could have just as easily posted “Senses Working Overtime” from 1982. XTC is one of those bands that probably never got as much recognition as they should have. Some profound lyrics between them and I love their pseudo-psychedelia sound. Like Beatles on… heavier drugs?
