I Don't Wanna Be Funny Anymore

by Lucy Dacus



single from unreleased album "No Burden" coming out on Egghunt Records late February 2016


I don't wanna be funny anymore.
I don't wanna be funny anymore.
Lately, I've been feeling like the odd man out.
I hurt my friends saying things I don't mean out loud.

I don't wanna be funny anymore.
I got a too short skirt, maybe I can be the cute one.
Is there room in the band? I don't need to be the front man.
If not, then I'll be the biggest fan.

I don't want the joke to be on me.
Yeah, I'll buy the clothes and I'll be the best dressed.
Yeah, I'll read the books and I'll be the smartest.
I'll play guitar and I'll be the artist.

Try not to laugh.
I know it'll be hard.
I'm serious.
I know it's a first but...

I don't wanna be funny anymore.
Yeah, I'll be the gossip, hear it through the grape vine.
Pass it on, she's done with the old times.
That funny girl doesn't wanna smile for a while.
