Dishonest Modesty Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You come on strong telling everyone
About your latest role
How you saved the movie, stole the show
So you've been told

And if you have no time for all your offers
You'll see that I get called
And if you have no time for all your men
You'll see that I get balled

Well, I don't expect humility
But what about some good old
Dishonest modesty?

You say that you can understudy
All the other parts
That you can write a song that will make us cry
And touches all our hearts

And you can House and Garden
Vogue and Glamour, Mademoiselle
Well, I know you can Bitch and Screw
And Penthouse just as well

No, I don't expect humility
But what about some good old
Dishonest modesty?

You try to be unique
But somehow something's wrong
'Cause your flower childish vision of life
Cannot last too long

You're over thirty and underweight
Though you call yourself petite
And you hang around with all the clowns
Who think they're so elite

Well, I don't expect humility
But what about some good old
Dishonest modesty?
