about

An office love story about a megalomaniac geek who fancies the sandwich delivery girl. He thinks he's a super hero. She doesn't notice him at all.

I had definitely been listening to a lot of Chicago when I recorded this, which goes some way to explain the sweet 5-part harmonies. The remainder of the blame falls squarely on my teenage obsession with Queen.

Incidentally, this recording marks the moment when I decided I could actually play the guitar.

lyrics

I've got this funny feeling I'm a living legend
Nobody knows it but it's true
And you thought I was just like you

I have the same thing every Monday
Cheddar ploughmans and a bottle of pop
I love you, Monday sandwich girl
And I hope you never stop
Bringing me my lunch
Cos I've got a little hunch you like me too

That's why I have to tell you Sunday night
I saw you in the scariest dream
You had a jumper on that you'd never worn
And I swear that it was green
I though I'd lost my head
So I wrote it on a note by the side of my bed

I woke up on Monday morning
With a megasupernatural fear
When I saw you with that jumper on
It all became so clear
I can see through time
If you really want to know I can tell you I'm
A living legend

Never before have I let these powers be known
Not any more, I can't save the world alone
I think I'm a living legend
And I know just what it's like
To be so cool people think you're not
And when I try to make you see me there
Swinging on a swivel chair
You turn away
You don't know what to say to a living legend

I know to you this sounds like such an awful line
But I've been racking my brain
Tell me, sandwich lady
Will you be my Lois Lane?
What's it going to be?
I can really see a future for Lois and me

Was that a no I heard you mumble?
Oh. I thought that's what you said
I'll have my usual ploughmans then
Can I owe you a couple of quid?
I'll pay you back next week
Cheers. Thanks.

Never before have I let these powers be known
Not any more, I can't save the world alone
I know I'm a living legend
And I've got just what it takes
So never underestimate
Everything I can do - what would it take
For goodness' sake?
I see through time
Why can't you see that I'm a living legend?

I've got this funny feeling I'm a living legend
