Pete Townshend - You're So Clever Lyrics

You're so clever, so smooth and debonair
You're so clever, and you never seem to have a care
You grew unflustered by storms or humid sticky weather
Oh, you're so clever, oh

You're so different, and a thousand in the red
You're so instant, snap your finger and light for my cigarette
I been busted by your charm when we're together
Oh, you're so clever, oh yeah

I mean it
You're so perfect
You always choose the big ones
I seen you
On the dance floor
And you keep that perfect time
There's no one I want but you
I mean forever, I mean forever
You're so clever

Oh, you're a genesis

Everything that ever gets me hot
I'm reeling, you cause my nemesis
You're everything I want and all I got
There's no one I want but you
And I mean forever
And I mean forever
You're so clever

You're so open
So straight, but never plain
So gently spoken
I'm not joking, your smile can stop the rain
I'm going to muster strength, and chase you ever leather
You, you're so clever
Yes, you, you're so clever
Yes, you, you're so clever
Yes, you, you're so clever

    I bought this album when it 1st came out. it was ok i suppose. but i love it now; especially this tune. Wish I'd kept it. And the letter I wrote to him and his reply... ah. never mind.

  4. Devon Langbein

    Me too! I've also heard that The Who did a full band version of 'Blue, Red and Grey'. I would have loved to hear that!

  5. Devon Langbein

    I wanna say this is the Scoop remaster from 2006, but I'm not sure of the date because I don't have the CD right in front of me at the moment (it's back home at my parents' house right now--I'm in college). I also had to do some funny things at the time to get around copyright... Anyway, the CD itself sounds excellent--highly recommended!

  6. RupertDCD27

    And I'm glad she did :D Pete's voice is perfect for it :)

  7. TheArsenalgooner

    she was dick to pass on both songs.

  8. viewerenthusiast

  9. breachborn

    @WizardGlik this is AMAZING!! Like it could have gotten any better.
    Good 'Un

  10. Freddy Cellophane

    Christ this sounds great!

    A remaster?

  11. RupertDCD27

    Sounds better with Pete singing. Imagine if Bette Midler was singing this or "And I Moved" It really 'works' with Pete singing it! : D

    Margaret Gordy

    Never heard Pete wrote this for Bette Midler only " And I Moved"
    Yes he's so fucking clever!💜💜💜

  12. Todd LaBrie

    I always liked this too. Weird, but I do. Too bad he or (they) never used this this. I wonder how it would sound with real instruments and a kick ass band.
