Lyrics for A Capable Man by Man & The Echo:

I have successfully challenged parking fines with my persuasive rhetoric
If a man with a van needs backing out, you better know that I’m on it
I drive my high performance family car with apparent joie de vivre
I am for small state, low tax, up by the bootstraps, I voted leave

I am a capable man
I am a capable man

With what I save through various loyalty schemes, we have two city breaks a year
That’s on top of the family holiday, a fortnight in Gran Canaria
I have insurance coming out my arse so no low life can touch me
I am a hard working top performer at work, yeah my bosses all love me

But you just seem lost to me, you just seem lost to me
Yeah you just seem lost to me, you just seem lost to me

I carry out small home repair jobs to near professional standards
I make simple hearty pub style grub and I drink from a tankard
If my son was gay or brought a black girl home I would be just fine with it
In fact that absolutely goes without saying, though I should point out he isn’t
And hasn’t

I am a tolerant man
I am a tolerant man

But you just seem lost to me, you just seem lost to me
Yeah you just seem lost to me, you just seem lost to me

I had a brief blip a few years ago, it barely merits a mention
A mild existential crisis, a slight bout of depression
But after six weeks crying every day I took a look in the mirror
I said sort yourself out, buck yourself up my boy, you’re a winner

I was a delicate man
Are we all delicate men?

No, you just seem lost to me, you just seem lost to me
Yeah you just seem lost to me, you just seem lost to me
