Dishonest modesty Lyrics by Carly Simon

 

Dishonest modesty by Carly Simon


(Carly Simon/Zach Wiesner)
You come on strong telling everyone
About your latest role
How you saved the movie, stole the show
Well everybody knows
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 fashioned dishonest modesty
You say that you can understudy
All the other parts
You can write a song that will make us cry
that touches all our hearts
And you can House and Garden
Vogue and Glamour, Mademoiselle
But I know you can b**ch and Screw
And Penthouse just aswell
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 thrity and underweight
Though you call yourself petite
And you hang around with all the clowns
You think they're so elite
Well I don't expect humility
But what about some good old fashioned dishonest modesty
