  • I'm sorry to have been so much of a bore
    But in my own funny way I find I learn much more.
    I realize what you think from your eyes,
    But in your own funny way I find I learn much more.

    My ways are strange
    They'll never change
    They stay, strange ways
    I'm sorry to have been so close from the start,
    But for all that I cared we could be miles apart.

    I understood that you never would
    Understand a way of life that I never could.

    My ways are strange
    They'll never change
    They stay, strange ways
    Go your own way or wait for me
    Go your own way or wait for me
    Go your own way or wait for me
    Go your own way or wait for me
    And so you see what happened to me

    Since the time when I judged my life in nights and days
    I realized that my life was lies
    So you see what I mean with all my funny ways.

    I'm sorry to have been so much of a bore
    But in my own funny way I find I learn much more
    Funny ways, Funny ways, Funny ways, Funny ways. Writer/s: DEREK SHULMAN, KERRY MINNEAR, PHILIP SHULMAN, RAYMOND SHULMAN
