I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer
Or the brightest bulb in the box
I never heard an opera but I know the score
I’m crazy, I’m crazy like a fox

I don’t need to buy a clue
When it comes to loving you

I’m the smartest man I know
There’s nowhere I won’t go to make you see
You mean the whole wide world to me
And maybe baby I’m a little bit slow
But move over Einstein I’m Romeo
I’m the smartest man I know

Well nuclear physics that’s Greek to me
And I don’t understand the new math
When it comes to love I got a PhD
You taught me all I know about that

Plenty of things I don’t know how to do
But I did somethin’ right when I fell for you

I’m the smartest man I know
There’s nowhere I won’t go to make you see
You mean the whole wide world to me
And maybe baby I’m a little bit slow
But move over Einstein I’m Romeo
I’m the smartest man I know

I’m just a few fries short of a happy meal
A couple cards short of a deck
But i can tell when something’s real
I know you’re the butter on my bread
