The Divine Comedy

Here’s a truly epic song by The Divine Comedy- a pop band from Northern Ireland, fronted by songwriter Neil Hannon (thank you, Wikipedia). Turn up the volume, people. If this isn’t pure awesomeness- pure awesomeness doesn’t exist:

Bad Ambassador

Lyrics

I wanna chill, I wanna sit real still
I wanna sleep like the dead on a bed of roses
Me and my lovely wife
We’re in the prime of life
I wanna feel real, I wanna free-wheel
I wanna steal the show from under their noses
I wanna get you off
Well, ain’t that enough?
I’m gonna abseil down my ivory tower
And buy myself a Jaguar

I’m a bad ambassador for that elusive place you’re searching for
I wanna show you so much more… but maybe some other time

I wanna play with the big boys
I wanna ride with the tough guys on a Japanese motorbike
I wanna hold your hand
Hey, what’s your favorite band?
Honey, I wanna look like they look
I wanna shake like they shook, I wanna take what they took
I wanna get you high
Don’t ask me why
It’s just something I’ve got to do
I’ll try to make it up to you

I’m a bad ambassador for that elusive place you’re searching for
I wanna show you so much more… but maybe some other time

Well, I’m not the Pope and I don’t wanna be the Archbishop of Canterbury

I’m a bad ambassador for that elusive place you’re searching for
I wanna show you so much more
Yeah, I could show you so much more
But I’m a bad ambassador

Well, maybe some other time…
