there's not a thing you can do
with the extra sock hanging over your head
when you've already got two
we all know it takes two to tango
so I'll just dance my way out of your life
but I have no other place to go
a crowd consists of few
and a couple is company
so I guess I'm meant to lose.
You could say I'm a third wheel
because that's exactly how I feel
so I'll make this my last appeal -
I know you are used to being a bicycle
but let me be the third wheel on your tricycle.
