Lyrics

I am Natsuko Tayama
The shy soul sister
I got a whole list of
Things on my chest
I want to express
But I'm too shy
To talk to a guy
So I don't even try

'cause I'm shy
Superfly!

Well my face goes flush
I flash a goofy grin
I stammer and I stutter
Don't know where to begin
And I don't change much after sake or gin
(She don't change much after sake or gin)
When I'm on the mic
You can stop right there
I've never been anywhere near
I wouldn't dare
'cause I'm shy
Well you can stop right there!

Superfly!

You know I skipped off school
Too shy for knowledge
I studied silent film when I went to college
Like Andy Warhol and Jonas Mekas
We'd like to be transparent
You can look but don't touch
Or we'll kick your ass!

'cause we're the shy class
Superfly!

I'm Natsuko Tayama
I find there's glamour
In being a wallflower
With a stammer
I love what I am
And you won't change me
So take me how I am
Baby!

'cause I'm super-shy
Superfly!

Well people make quiver
And people make me shiver
Loud people make me want to jump in a river
'cause I'm shy
Here come the tongue-twister

Well I'm shy, mister!
Ha! Superfly!

Well you know
people make quiver
And people make me shiver
Loud people make me want to jump in a river
I can't pluck up the courage to flirt
I'm the world champion heavyweight introvert

I'm shy
Superfly!

'cause I'm Natsuko Tayama
I find there's glamour
In being a wallflower
With a stammer
I love what I am
I'm the best
Funk the rest!

'cause I'm shy
Superfly!
