That Guy

Does anyone know that weird guy over there?
He's been here all night, just to drink and to stare!
Does anyone know who invited him here?
He gives me the creeps with his grin and his leer!
He's been nursing that drink for well over an hour
His hair is so greasy, and he needs a shower!
Everyone else is just dancing and talking
He hasn't moved once; I think that he's stalking!
Not anyone here even knows this guy's name
How'd he get in here and what is his game?
He's holding that cig like he thinks it's seductive
Doesn't he know that it's counterproductive?
Oh my God! Really?!! He gave me a wink
Now I feel dizzy-hey, what's in this drink?
I think that I'd better just go and lie down
If he comes near me, I'll puke on that clown!
