On this track from Hatful of Hollow Morrissey claims “I know that I’m the most inept that ever stepped.”

She’s So High by Tai Bachman

The son of Randy Bachman of the Guess Who and Bachan Turner Overdrive scored a Top Ten hit in the Nineties with this tune, in which he asks, “What could a guy like me ever really offer?”

Sir Elton contributed this ballad, which concludes with the refrain “I’m not the man they think I am at home.”

Pete Townshend wrote the line, and Roger Daltrey delivered it with all the power that made him the voice of the quartet. “My fine looking suit is really made out of sack,” the chorus explains.
