An idea by Georgie for the shapes challenge Rockabillified up by me...

Lyrics: 

Feel like a square peg in a round hole
A wayward son and a long lost soul
Help me babe take back control
‘Cos I’m a, square peg in a round hole

Never felt I fitted in
Ever since I flitted in
From the seedy part of town
Where dirty deals were goin’ down
Thought I’d make my great escape
Attempt to get myself in shape
But all I get’s hostility
Folks lookin’ down their nose at me

Feel like a square peg in a round hole
A wayward son and a long lost soul
Help me babe take back control
‘Cos I’m a square peg in a round hole

Maybe I stared too long at you
Or was it my Elvis tattoo
‘Cos when I ordered drinks and stuff
My money wasn’t good enough
But then you saw something worthwhile
When I flashed my gold tooth smile
But we had to run hell for leather
When we left that lousy bar together

Like a square peg in a round hole
A wayward son and a long lost soul
Help me babe take back control
‘Cos I’m a square peg in a round hole

You’ve got the keys to your daddy’s car
I know a hideaway not that far
Let’s leave this godforsaken place
So we can cut directly to the chase

Feel like a square peg in a round hole
A wayward son and a long lost soul
Help me babe take back control
‘Cos I’m a square peg in a round hole

Like a square peg in a round hole
A wayward son and a long lost soul
Help me babe take back control
‘Cos I’m a square peg in a round hole

F#1 observes that this feels very Elvis, as is apropos for the genre. Very enjoyable song and great work, you two!
