lyrics

d'ye recall that man?
he was the every-man, and now he's
box-office poison

he currently resides
in a dusty file
that is marked:
"Where are they now?"

the wheel has turned and now I lose
I got the Steve
Guttenberg Blues

Nice-guy story arcs no longer in vogue-
must re-invent self as a loveable rogue

Remember me?
I was that guy
you once rooted for-
but not anymore

currently resides
in a dusty aisle
in the bargain bin basement
of your local Wal-Mart

the wheel has turned and now I lose
I got the Steve
Guttenberg Blues

Nice-guy story arcs no longer in vogue-
must re-invent self as a loveable rogue

crestfallen, forgotten
uninvited, overlooked

I got the Steve
Guttenberg Blues
the wheel of life has turned
and now I lose

Nice-guy story arcs no longer in vogue-
must re-invent self as a loveable rogue

the wheel has turned and now I lose
I got the Steve
Guttenberg Blues
