Mayor Of Simpleton

by XTC

Lyrics

Never been near a university,
Never took a paper or a learned degree,
And some of your friends think that's stupid of me,
But it's nothing that I care about.

@cerpin47 when this first played I thought it was Gin Blossoms. I am surprised XTC didn't sue them.

I was at the Victory brewery a couple weeks ago... I went into the bathroom and this song was playing! I got real happy lol

Sounds like the Gin Blossoms had some XTC influence.
