The open F tuning of this song was inspired by the slack key tradition of Hawai'i.

lyrics

SHY

Shucks, folks, I guess I’m speechless
I think the lion’s got my tongue
When I was younger, in social situations
I was so much braver than today

Why don’t you pick on someone your own size?
Why do you have to talk to me?
Can’t you see I’m suffering a painful case of shyness? What am I doing at this party?

I’m shy. I’m shy, so shy.

When I’m at home in my own kitchen
I am not bashful nor timid
It’s only at these gatherings of influential people who are schmoozing as if they were born to mingle!

I’m shy. I’m shy, so shy.

My mother says I’m self-effacing
My sweetheart says I’m just reserved
Someday I will converse with anyone who speaks to me, and shine with all the prowess I deserve.

I’m shy. . . I’m shy, so shy.
I don’t know why but I’m shy.
