Lyrics:

I'm just a troll, a troll so enamored
With a man who speaks with that annoying stammer
In spite of his yammering and habits thereof
I wish there was a way to express my love

I've not been one for shows of affection
They're always taken in some awful direction
And uh, since I'm a troll and he's a human
Well I've got no template for wooing acumen

Now that I'm comfy with the time that I spend
Happy to be with him until the bitter end
Paradox space so cruelly descends
He's having a baby and the baby's my friend

Oh I'm just a troll, a troll so enamored
WIth a man who has- pff- zero manners
And just when I was poised to get used to him
Reality reminded me it's just too grim

But wishing my heart with a fatal twist
That I could love him in domestic bliss
But what I wanted wasn't goddamn this
Things weren't supposed to go amiss

But when you imagine a dispute of the heart
Something to drive two lovers apart
In the books that I read when I was a grub
There were strpies like passion and conflict and love

But in those tomes over which I pored
Reading about the quadrants that I adored
It wasn't a whisper or even a maybe
Of your boyfriend having his best friend's baby

[Pensive trumpet solo.]

I'm just a troll, a troll so enamored
Of a boy I can't help but chase after
Gestating my buddy in his gravid womb
I can't let this be Davekat's doom

I'm just a troll, a troll so enamored
With a man who speaks with that annoying stammer
In spite of his yammering and habits thereof
I wish there was a way to express my love
