    I used to sing this song to my eldest son when he was an infant.
    He was born in 1996, hope he got some half decent taste in music before I died.

    I wasn’t the outdoor type either till I bought a tent in 2007 and made myself one. No tips or tricks from others, I just got out there and had a go. After hiking in New Zealand, Tasmania, Peru, Switzerland, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Iceland and elsewhere i wouldn’t take anything back. Evan should’ve had a crack. But his song is still great, I love it, such a 90s classic. And I can’t go on rock climbing weekends either because I’m afraid of heights

    Always had a roof above me
    Always paid the rent
    But I've never set foot inside a tent
    Can't build a fire to save my life
    I lied about being the outdoor type

    I've never slept out underneath the stars,
    The closest that I came to that was one time my car
    Broke down for an hour in the suburbs at night
    I lied about being the outdoor type.

    Too scared to let you know you knew what you were looking for
    I lied until I fit the bill god bless the great indoors
    I lied about being the outdoor type
    I've never owned a sleeping bag let alone a mountain bike

    I can't go away with you on a rock climbing weekend
    What if somethings on tv and its never shown again
    Its just as well I'm not invited I'm afraid of heights
    I lied about being the outdoor type

    Never learned to swim can't grow a beard or even fight
    I lied about being the outdoor type

    I like camping with my motorbike, we've also got a tiny caravan, I think the Lemonheads are a brilliant band though. & my late dad was called Ray. I used to sing the song to him.

    I have a huge love for this song despite being a roughy toughy outdoorsy type. Go figure…..

    What a shame the Lemonheads never really made it big outside of a small, but loyal following. Great band, great lyrics.

    I love this song.  This one ranks in my mind with Meatloaf's "Two outta three ain't bad" for songs that just made me split my seams with laughter when i heard the punch-line chorus

    Miranda Tessore, I can't reply to your comment directly but it's a song about pretending to be something you're not because you think it'll be more attractive to someone else, then confessing that wasn't you all along. A catchy and fairly universal song that most people can probably identify with.

    Perhaps this surprisingly honest admission was cast as a song because I think Dando identifies himself as a neo-hippie and hippies are supposed to be comfortable and one w/ Nature.
