Who's That Song About?
It was twenty years ago today, that he taught the band to play
She died in the church and was buried along with her name
She can be followed down to a bridge by a fountain, where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies
In my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me, speaking words of wisdom
He left his home in Tucson Arizona, for some California grass
She thought she was a woman, but she was another man
She has children at her feet; and a baby at her breast
I took her out and tried to win her; had a laugh, and over dinner told her I would really like to see her again
For his benefit, there will be a show tonight on trampoline
They'll all be there, late of Pablo Fanque's fair
He'd be a fool if he played it cool by making his world a little colder
She was quizzical, and studied pataphysical science in the home
He's majoring in medicine
They're screaming from the gallery
They're grandchildren on your knee
She lets the children lend a hand; in the evening she's a singer with the band
He stays at home and does his pretty face
She's asked to come out to play, greet the brand new day, open up her eyes, and see the sunny skies
He's darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there; what does he care?
I need to make her see, oh what she means to me; until I do I'm hoping she will know what I mean
He sleeps in a hole in the road, is saving up to buy some clothes, and keeps a ten bob note up his nose
He checked into his room, only to find Gideon's Bible
He was hot; he drew first and shot
Her name was Magill, and she called herself Lil
Half of what I say is meaningless, but I say it just to reach her…
She made a fool of everyone; she broke the rules; she's the latest and the greatest of them all
Yes, you could say she was attractively built
He works for the national health
He went out tiger hunting with his elephant and gun
The walrus was him
