These are the lyrics to a new song – recently composed on the ukulele

(Sad Man)

He was a sad man
Living in a sad town
Full of broken dreams

Kept his truth in his wallet
And his wallet, like his money
Was rarely seen

Such a silly man
The words he spoke
Came out obscene

They asked the jury now
And they found out
What he had been

Such is life
Don’t forget to kiss your wife
And look her in the eyes
Let life take you by surprise

Let me tell you ’bout the rich man
Living in the house
Of squalid things

It’s full of ballot papers
Favours, misbehaviours going on
Behind the scenes

Don’t be a sad man
Living in the shadow
Of someone else’s dream
