The Man of Few Words

Eamon Friel Cop. Con.

The man of few words he was talking to God And the Lord said I hear you’re very odd
Who is to blame for you must have a view
Says the man of few words wasn’t I made by you

The man of few words had to do an exam Here’s the results are you ready I am
Sorry you’ve failed in fact you did the worst The man of few words says the last shall be first

The man of few words he went out for a jar
Tumblers of rum he fell down in the bar
Taxi man says you’ve had more than you think
Says the man of few words will you drive me to drink

The man of few words when he started to snore
Here says the wife go and lie on the floor
He lay on the floor looking up and around
Says the man of few words suits me down to the ground

The man of few words says there’ll never be peace And so he was charged with disturbing the police Now says the judge I have read the report
The man of few words he says silence in court

The man of few words when he went on the sick Big questionnaire lots of boxes to tick
Now says the nurse just how well were you reared Says the man of few words I was seen and not heard

The man of few words he was seen by a shrink Lie on the couch and just say what you think Think of your mind as a boat on a trip
Says the man of few words get to hell off my ship
