Mean Old Man

(lyrics by Pam Nestor)

You hear me cry out
Won't you save me
You smile to my face
Yet still deprave me
I need truth
You're a mean old man alright

In this semi-mad world
It's best not to think
Row a leaky boat
And you're bound to sink
You laugh with your mouth
But your eyes don't blink
You're a mean old man alright

But the lord above
He knows that you lie
And your false complexion's
Just another alibi
You laugh with your mouth
But your eyes don't blink
And I'm sure glad I've seen through you
And it seems all my friends
Are coming to
You spell me green
Though the colours blue
The debt collector
Has his eyes on you
