lyrics

The day wears on
so long my friend
its not as funny
as it first seemed

It’s been here from
before you arrived
dragging the time on
all over your mind

He said coyly
as he turned to jim
it was the man from
Reality

You’ll do well boy
to take your leave
don't take it all
too seriously

These days it's too much commitment
just to joke
and its a joke
to be committed you see

Jim learnt a lot
those few years
lifting rocks and
shouting cheers

Standing in back rows
just playing for
the man from
Reality

Then one day
Jim saw the light
burning up eyeballs
it was golden bright

Felt the swell
that all us do
was the call
of ambition's due

Jim tossed a scheme
round his head
a battle raged inside
to make sense of it

Then patron saviour walks
right on by to
make love to the dancers
left his stuff on the stool

For greed or fate
Jim couldn't help it
unsure but he found
a .45 and some courage

Bang was heard in the night
of the day
in a pool lay
the man from
reality

His soul was gone
Now most surely
as was the money
And jim from the country

And poor old patron
left with his honey
and a smoking gun
right where he left it

Was it jim whodunit
I can't confirm or deny it
I just always believe
what the papers printed

Don’t call me a scoundrel
just hold on a minute
i'm just singing a song
you can take the words or leave it
