Stupid Man

Standard

*music is coming for this one and maybe one more verse

lonely man

Oh what a stupid man
He thought he was very clever
Pretending to throw all the gold away
And hiding all.the silver

He used every last bit of it up
And squandered his roll in clover
Then stubbornly stared at the emptiness
And swore it was what he wanted

Oh what a sad sad day
When the sunlight has gone away
Those blue eyes too blind to notice
And oh what a silent night
When all music has taken flight
And those ears are as deaf as a stone

Oh what a stupid man
he swears he meant no harm
Sweeping the signs under the rug
Says he never saw it coming

He carelessly wired his bomb
And the shrapnal flew all over
Then he stared right past the carnage
And claimed himself the victim

Oh what a sad sad day
When compassion has gone away
The damage might be everlasting
Oh the plight of a broken heart
That can’t tell that it’s blown apart
And will never again find a home

There goes the stupid man
Forever he’ll be lonely
Even if he “has someone”
Only deceit will walk with him

His life is as flimsy as sand
His soul is as thin as paper
Like curses the stories he tells himself
Are a prison of his own making

Oh what a sad sad day
When the sunlight has gone away
Those blue eyes too blind to notice
And oh what a silent night
When all music has taken flight
And the heart is as dry as a bone.
