Jonathan Coulton - A Talk With George Lyrics

  • There's a tall thin man standing in the shadows
  • When he calls your name his voice is strong and clear
  • It's a dark and smoky place, so you can't quite see his face
  • He pulls you close and whispers in your ear
  • And he tells you he was born into some money
  • But it didn't mean he had to sit around
  • And he knows a thing or two about the things that you should do
  • If you don't want to take life lying down
  • First of all hang out a lot with Hemingway
  • Spend some time fighting bulls in Spain
  • You should go three rounds with Archie Moore and Sugar Ray
  • It's so damned scary you won't mind the pain
  • Be ringside at the rumble in the jungle
  • Make friends with Hunter S. and Jackie O.
  • And when they shoot poor Bobby down, you wrestle Sirhan to the ground
  • Love your friends and miss them when they go
  • You should write a book or two and start a magazine
  • Even if it never makes a dime
  • You should swing out by your feet above the circus ring
  • At the very least throw parties all the time
  • Time and tide will never care
  • Not so far from here to there
  • We just go
  • Enjoy yourself, do the things that matter
  • Cause there isn't time and space to do it all
  • Love the things you try, drink a *****tail wear a tie
  • Show a little grace if you should fall
  • Don't live another day unless you make it count
  • There's someone else that you're supposed to be
  • There's something deep inside of you that still wants out
  • And shame on you if you don't set it free.
