A Well Respected Man

In the style of

The Kinks

Lyrics

'cause he gets up
in the mornin'
and he goes
to work at nine

and he comes
back home
at five-thirty
gets the same train
every time

'cause his world
is built 'round
punctuality
it never fails

and he's oh so good
and he's oh so fine
and he's oh so healthy
in his body and his mind

he's a
well-respected man
about town
doin' the best things
so conservatively

and his mother
goes to meetings
while his father
pulls the maid
and she stirs the tea
with counselors
while discussin'
foreign trade

and she passes looks
as well as bills
at every suave
young man

'cause he's oh so good
and he's oh so fine
and he's oh so healthy
in his body and his mind

he's a
well-respected man
about town
doin' the best things
so conservatively

and he likes
his own backyard
and he likes
his fags the best
'cause he's better
than the rest
and his own sweat
smells the best

and he hopes to grab
his father's loot
when pater passes on

'cause he's oh so good
and he's oh so fine
and he's oh so healthy
in his body and his mind

he's a
well-respected man
about town
doing the best things
so conservatively

and he plays
at stocks and shares
and he goes
to the regatta
he adores
the girl next door
'cause he's dyin' to
get at her

but his mother knows
the best
about the
matrimonial stakes

'cause he's oh so good
and he's oh so fine
and he's oh so healthy
in his body and his mind

he's a
well-respected man
about town
doin' the best things
so conservatively
