MY NEXT IMPERSONATION (Shel Silverstein) Jerry Reed - 1969 Now, for my first impersonation, friends, I would like to do for you A simple lovin' family man with a simple attitude See him loved by friends and neighbours, see the self-respect he gains See him warm, see him tender, watch him change Now for my next impersonation I'd like to do a restless man Who now holds wine and nightlife in his inexperienced hands See him jugglin' all the pieces as he tries to grab 'em all See him tempted, see him falter, watch him fall But stick around friends 'cause the best is yet to come When you see my impression of a man who's a steady-cryin', nail-chewin', chain-smokin' bum Well, friends I see you've seen enough and you're ready to go So let me hear one rousin' cheer as I close my show With this portrait of a wasted fool who let his world slip by See him crawl, see him crumble, hear him cry (Instrumental Break) But stick around friends 'cause the best is yet to come When you see my impression of a man who's a nail-chewin', steady-cryin', chain-smokin' bum Well, friends I see you've seen enough and you're ready to go So let me hear one rousin' cheer as I close my show With this portrait of a wasted fool who let his world slip by See him crawl, see him crumble, hear him cry And for my last impersonation, watch him die (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2012)
