When he was young he sang in a band and the fans all
looked the same.
The fans he had were younger than he and they loved to
scream his name.
They'd leave at the end of the third show, go home to
talk of the fun . . .
Well isn't nice the parents would say, well isn't nice
you've got someone,
Someone to idolize, he must look twice his size.
I think it's great your going through a phase.
And I'm awfully glad it will all be over in a couple of
Well the calendar changed and the pages fell off, but
the singer remained the same.
And he never grew tired of singing his song, and the
fans still called his name.
They'd leave at the of the second show, go home to talk
of the fun.
For most of the fans were married by then, so they had
to be in by One.
"One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do . . .
Two can be as bad as one, it's the lonliest number
since the number One.
I'm awfully glad the husbands would say, I'm awfully
glad you got someone
Someone I realize . . . who used to look twice his
I think it's great you still remember his name.
And I'll bet if he knew you were there for the show,
He'd be awfully glad you came.
"The time has come," the Walrus said, "to speak of
Like a fallen star who works in a bar where yesterday
The fans all come for an hour or so, they still
remember his fame,
But the time has come the Walrus said, to call your
fans by name.
Scat out . . .
