The Fantastic Mr Gray
HE SPENDS HIS DAYS SITTING IN THE PUB
THE ONLY MEMBER OF HIS FAN CLUB
BUT WHEN THE BOYS ALL GATHER ROUND
HE'LL BUY THEM A DRINK AND SIT THEM DOWN

HE'LL TELL THEM ALL HIS STORY
OF HIS VERY OWN PAST GLORY
OF HOW HE HAD IT ALL
HOW HE WAS SET UP FOR A FALL

HE'LL TELL THEM HE WAS A MAN OF HIS OWN MAKING
HE WAS THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD
AND EVEN THOUGH NOW HE'S GREY AND AILING
ALL THE YOUNG GIRLS WANT TO GET INTO HIS BED

THE FANTASTIC MR GRAY
HE'LL TELL YOU HOW GREAT HE IS ALL DAY

NOW ALL THE BOYS SECRETLY LAUGH BEHIND HIS BACK
THEY LISTEN JUST TO DRINK HIS BEER AND SMOKE HIS FAGS
WHEN HE'S FINISHED ONE STORY THEY'LL MAKE HIM TELL ANOTHER
BY CLOSING TIME THEY'LL HANG OFF HIM LIKE A LONG LOST BROTHER

SO IF YOU'RE DOWN IN GROVE STREET LOOK OUT FOR THAT BAR
THE ONE WITH THE BRASS SHIP HANGING ABOVE THE DOOR
HEAD IN TO THE BACK AND TAKE A SEAT
GRAB A DRINK AND YOU'LL BE SURE TO MEET

THE FANTASTIC MR GRAY

HE'LL TELL YOU HIS FANTASTIC STORY
OF HIS VERY OWN FANTASTIC PAST GLORY
OF HOW HE LOST IT ALL
HOW IT WAS EVERYONE ELSE'S FAULT

NOW THE COUNCIL PAY HIS BILLS AND PAY HIS RENT
'COS HE'S CAUGHT IN HIS OWN VERSION OF EVENTS
I'M NOT SAYING HE'S LYING, OR THAT IT'S UNTRUE
BUT I CAN'T SAY THAT I'VE HEARD OF HIM, HAVE YOU?

THE FANTASTIC MR GRAY
HE'S A FIGMENT OF HIS OWN IMAGINATION
