Strongman Blues

Listen here:


Tell the crowd that it’s over

The bombs are falling down

And they need to take cover

Tell the crowd to remember this day

As the time you had nothing to say

Strongman you’re bound to fade away


Go down to your bunker

Take your wife and your children

Leave some cash to your lovers

Tell the crowd that you need to leave

And that now they can all stand at ease

Strongman you’re bound to fall to your knees


Tell them you need to go

It’s the end of your story

It’s the end of the show

Take your sad displays of your wealth

Keep your idiot ideas to yourself

Strongman you’re bound

Strongman you’re bound

Strongman you’re bound

to beg for help
