I started out in 1954,
"What the hell was it all for?"
He asked himself why-
"What the hell an I gonna do now,
drink gin all night or fight?"
He says this, he says that-
why should I believe any of it?

I'm living in the country of man.
I seen 'em lying down on their hands
I'm living in the country of man.
I seen 'em lying, dying instead.

Later on in 1955
Charlie was working the Roosevelt, so was I.
"What the hell am I gonna do now,
raise these kids or leave the wife?"
He says this, he says that-
why should I believe any of it?

I'm living in the country of man.
I seen 'em lying down on their hands
I'm living in the country of man.
I seen 'em lying, dying instead.

Buh, buh, buh, buh, Buh, buh, buh,
buh, buh,Buh, buh

And the president says,
"Buh, buh, buh, buh, Buh, buh,
buh, buh, buh, Buh, buh"

The premier replies:
"Buh, buh, buh, buh,Buh, buh,
buh, buh buh, Buh, buh"

Then the papers say,
"Buh, buh, buh, buh,Buh, buh,
buh, buh buh, Buh, buh....
