Mighty Mighty Bosstones All Things Considered + Lyrics

There is this older guy
That comes around from time to time
We're sure that he fought in the war
The war in Vietnam

Most of what he tells us
No one's verified
He swears that he was there
The day that Brendan Behan died

He also claims he trained
A kid named Cassius Clay
He cost Goldwater the election
On election day

If he was still with us today
Then he would introduce
Us to his closest friend
The one and only Lenny Bruce

The truth is what he's been through
And what he's had to do
What he's seen and what he's done
All things considered
What he's telling us isn't hurting anyone

We knew it's true, he's short a few
Check out the deck, it's light
Said he wrote the entire soundtrack
For 'A Hard Day's Night'

On Peyton Place played second base
He says but he regrets
The stadium was Shea
The team the New York Mets

The truth is what he's been through
And what he's had to do
What he's seen and what he's done
All things considered
What he's telling us isn't hurting anyone

All things considered, he's not bitter
He's not mean, no, he's not done
All things considered
What he's telling us isn't hurting anyone

There is this older guy
That comes around from time to time
We're sure that he fought in the war
The war in Vietnam

Most of what he tells us
No one's verified
He swears he was there
The day that Brendan Behan died

The truth is what he's been through
And what he's had to do
What he's seen, and what he's done
All things considered
What he's telling us isn't hurting anyone

All things considered, he's not bitter
He's not mean, no, he's not done
All things considered
What he's telling us isn't hurting anyone

Every now and then we hear our song
Every now and then we hear our song
And every now and then we hear our song
Every now and then we hear our song
