Lyric Only Solitaire


Brain-storming habit-forming battle-warning weary
winsome actor spewing spineless chilling lines ---
the critics falling over to tell themselves he s boring
and really not an awful lot of fun.
Well who the hell can he be when he s never had V.D.,
and he doesn t even sit on toilet seats?
Court-jesting, never-resting --- he must be very cunning
to assume an air of dignity
and bless us all with his oratory prowess,
his lame-brained antics and his jumping in the air.
And every night his act s the same
and so it must be all a game of chess he s playing ---
``But you re wrong, Steve: you see, it s only solitaire.
