    No one wrote a song for me
    Just instrumental not too long
    As sure as sure could ever be
    You'd only get the lyrics wrong

    No solo Chet Baker ever played
    lowered me slowly to my grave
    The prose that Keats and Yates would save
    was for King and Queen not knave

    I have no poem that describes my charm
    No story told that's short and sweet
    I have no hymn, I have no psalm
    This song I have it has no beat
    Yes it has no beat
    No tapping of feet
    Yes it has no beat

    Miles Davis played the black 'n' blues
    Did he play for me to lose?
    Cause just when round midnight falls
    That tune's not his it's Kenny Ball's

    Now on that graveyard on that grave
    On that tombstone in the shade
    No poem written, no accolade
    No "We loved you" ever sprayed

    There's just this feeling from that moss
    When epitaph you cannot read
    he must have lived it at budget cost
    So he deserves to be beneath

    All that William Robinson wrote
    not one of my pluses did he portray
    those lyrics stuck right down my throat
    I never hit
    It never hit
    My hit parade
