He was an old man.
He had 14 sons, and he didn't always mention his daughters.
He was lame man he had a bad war wound.
He chased the ship that gave it to him and caught her!

He had grand kids, They'd come to visit.
They were young and full of wonder,
but he wasn't happy. He lost his dear wife
to some sleepy truckers midnight blunder.

There were tools in the garage.
There were shotguns in the closet.
There were too many things not to touch.
Ooouu... go away
He was never really friendly to the children he was close to.
He might have loved them, but not too much.
Ooouu... go away Ooouu... go away Ooouu...
He had wire racks. He had glass jars
full of nuts and bolts from things he no longer used.
There was an organ that his wife used to play,
and a cabinet the he would keep full of booze.

There were tools in the garage.
There were shotguns in the closet.
There were too many things not to touch.
Ooouu... go away
He was never really friendly to the children he was close to.
He might have loved them, but not too much.
Ooouu... go away. and every once in while
you'd get that old man to smile!
And then it was like the Heavens would ring! Mmmmmm...
I never saw it last long, awww but now he is gone.
That's the the only thing that means anything.

There were tools in the garage.
There were shotguns in the closet.
There were too many things not to touch.
Ooouu... go away
He was never really friendly to the children he was close to.
He might have loved them, but not too much.
Ooouu... go away
There were tools in the garage.
There were shotguns in the closet.
There were too many things not to touch.
Ooouu... go away
He was never really friendly to the children he was close to.
He might have loved them, but not too much.
Ooouu... go away
I loved him too but not really much.
I loved him too much!
