No One Came
Maybe it's because I'm only starting

That I think it won't take too long

Maybe it's because I can see you laughing

That I think you've got it wrong

Maybe I could be like Robin Hood

Like and outlaw dressed all in green

Someone said what's he gonna turn out like

And someone else said never mind

Well I was big and bold and more than twice as old

As all the cats I'd ever seen

I grew my hair and bought a suit

Of shiny white or was it cream

I shook and shivered danced and quivered

And stood on a mountain top

No one came from miles around and said

Man your music is really hot



Well I knew what they meant because I was a freak

My throat was tired and worn

My pretty face just looked out of place

As they poured on the scorn

I wrote on yellow paper from a man who was the king

He said my boy we'll have some crazy scenes

There weren't any scenes at all like he was talkin' about

He must've been the king of queens

Well I could write a million songs about the things I've done

But I could never sing them so they'd never get sung

There's a law for the rich and one for the poor

and there's another one for singers



It's die young and live much longer

Spend your money and sit and wonder

No one came for miles around

And said man your music is really funky



I believe that I must tell the truth

And say things as they really are

But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth

Could I ever be a star

Nobody knows who's real and who's fakin'

Everyone's shouting out loud

It's only the glitter and shine that gets through

Where's my Robin Hood outfit

Well I've come and I've gone before you wink an eye

No one
