Remnants of Percy Bass
He scrapes the dirt from his nails with a stick.

He makes a big pile in pail on the sink.

Who was he?

Oh, I'll never tell.

He has not got a thing left to sell.

Ooo, the remnants of Percy Bass.



He glued the newspaper to the wall.

Skeleton clostes are down the hall.

Nobody knows him like I do.

I remember when there were things he could do.



Some things are not made to last.

Ooo, the remnants of Percy Bass.

Some things are things like this:

He could catch a rabbit with one hand.

He could build a castle out of sand. He was

A handsome man.

He gave a tender kiss.



Nobody knows about the fancy shows you starred in

When you were seventeen. I'll never

Tell about your secret life

To a magazine.



I can remember when you were the shallow hero.

It was so long ago when you were

Everybody's shining star.

You were a daydream.



But now,

He needs someone to hold his hand.

Nothing has quite worked out how he had planned.

I try to help him how I can.

But he has forgotten who I am.



Remember,

Some things in life are not made to last.

Ooo, the remnants of Percy Bass.

Some things in life are not made to last.

Ooo, the remnants of Percy Bass.
