Tom Jones Nothing Rhymed Lyrics


If I give up the seat I’ve been saving

To some elderly lady or man

Am I being a good boy

Am I your pride and joy

Mother please if your pleased say I am

And if while in the course of my duty

I perform an unfortunate take

Would you punish me so, unbelievably so

Never again will I make that mistake

This feeling inside me could never deny me

The right to be wrong if I choose

And this pleasure I get

From say winning a bet

Is to lose

When I’m drinking my Bonaparte Shandy

Eating more than enough apple pies

Will I glance at my screen and see real human beings

Starve to death –

Right in front of my eyes

Nothing old, nothing new, nothing ventured

Nothing gained, nothing still-born or lost

Nothing further than proof nothing wilder than youth

Nothing older than time nothing sweeter than wine

Nothing physically, recklessly, hopelessly blind

Nothing I couldn’t say

Nothing why ‘cos today

Nothing rhymed
