Liedtext: Your Picture


Your Picture

My friend, she told me such a story
But she didn’t know what I knew
I laughed with my friends, when she got to the end
And I knew we were laughing at you

She told me that you made some money
And you got your self framed on the wall
And people come by and they look at your face
And they say is the fairest of all

And of course you protest, that’s what you do best
You are modest and shy ‘till the end
You are watching them as they are looking at you
And you know it was money well spent

She told me you’ve given up drinking
To be with somebody you knew
And you tried to get into the bible
But it never got into you

But she’s still got some loyal disciples
I suppose that I’m one of the few
And I shouldn’t have laughed ‘cause I mean you no harm
But my friend got to me before you

So next time I see you, I’ll be pleased to see you
I hope you’ll be pleased to see me
I’ll visit your picture. I won’t have the nerve
To tell them that they got you all wrong.
