He Changed Life

Versions: #1#2
He was a shoemaker, with nothing to talk about
In a village whose name eludes me
He made such lovely shoes, so light
That our lives seemed a little less heavy a burden
 
He used time, talent and heart
Such went his life among us
And far from great speeches, from great theories
To his task each day, one could say of him
He changed life
 
He was a professor, a simple professor
Who thought knowledge was a great treasure
That all the nobodies only had to get through
School and the right of anybody to get instruction
 
He used time, talent and heart
Such went his life among us
And far from great speeches, from great theories
To his task each day, one could say of him
He changed life
 
He was a little man, just a wee little man
Clumsy and daydreaming, a bit botched in a way
He thought he was useless, cast away from other men
 
He cried on his saxophone
 
He used so much time, tears and pain
The dreams of his life, the prisons of his heart
And far from great speeches, from great theories
Inspired day after day by his breath and his cries
He changed life (x5)
