Mister Hood

Mr Hood was a gentleman
Always inspired by the sun
With two guns loaded with blanks
And a basket full of words
With two guns loaded with blanks
And a basket full of words
 
And that he was a bandit
One cannot deny it
But he wasn't the only one
And that he was a bandit
One cannot deny it
 
And on the road to Pescara
He was assailed by the greedy relatives
And he unloaded his guns in the air
And he gifted his words to the deaf
And he unloaded his guns in the air
And he gifted his words to the deaf
 
And somebody thought
That he had died there
But it wasn't true
And somebody thought
That he had died there
 
And now even when it rains
You can see him giving his back to the sun
With a basket of new words
Trampling on new flowerbeds
With a basket of new words
Trampling on new flowerbeds
 
And everybody called him Mr Hood
But his real name was "Fish Bone"
And everybody called him Mr Hood
 
Thanks!
