lyrics

At least once in every day, they’ll think of you
How you were with a pint pot in your hands
At least once in every day they’ll drink to you
Drink to you but never understand
But then, hey wait a minute, did the hours really pass so slowly?
But then, hey wait a minute, did you really feel so bad?
Well, the people gathered here were all proud to know you
Here to mark the passing of a friend and a good-hearted man

Did you even taste the pills that you were popping?
Did you taste the water used to wash them down?
Did you stare at the light no longer frightened
and thumb your nose at those who let you down
But then, hey wait a minute, did the hours really pass so slowly?
But then, hey wait a minute, did you really feel so bad?
Well, the people gathered here were all proud to know you
Here to mark the passing of a friend and a good-hearted man

Leave the telephone to ring unanswered
Leave the car unlocked upon the road
You never had the nerve that life demanded
Leave your friends to live on on their own
But then, hey wait a minute, did the hours really pass so slowly?
But then, hey wait a minute, did you really feel so bad?
Well, the people gathered here were all proud to know you
Here to mark the passing of a friend and a good-hearted man

If heaven is the place they can’t get at you
Hell must be this life down on this earth
Do you look down where you are now feeling stupid?
Do you realise now what it all was worth?
But then, hey wait a minute, did the hours really pass so slowly?
But then, hey wait a minute, did you really feel so bad?
Well, the people gathered here were all proud to know you
Here to mark the passing of a friend and a good-hearted man
