Don't Pay The Ferryman

Chris DeBurgh

It was late at night
on the open road,
speeding like a man on run
A lifetime spent preparing
for the journey.
He is closer now
and the search is on,
reading from a map in the mind:
Yes there's that ragged hill
and there's a boat on the river.

And when the rain came down,
he heard a wild dog howl
There were voices in the night
(Don't do it!)
Voices out of sight
(Dont't do it!)
To many men have failed before,
whatever you do;

Don't pay the ferryman!
Don't even fix a price!
Don't pay the ferryman
Until he gets you to the other side.

In the rolling mist,
then he gets on board,
now there'll be no turning back
Beware that hooded old man
at the rudder.
And then the lightning flashed
and the thunder roared,
and people calling out his name,
And dancing bones
that jabbered-and-a-moaned
on the water.

And then the ferryman said
"There is trouble ahead,
So you must pay me now."
(Don't do it!)
"You must pay me now."
(Don't do it!)
And still that voice
came from beyond,
whatever you do;

Don't pay the ferryman!
Don't even fix a price!
Don't pay the ferryman
Until he gets you to the other side.


*this is a great game Jofa,
although I think we will be
the only 2 playing it.*




Beware the lollipop of mediocrity, lick once and you suck forever
