The World According To Garp

by

Al Stewart



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

The World According To Garp is a novel by American author and screenwriter John Irving; it was published in 1978, and Al read the book during the US Time Passages tour. In 1981, he heard a film was being made about it, and put lyrics to a piece of music he had left over from the 24 Carrots sessions two years earlier.
This is a fairly typical, slightly off-beat Al Stewart song, but nothing to write home about. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England)
