Nothing At All

  • I'm talking to myself again
    And waving to a passing friend
    I've known her since I don't know when
    Ah, it's nothing at all

    Just a few of us walk arm in arm
    It's innocent and charming
    But the children seem to be getting alarmed
    Don't worry kids, it's nothing at all

    When I hear about the doom and gloom
    That's around the corner, and coming soon
    I take a sip of mother's rune
    And sit with my back to the wall

    It's nothing at all
    Nothing at all
    And the old lady smiled
    It's nothing at all
    Then she blew all the leaves off my tree

    And the junk that sails our seven seas
    Is very nearly up to my knees
    But the platitudes and pleasantries
    Keep saying it's nothing at all

    I'll deal with it on another day
    If I close my eyes it'll go away
    So, bottoms up boys, and what do you say?
    Really, it's nothing at all

    It's nothing at all
    Nothing at all
    And the old lady smiled
    It's nothing at all
    And the summer passed away

    Nothing at all
    It's nothing at all
    And the old lady smiled
    It was nothing at all
    Then she blew all the leaves off my tree
