  • The bogus man is on his way
    As fast as he can run
    He's tired but he'll get to you
    And shoot you with his gun

    Focused his mind
    On something he cared about
    But it came out a shout
    Just like before

    The bogus man is at your heels
    Now clutching at your coat
    You must be quick now hurry up
    He's scratching at your throat
    Concealed his doubt
    By skillful evasion

    But he couldn't find out
    About deception
    The bogus man is on his way
    As fast as he can run
    He's tired but he'll get to you
    And show you lots of fun Writer/s: BRYAN FERRY
