  • I guess I'll miss the man
    Explain it, if you can
    His face was far from fine
    But still I'll miss his face
    And wonder if he's missing mine

    He never smiled enough
    But though his words were gruff
    I liked his shy, sad glance
    I never told him so
    But then, I never got the chance

    Some men are heroes
    Some men outshine the sun
    Some men are simple, good men
    This man wasn't one

    This man
    Wasn't one

    And I won't miss his moods
    His gloomy solitudes
    His blunt and thoughtless style
    But please, don't get me wrong
    He was the best to come along
