Smalltown Poets Album: Smalltown Poets Track: Prophet, Priest and King
Prophet, Priest and King Lyrics
Put down my thoughts in a letter to the president Penciled and packaged with all due respect Elvis commemoratives just for effect Never heard back: you think you know a guy
Wired my congrats to chuck and di some time ago All my love to the queen My invitation was lost in the mail But I know I was missed When they kissed 'neath the veil I sent a nice gift; never got a note
But my closet's a shrine to and old friend of mine Here I talk all the time with a prophet priest... I pull out boxes and brooms And I gush like a groom For it's here I commune with A prophet, priest and king
If I indeed am misperceived By some heads of state. Hey, that's great 'cause I talk to a prophet who tells me the truth And I dine with a king at my home in duluth Better yet I'm in touch with a much needed friend Who hears my confessions and pardons my sin.
