There is this older guy that comes around from time to time
We're sure that he fought in the war, the war in Vietnam
Most of what he tells us no one's verified
He swears that he was there the day that Brendan Behan died

He also claims he trained a kid name Cassius Clay
He cost Goldwater the election on election day
If he was still with us today, then he would introduce us
To his closest friend, the one and only Lenny Bruce

The truth is what he's been through and what he's had to do
And what he's seen, and what he's done
All things considered
What he's telling us isn't hurting anyone

We knew it's true, he's short a few, check out the deck, it's light
Said he wrote the entire soundtrack to A Hard Day's Night
On Peyton Place, played second base, he says but he regrets
The stadium was Shea, the team, the New York Mets

The truth is what he's been through and what he's had to do
And what he's seen, and what he's done
All things considered
What he's telling us isn't hurting anyone

All things considered, he's not bitter
He's not mean and he's not done
All things considered
What he's telling us isn't hurting anyone

There is this older guy that comes around from time to time
We're sure that he fought in the war, the war in Vietnam
Most of what he tells us no one's verified
He swears that he was there the day that Brendan Behan died

The truth is what he's been through and what he's had to do
And what he's seen, and what he's done
All things considered
What he's telling us isn't hurting anyone

All things considered, he's not bitter
He's not mean and he's not done
All things considered
What he's telling us isn't hurting anyone

Every now and then we hear our song
Every now and then we hear our song
And every now and then we hear our song
Every now and then we hear our song
