lyrics

Of Mice And Men

You Sleek And Cowrin’ Timid Beast

Oh What A Panic’s In Your Breast

You Need Not Start Away So Hasty

I Would Be Loath To Run And Chase You



I’m Truly Sorry Man’s Dominion

Has Broken Nature’s Social Union

And Justifies That Ill Opinion

Which Makes You Startle At Me

My Fellow Mortal



My Friend You’re Not Alone

In Proving Fore Sight May Be Vain

The Best Laid Schemes Of Mice And Men

Will Go Awry And Leave Us Not But Grief And Pain



But You Are Blessed Instead Of Me

Only The Present Touches You

And As I Backwards Caste My Eye

And Forwards To Though I Can’t See I Guess And Fear



My Friend You’re Not Alone In Proving Fore Sight

May Be Vain. The Best Laid Schemes Of Mice

And Men Will Go Awry And Leave Us Not But Grief And Pain.
