Tale Spin


Lyrics (c) Jerry Fielden 2003


The modern bard of news takes a word to task

He pens and quills and stretches, sipping from his flask

His writings prose of quality or so it seems to him

A giant of a legend lies in need of the big trim



Ancient craft

Tale spin magic


A pathetic slave of many, a Homer wannabe

An adjective is amiss, quickly must be found

A publisher awaits for this glory hound

And our spinner is searching hard for the real juicy story



Ancient craft

Tale spin magic


A puppet of the rich boys, our hero is a dud

The truth is nowhere-bound with him at the helm

For his bosses just use him to drag enemies in the mud

The world of deception and lies, his only realm


Ancient craft

Tale spin magic
