Too Short

© Ian McCalman MCPS/PRS

"Tangled Web" (2004 MACS 005)

There's many the reason to write a song
To list them all, takes far too long
But I discovered a secret
Which I will tell to you

It came to me in a moment of truth
That most of my songs were far from good
And I resolved to compromise
And steal a word or two
From classics of another age
I studied them all, page by page
And suddenly I realised
What I had missed before

It's all to do with honesty
Stories told, the truthful way
And that is why I'll tell to you
The reason for this song
We had a little problem
Difficult to sort
Without this little gem the album
Would have been too short
