Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm not the wreck of the Hesperus
Feel more like the Wall of China
Getting old as Methuselah
Feel tall as the Eiffel Tower
I'm not a power of attorney
But I can rock as good as Gibraltar
Ain't no more no spring chicken
Been plucked but I'm still kicking
But it's alright, it's alright
Verse 2
Poison penmen sneak, have no nerve to speak
Make up lies then they leak 'm out
Behind a pseudonym, the rottenness in them
Reaching out trying to touch me
Verse 3
Met some Oscars and Tonys
I slipped on a pavement oyster
Met a snake climbing ladders
Got out of the line of fire
(But it's alright)
Verse 4
Brainless writers gossip nonsenses
To others heads as dense as they is
It's the same old malady
What they see is faulty
Verse 5
I'm not the wreck of the Hesperus
Feel more like Big Bill Broonzy
Getting old as my mother
But I tell you I got some company
(But it's alright)
Verse 6
But it's alright, it's alright
But it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, alright
It's alright
