too much of nothing lyrics – sandy denny

well, too much of nothing
can make a man fell ill at ease
one man’s temper might start to rise
and another man’s might freeze
and there’s a day of long confession
we cannot mock the soul
but when there’s too much of nothing
no one has control.

chorus
say h*llo to valerie
say h*llo to marian
send them all my salary
on the waters of oblivion.
well, too much of nothing
can make a man abuse his king
well, he can walk down streets and boast like most
but it don’t mean a thing
it’s all been done before
it’s all been written in the book
but when there’s too much of nothing
n*body should look.

(chorus)

well, too much of nothing
can turn a man into a liar
it can cause some man to sleep on nails
and another one to eat fire
well, everybody’s doin’ somethin’
i saw it in a dream
but when there’s too much of nothing
it just makes a fellow mean.

(chorus)
