Testo banjo man - genesis

Gimme a song I know
something I can relate to
People never criticise the way I play
Show me the way to go
I need to make a breakthrough
I don't think that I can wait another day

It's putting years on me
I'm a young man going grey
I don't believe that I can wait another day

This simple melody is all I have
I make my living that way
I make good friends that way
Ooh
I really can make no sense of it
as hard as I try
Is it something I do wrong please won't you tell me why
People all seem to like it and no one knows about it more than I

I met a man today who walked in my direction
Stopped took off his hat and lit a cigarette
He listened carefully to what I had been playing
He threw a coin into my hat and walked away

Always play just what they want me to
Everybody wants the same song
If only I could do it in my own way
I feel such emotion
emotion
ooh
emotion
emotion
ooh

Say gimme a song I know
something I can relate to
And no one wants to criticise the way I play
I should just say no and play them what I want to
Cos I don't think that I can wait another day

It's putting years on me
I'm a young man going grey
I don't believe that I can wait another day

This simple melody is all I have
I make my living that way
I make good friends that way
They feel my emotion
emotion
ooh
ooh
emotion
emotion
ooh
