The complete lyrics - all in good time
some = all / the effluxion of time

85 Uncommon Man

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
From the Deep Purple album

Sometimes writing lyrics is akin to creating an impressionist water colour whilst sitting at the bottom of a pool. All those legs are very interesting but it's a challenge to capture them as the paint is all over the place. When you look at the results a few days later it's hard to know what to call it. Then a title leaps from your Inbox and you gratefully explain to a bemused audience that you meant it all along, even if it is now the story of a lame mermaid caught in the ideological struggle for control of Ruislip Lido.

Uncommon Man

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

Things fall together in time
Who said you can't have it all
The beast in the room
Heavy kind of feeling
It's got to be twenty foot tall
But the man is standing high
Oh, oh, oh it's good to be king

Standing together again
Everyone's starting to sway
Up on a hill
Close to the sky
Oh it's a fabulous day
And the man is walking tall
Oh, oh, oh it's good to be king

Bow your head
The carriage is waiting
To take you away

Remember the feeling
Remember the day
Believe what you're seeing
As the ladies-in-waiting drift away

It's good to be king
Ah it's good to be king
It's good to be king
Yes it's good to be king
