lyrics

Worthless

Somebody’s great grandad, when he was able
Built a table with his own two hands
He said “I don’t give a holler how pretty she looks
As long as when I sit she stands”
For many fine years it was part of the home
Til that old man found peace in the ground
But it never stopped standing
It wouldn’t stop standing around

Years passed, the house it sold
One day that table found itself in the yard
With a note that read
“Free of charge
If you’ll just get it off my lawn”

People called it worthless
Pathetic, ugly and weak
But that table kept on standing proud
It wouldn’t stop standing around

Decades flew by as wood chipped and paint faded
Only darkness had that table been in
Buried in garages, old basements, sheds and storage
Never kept where it’d be seen
It’d been left in the street, even sent to the dump
But somehow each time it was found
But some keen eye who thought
that ugly thing should keep on standing around

More years passed, now a century old
It found itself in a swanky boutique
With a note that read
“Not for sale
Unless your pockets run incredibly deep”

People used to call it worthless
Pathetic, ugly and weak
Til it stood so long
It lived to see the day
It became a priceless antique

I’m a man who’s been called worthless
Pathetic, ugly and weak
But I’ll just keep on standing
Countin’ the days
Til I become a priceless antique
