Good Company - Queen



Take good care of what you've got
my father said to me.
As he puffed his pipe and Baby B.,
he dandled on his knee.

Don't fool with fools who'll turn away,
keep all good company.

Oo hoo, Oo hoo.
Take care of those you call your own,
and keep good company.

Soon I grew and happy too
my very good friends and me.
We'd play all day and Sally J.,
the girl from number four.

And very soon I begged her won't
you keep me company.

Oo hoo, Oo hoo.
Oo hoo, Oo hoo.
Come marry me forever more,
we'll be good company.

Now marriage is an institution sure.
My wife and I, our needs and nothing more.
All my friends by a year by and by disappear,
But we're safe enough behind our door.

I flourished in my humble trade
my reputation grew.
The work devoured my waking hours
but when my time was through.

Reward of all my efforts my own
limited company.

I hardly noticed Sally as
we parted company.

All through the years in the end it appears.
There was never really anyone but me.

Now I'm old I puff my pipe
but no-one's there to see.
I ponder on the lesson
of my life's insanity.

Take care of those you call your own,
and keep good company
