The Lyrics

picture these gents...could they be any different ?
one's five foot three...and one's six foot five
artie's the tall dude...and paul, the one lowly
a couple of folk singing guys

practicing hours...these fellows, so green
howling till faces went red
looked pretty grim but their sun then arose
with aplomb

goofy skinny guy...and simon
goofy skinny guy...and simon
goofy skinny guy...and simon...ahhhh...ahhhh

parted, as feared, as their "bridge" sales were mounting
the listening public said, "why must this die ? "
everyone cried and their manager glowered
"you can't get along ?...at least, try ! "

newspapers stories appeared by the score
simon goes solo today !
paul's got the knack...artie's not so endowed
and he bombs

goofy skinny guy...and simon
goofy skinny guy...and simon
goofy skinny guy...and simon...ahhhh...ahhhh

artie was left with a life of frustration
while simon recorded some records, quite fine
millions of people would pass through his turnstiles
while artie was left high and dry

goofy skinny guy...and simon
goofy skinny guy...and simon
goofy skinny guy...and simon
goofy skinny guy...and simon
goofy skinny guy...and simon
goofy skinny guy...and simon

thanks dave....well, garfunkel is in the range of normalcy i suppose but he looks pretty gangly next to gnomish simon....and with the bushy blonde hair he kinda looked like a q-tip
