The Guy Who Wasn\'t There

Sitting on a park bench
cutting up a pear
Having me a talk with
a guy who wasn\'t there
People passing by, they
all gave me funny stares
But I just kept on talking
to the guy who wasn\'t
Then a man in uniform
said \'son come on with me.
You’re scaring all these
people with this friend
they cannot see.
I’ll take you to a special
place and they’ll give you
lots of care
And they’ll help you with
this fantasy of talking to
the air\'
I said \'well OK officer
I’ll gladly come with you
But what about the thousand
folks all sitting in the pew?
I saw them at St. Timothy\'s
all packed in like sardines
Talking to some other guy
that no one\'s ever seen
So I think it would be prudent
And I think it\'s only fair
That you send a couple
buses for them people
over there.
Then take the great big lot
of us yes all one thousand
Over to that special place
you mentioned in line one
Or maybe it was line fifteen
in truth I do not care
As long as we can all converse
with the guy who isn\'t there.
