Too Much of Nothing

Now, too much of nothing

Can make a man feel ill at ease.

One man's temper might rise

While another man's temper might freeze.

In the day of confession

We cannot mock a soul.

Oh, when there's too much of nothing,

No one has control.

.

Say hello to Valerie

Say hello to Vivian

Send them all my salary

On the waters of oblivion

.

Too much of nothing

Can make a man abuse a king.

He can walk the streets and boast like most

But he wouldn't know a thing.

Now, it's all been done before,

It's all been written in the book,

But when there's too much of nothing,

Nobody should look.

.

Say hello to Valerie

Say hello to Vivian

Send them all my salary

On the waters of oblivion

.

Too much of nothing

Can turn a man into a liar,

It can cause one man to sleep on nails

And another man to eat fire.

Ev'rybody's doin' somethin',

I heard it in a dream,

But when there's too much of nothing,

It just makes a fella mean.

.

Say hello to Valerie

Say hello to Vivian

Send them all my salary

On the waters of oblivion

.
