How Great
How Great

Big man floating in the ocean
Big mans lost out at sea
Little boat swaying with the motion
And nobody cares be he
And for the first time in his life
He is his only company
No-one there to shout how great he is

He's looking for his little people
To get him out of this
Who's fresh ambitious faces
Should be staring back at his
And in between the platitudes
His ass they'd gladly kiss
But they're not around to shout how great he is
How great he is

In the board room with the leather chairs
And marble on the walls
Someone's appointed as the one who cares
And it's move on up, for one and all

Little man's out there fishing
He does it every day
He doesn't know big man's missing
And he wouldn't care anyway
But he rescues him from certain death
And goes along his way
No-one there to say how great he is
Until today
