​My Next Impersonation

This song is by Jerry Reed and appears on the album Cookin' (1970).

Now for my first impersonation friends I would like to do for you
A simple lovin' family man with a simple attitude
See him loved by friends and neighbors see the self-respect he gains
See him warm see him tender watch him change

Now for my next impersonation I'd like to do a restless man
Who now holds wine and night life in his inexperienced hands
See him juggling all the pieces as he tries to grab 'em all
See him tempted see him falter watch him fall

But stick around friends cause the best is yet to come
When you see my impression of a man who's a steady cryin'
Nail chewin' chain smokin' bum

Well friends I see you have seen enough and you're ready to go
So let me hear one rousin' cheer as I close my show
With this portrait of a wasted fool who let his world slip by
See him crawl see him crumble hear him cry

(Guitar)
But stick around friends cause the best is yet to come...
Well friends I see you have seen enough and you're ready to go...
And for my last impersonation watch him die
