​The Minister

This song is by The Move and appears on the album Message from the Country (1971).

Played too hard and he died too young
To be certain of earning his (burnt out/word of?) love
He won a place in history
And his name will live eternally

Lived the life of a movie star
And he waved to the people from a big black car
Down in a book with the greatest names
Was a lonely man growing tired of pain

Tell me a story minister
There ain't no time left to lose

Ten man tried in the dead of night
Was the great man's final words to write
In a room that was soft and red
The great man spoke outside my head

Tell me a story minister
There ain't no time left to lose
