Kathy Mar Charlie Lyrics

Last updated:


Chorus: Charlie's gone where there is no touch
And none of the crew will miss him much
Charlie's gone to where he was grown
Living with others yet always alone

Charlie tried to be polite
But Charlie couldn't control his fear
Nor yet distinguish wrong from right
Nor laughter for fun from a jeer
But we who had to share this ship
With such a monster in shape of man
Are glad to see him end his trip
Right back where he first began

Charlie reached for someone's love
He never learned you must not use force
And underneath his velvet glove
Were talons of steel of course
And lashing out at all the crew
Until his Keepers had stopped his game
He never learned the things to do
To merit the human name

Charlie went back home today
We were not sorry to see him go
The magic tricks he chose to play
Made quite a remarkable show
Now he's left for a land of ghosts
With no one reaching to him at all
He hurt his friends and killed his hosts
Now no one will come at his call
