Electric Light Orchestra The Minister Lyrics

Last updated: 08/30/2001 01:07:33 AM

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
As a lonely maid cried take [in/the?] pain

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

Ten man tried in the dead of night
??? the great man's final words to right
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
