Lyrics He Went to Paris

He went to Paris looking for answers to questions that bothered him so
He was impressive young and aggressive saving the world on his own
The warm summer breezes
French wines some cheeses
Put his ambitions at bay
In summers and winters scattered like splinters and four or five years slipped away
And he went to England played the piano and married an actress named Kim
They had a fine life
She was a good wife
And bore him a young son named Jim
And all of the answers to all of the questions locked in his attic one day
'Cos he liked the quiet clean country living and twenty more years slipped away
Well the war took his baby
Bombs killed his lady and left him with only one eye
His body was battered his whole world was shattered and all he could do was just cry
While the tears were a' fallin' he was recallin' answers he never found
So he hopped on a freighter skidded the ocean and left
England without a sound
Now he lives in the islands fishes to pylons and drinks his green label each day
Writing his memoirs losing his hearing but he don't care what most people say
Through eighty six years of perpetual motion
If he likes you he'll smile and he'll say
Jimmy some of it's magic and some of it's tragic but I had a good life all the way
And he went to Paris
Looking for answers to questions that bothered him so
