Star Of The Show (Sam Whimpenny)

Dear John it's happening just like I said it would
The system is extolling what you planned
Dear John don't let it bite - it's teeth are sharp
And the syntax is what you and I won't understand
You should beware my friend
It is an evil road we must tread
Without a kindly word
We must accept what will not be said

Dear John don't let your mind run away from this
Give me another clue which I should know
Dear John don't crack, if you do the reason's gone
You alone can predict which way my mind might blow
I heard it was people like us
That were susceptible to prayer
But if we can close our ears
Then we can surely close their cares

Dear John you've been the helping hand more than once
If I can't repay I'll surely have to leave
Dear John your thoughts are so much clearer now
And what can a health fanatic life not achieve
An inkling of sympathy
Passes over my furrowed face
Please don't encourage him
He might just take my place

Don't you dare give in John
You're the star of the show!
