A Man of No Importance lyrics

A Man of No Importance

ALL:
It's a rainy Dublin morning,
sky a leaden gray.
Black umbrellas passing,
just your normal day.

LILY:
A woman is sliding two eggs on a plate,
calling her brother, "Now Alfie, you're late!"

ALL:
and a man is brushing the lint from his vest,
just a man, his uniform dutifully pressed,
now the man remembers a poem that makes his heart year.

LILY:
but his sister says, "straighten your tie"
CARNEY:
and the butcher next door waves goodbye
ALL:
to a man of no importance.

Picture the bus as it moves down a street
past a window of fish and a priest on a bike.
A handful of people with journeys to make,
leaving the ev'ry day world in their wake.

Just a man conducting his bus through the day
but the day is now something more than a day
as the man takes tickets and looks at the girls dressed in blue.

ROBBIE:
Then his driver yells "Alf, you ok?"
ALL:
and the bus lumbers off on its way,
as a man of no importance ends his day.
