Richard talks too slow
He'd get interrupted long before
I always loved that guy
And he's not on T.V. anymore.
To get before he had
The wherewithal to get out before
He had the wherewithal

You've got to coax him slow,
That's the only way that he'll confess.
Tell him that the truth will
Help him live with less.
To get out before he had the wherewithal
To get out before he had the wherewithal.
That's a breathy body of work
Set your sights inward for a leaner look.

Richard died real slow,
He won't get interrupted anymore.
I always loved that guy
And he's not on T.V. anymore.
To get out before he had the
Wherewithal to get out before
He had the wherewithal
