Artist/Band: George Harrison
Lyrics for Song: Wreck Of The Hesperus
Lyrics for Album: Cloud Nine [1987]

I'm not the wreck of the Hesperus

Feel more like the Wall of China

Getting old as Methuselah

Feel tall as the Eiffel Tower

I'm not a power of attorney

But I can rock as good as Gibraltar

Ain't no more no spring chicken

Been plucked but I'm still kicking

But it's alright, it's alright

Poison penmen sneak, have no nerve to speak

Make up lies then they leak 'm out

Behind a pseudonym, the rottenness in them

Reaching out trying to touch me

Met some Oscars and Tonys

I slipped on a pavement oyster

Met a snake climbing ladders

Got out of the line of fire

(But it's alright)

Brainless writers gossip nonsenses

To others heads as dense as they is

It's the same old malady

What they see is faulty

I'm not the wreck of the Hesperus

Feel more like Big Bill Broonzy

Getting old as my mother

But I tell you I got some company

(But it's alright)

But it's alright, it's alright

But it's alright, it's alright

It's alright, alright

It's alright
