LYRICS


Morgan Freeman’s Early Life

Morgan
in 1937 you decided it was time
in Memphis
to come into the world
and start to live your epic life
When you were an infant
they took you to Mississippi
then to Gary, Indiana
and finally Chicago
then finally Chicago

Morgan
in 1946 you started acting as a child
in school plays
when you were 12 you were declared 
the best in all the state
you could have gone to college
but you wanted something better for yourself
so you worked as a mechanic
in the Air Force, the Air Force, the Air Force

In the early 1960s you moved to LA
and worked as a transcript clerk in LA
You also lived in New York and worked at the fair
You lived in San Francisco and the opera ring
The Royal Hunt of the Sun
The Pawnbroker
a play we cannot name
Hello, Dolly
with Cab Calloway
Hello, Dolly
with Cab Calloway

Morgan Freeman’s Debut Roles

In 1971 you had your first credited film appearance
Who Says I Can’t Ride a Rainbow!
You first became known in the American media
for roles on the soap opera Another World
PBS kids show, The Electric Company

How did it feel 
to be on the show playing such roles as 
Easy Reader, Vincent the Vegetable Vampire
Cause later you said you should have
left earlier than you did
left earlier than you did
you should left earlier
How did it feel?
How did it feel???!

That was such a long time ago

Morgan Freeman’s Automobile Accident

When you were in your car
just the other day
It was the third of August, 2008
A 1997 Nissan Maxima
You left the highway
and flipped over several times
You left the highway
and flipped over several times
You left the highway
and flipped over several times

The jaws of life were used
to save your life
You swore you didn’t drink
a drop that night
Your shoulder, arm, and elbow
will never be the same
At least we know that you
are not to blame
at least we know that you
are not to blame
at least we know that you
are not to blame

Miss Meyer, Miss Meyer
was she your friend?
Was she along for the ride
was she along for a ride?
Miss Meyer, Miss Meyer
was she your friend?
Was she along for the ride
Was she along for a ride?

Morgan Freeman’s Alleged Relationship with his Step-Granddaughter

If it’s true
I’m sure you have a good reason
If it’s true
I’m sure you’ll be a good pair
If it’s true
I hope you’re happy forever
but maybe this all is a lie

If it’s true
that she is just 27
If it’s true
that you are 72
If it’s true
I hope you never regret it
but maybe this all is a lie

If it’s a lie
I knew you never would do it
If it’s a lie
I know you’re better than that
If it’s a lie
I blame the press and the media
for bringing you down with them all

If it’s a lie
I’ll never let them forget it
If it’s a lie
You should come out and say so
If it’s a lie
Then I’ll be happy forever
But if it’s not I will survive

But Morgan, I just think
that no one understands you
And Morgan, I just think
that no one understands you
