Lyrics

Sparkle
copyright 2003 Richard Popovic

I asked him to smile and he said
Son I ain?t done that in years
If you?re lucky maybe I?ll get my eyes to sparkle

I found this man to be
Thoroughly remarkable
A humble man?s much more than he appears

He said?I ain?t done much but I?ve always had good intent
I?ve helped all those whose paths I?ve crossed
I?ve fed the hungry and I?ve guided the lost
I said?that sounds like time well spent

A gray stubble beard and a
Grabow pipe a-smoking
Whistling Yankee Doodle underneath his breath

I heard he once came face
To face with death
And when he left, the specter was a-joking

He said?I ain?t done much but I?ve always had good intent
I?ve helped all those whose paths I?ve crossed
I?ve fed the hungry and I?ve guided the lost
I said?that sounds like time well spent

This is the story of the
Solitary fisherman
Un-paraded hero of the Northern land

If he can?t do it, well then
Someone else most probably can
?Cause heroes run thick in the woods of New England

He said?I ain?t done much but I?ve always had good intent
I?ve helped all those whose paths I?ve crossed
I?ve fed the hungry and I?ve guided the lost
I said?that sounds like time well spent
