Glasgow music legend Crockett St John dies in sleep. age 93

 

doppelganger man

 

excuse me, dont i know you?

havent we met somewhere before?

something strange, perhaps its nothing

like someone strolled my unmade coffin

just that i could swear,

a likeness here or there,

i say i know you fella, i know you from somewhere

 

i must be mistaken, its not the first time i have taken,

another person

for bein

someone else.

 

someone else,

though the face just seems the same

someone else, in this messed up parlour game

of tit and tat, of this and that,

doppelganger maaaaan

 

oh we all could be in trouble

cause they say we've all a double

walkin round

askin to be found

holdin-all the secrets of this life in which we're bound.

 

oh i just cant quite remember

maybe round about september

mr mirror man

my other dandy dan

the-other-broken-piece-of-the-entire-universal-plan.

 

oh someone else,

though the coupon stays the same

someone else, in this rigged-up roulette game

of tit and tat,

of this and that,

doppelganger maaaaan

 

and next time our paths do cross

dont stay aloof, get off that horse

and say hello,

and shake my hand,

for two brothers such as us

can not be strangers in a land

of tit and tat,

of this and that,

doppelganger maaaaan

doppelganger man

doppelganger man.
