This is a story of Benjamin Grey
His father November, his mother was May
He gave him cold comfort, she gave him each day
As if she might hide them away
As if she might hide them away

This is a story of Benjamin Grey
So frightened of women that he scared them away
But his heart open wide when she looked in his eyes
And her light turned his night into day
Her light turned his night into day

This is a story of Benjamin Grey
Who worked half his life and who drank half his pay
And his beautiful wife tried to squirrel away
A few quid a month for the day that would come
When he could not remember her name

This is a story of Benjamin Grey
Who ferrets his workers' pensions away
He piles them offshore, he's not breaking the law
He's got another yacht in the bay
He's got another yacht in the bay

This is a story of Benjamin Grey
His learning was troubled, his anger at bay
Until the days dawned when his children were born
When love never got in his way
When love never got in his way
