Electric Light Orchestra - The Minister lyrics

Played too hard and he died too young
To be certain of earning his (burnt out/word of? ) love
He won a place in history
And his name will live eternally

Lived the life of a movie star
And he waved to the people from a big black car
Down in a book with the greatest names
Was a lonely man growing tired of pain

Tell me a story minister
There ain't no time left to lose

Ten man tried in the dead of night
Was the great man's final words to write
In a room that was soft and red
The great man spoke outside my head

Tell me a story minister
There ain't no time left to lose
