Mr Smith


VERSE
Am. G. C.
There is a legend in the world of advertising
Am. G. C.
Perpetuated by those that have survived him
Am. F
Whenever he is near
Am. F
Troublemakers disappear
Am. G. C.
The ideas always first with Mr
 Smith

VERSE
From DDB to TBWA
None survived who stood up in his way
He just cut short their careers
He's a synonym for fear
The ideas always first with Mr
 Smith

VERSE
His own career you think would be quite short
In fact his services are highly sort
He always get the job done
That's why he's No.1
The ideas always first with Mr
 Smith

CHORUS
C. Am. F. G
Scott Smith, the advertising killer
Scott Smith, from Moscow to Manilla
Scott Smith, he's firm but fair
Scott Smith, he really really cares

VERSE
In London
 there was a junior account handler
Who he worked with on an ad for procter and gambler
The poor boy changed his copy
They never found the body
The ideas always first with Mr
 Smith

VERSE
He made an amazing ad for Tate and Lyle
The Art Director caused a fuss about house style
They found that he'd been hung
By his mouse cable he swung
The ideas always first with Mr
 Smith

VERSE
There was a CD with an ego in Chicago
Who imposed on him a creative embargo
He unfortunately retired
When a printer backfired
The ideas always first with Mr
 Smith

INSTRUMENTAL

VERSE
If he's ever in your meeting you won't notice
As you focus on account execs that protest
Then in the morning you're surprised
To hear that half of them have died
The idea's always first with Mr
 Smith

CHORUS
(From Stockholm to Seville)

MIDDLE
Am Em
He's quiet and methodical
Am Em
And will never compromise
Am Em
To him it's purely logical
Am G
He doesn't value lives

He's focused on the show
Work is his endeavour
People come and go
But awards last forever

VERSE
As he freelanced alone from town to town
The myth built up and followed him around
But you don't have to be told
More than the truth that can be sold
The ideas always first with Mr
 Smith

VERSE
Whenever young account execs are naughty
The CD tells to them a bedtime story
Afterwards they're wise
They know not to criticize
Or they'll meet a famous freelancer Mr
 Smith
