"Nowhere Man" meets "Davos Man"


















Diana Moon, whose blog Letter from Gotham I LOVE (!) emailed this version of John Lennon's "Nowhere Man." Well, if you've read my last post that is certainly an appropriate way to mark the generational link betwen Woodstock and Davos... Well, something like that.



Davos Man

He's a real Davos Man,
Sitting in his Davos Land,
Making all his Davos plans
for nobody.

Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?
Davos Man, please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Davos Man, the world is at your command.

He's as blind as he can be,
Just sees what he wants to see,
Davos Man can you see me at all?
Davos Man, don't worry,
Take your time, don't hurry,
Leave it all till somebody else
lends you a hand.
Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Davos Man, please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Davos Man, the world is at your command.

He's a real Davos Man,
Sitting in his Davos Land,
Making all his Davos plans
for nobody.
Making all his Davos plans
for nobody.
Making all his Davos plans
for nobody.
