Though They Are Special

Though they are quite special they firmly believe
Self important people their own selves do only deceive
For on some future night or on some future day
The one who swings the scythe of death will come reaping their way

I knew of self important people as a boy and as a man in Millstreet
And far south of there everyday their sort i do meet
Self important people are to be found everywhere
There are millions of them in the big World out there

Self importance is an in thing of the twenty first century
Nowadays there is even a syndrome known as the 'look at me'
Does some have taken self love too far seem a fair thing to say
At least anyhow it does look this way

Those who feel they are superior to others are ignorant and ignorance can be bliss
That they too were born naked and as mortals this point they do miss
Too much love of self for the mind is not a healthy thing
You should leave it to others your praises to sing

To meet a self important person you need not walk far
Some of them even patronize your local public bar
And despite the size of your home and the size of your car
As is often said you can only be who you are.
