IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE - Part Three - Continued

IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE - Part III

IF you pull a long face 
As long as two thousand years, you say
Think someone looked after your place
Now is he the one who must the price pay

Now that you pull a long face
Just because you lost your way
Why shouldn't someone take your place
For you're bound to lose face anyway

Now if you pull a long face
Forced, as you say, to go away
Come not back to a land to say grace
Turn not Allah away from Yahweh

So if you must always pull a long face
Pull not a gun to make him do as you say
Pay him the rent you owe, ne'er him displace
Share and share alike none will you slay

Yet if you must pull a long face
At some kin on whom you prey
You should really fear losing face
For, from you, the World'll turn away
