Colorblind James Experience – Buster Cornelius lyrics

Buster Cornelius was an honest man but he ruled his people with an iron hand
Buster Cornelius was a regular Joe but if you did him wrong, he'd let you know

Buster Cornelius was fine and upstanding but to his people he was hard and demanding
He was always brave and never cruel but don't ever mistake him for a fool

Buster Cornelius stood four feet four but to his people he was ten feet tall
Whether in battle or at the sacred altar, he led them truly and never faltered

Buster Cornelius died at home
They say his age was forty-one
They carried him out of his modest room and laid his body in a marble tomb

As heroes go, he was the best
Head and shoulders above the rest
And that's why on the third of May, we celebrate Buster Cornelius Day
