Neil Diamond – Done Too Soon lyrics

Written by neil diamond

Jesus christ, fanny brice,
Wolfie mozart and humphrey bogart and
Genghis khan and
On to H. G. Wells.

Ho chi minh, gunga din
Henry luce and john wilkes booth
And alexanders
King and graham bell.

Ramar krishna, mama whistler,
Patrice lumumba and russ colombo,
Karl and chico marx,
Albert camus.

E. A. Poe, henri rousseau,
Sholom aleichem and caryl chessman,
Alan freed and
Buster keaton too

And each one there
Has one thing shared:
They have sweated beneath the same sun,
Looked up in wonder at the same moon,
And wept when it was all done

For bein? Done too soon,
For bein? Done too soon.
For bein? Done.
