The Flim Flam Man
He'll tell you a story, he'll make you feel real good
He'll be your best friend in the whole neighborhood
Everyone loves him, but he's got a secret plan
None other than the flim flam man....
He'll gain your confidence, then he'll blow your mind
He'll promise you things, even when he's stealing you blind
It's seems too good to be true, but you became his fan
The sweet talkin' flim flam man....
Silver tongued rascal, he's got 'em all fooled
You invest in his con game, 'cause it sounds like fun
You may have a degree, but he's even more schooled
And before you know it, he'll take the money and run
He'll sell you a deed to a well known bridge in town
He'll keep your trust, even though he's taken you down
He can make you believe you own a piece of Japan
Another victim of the flim flam man....
And after the jobs done and he says his goodbyes
You'll never accept the fact he told you all of those lies
You even shake his hand, as they take him to the can
You never will forget the flim flam man....
Yeah,the flim flam....flim flam man!

This would be a fantastic theme song to a movie...Of course, I see Paul Newman as the leading flim flam man...Great work, Len...len

Great lyrics Len.

Even though it is about a con artist it still reads as upbeat to me.

I enjoyed it very much.

Len, I would agree with Glata and I believe I even married this S*** head.  But he I let myself get sucked in by a man with a soft sweet silver tongue.  Great write.  Christina

Dear Len, In psychiatric terms, the flim-flam man is not less than a psychopath: he has all the prerequisites.  You're right.  He'll end up in jail time and time again, until he remains there.  It's a pitiful kind of thing -- since he can't help himself and no one else can help him either.  Beautiful sincere writing.  An important issue.  --David

Just flows majestically on with lovely language -- excellent -- Alistair
