He was a most peculiar man.
She lived upstairs from him

He lived all alone within a house,
A most peculiar man.
He had no friends, he seldom spoke
'Cause he wasn't friendly and he didn't care
Oh, no! he was a most peculiar man.
He died last Saturday.
With the windows closed so he'd never wake up

Who should be notified soon.
But wasn't he a most peculiar man?"
