THE LOGICAL SONG



When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
oh, joyfully, oh, playfully, watching me.


But then they sent me away to teach me how to be
sensible, logical, oh, responsible, practical.
And they showed me a world where I could be so
dependable, oh, clinical, oh, intellectual, cynical.


There are times when all the world's asleep,
the questions run too deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned?
I know it sounds absurd
please tell me who I am.

I said, now watch what you say or they'll be calling you
a radical, a liberal, oh, fanatical, criminal.
Oh, won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
acceptable, repectable, oh, presentable. A vegetable!


At night, when all the world's asleep,
the questions run too deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned?
I know it sounds absurd
please tell me who I am,
please tell me who I am,
who I am,
who I am,
who I am.
