The Logical Song

I'm feeling retro, and Qiong, I think this one will resonate with you for some reason. Was it you who was trying to turn me onto Supertramp?

The Logical Song
-- Supertramp

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
They'd be singing so happily
Oh joyfully
Oh playfully
Watching me

But then they send 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 learnt
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am

I said now watch what you say
They'll be calling you a radical
A liberal
Oh fanatical
Criminal
Won't you sign up your name
We'd like to feel you're acceptable
Respectable
Oh presentable
A vegetable!

But at night when all the world's asleep
The questions run so deep
For such a simple man
Won't you please
Please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am
