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 send me away teach me how to be sensible
Logical oh responsible practical
And then they showed me a world where I could be so dependable
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 but please tell me who I am...
I say now watch what you say they'll be calling you a radical liberal oh fanatical criminal
Won't you sign up your name
We'd like to feel you're acceptable respectable oh presentable a vegetable
Oh, ch-ch-check it out yeah
At night when all the world's asleep
The questions run so deep for such a simple man...
Won't you please oh won't you tell me please tell me what we've learned?
Any minuteI know it sounds absurd but please tell me who I am...
Who I am... who I am... who I am...
'Coz I'm feeling so illogical
