clinical, intellectual, cynical...

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,
Joyfully, playfully watching me.

But then they send me away
to teach me how to be sensible,
Logical, responsible, practical.
And they showed me a world
where I could be so dependable,
Clinical, intellectual, cynical.

There are times when all the worlds asleep,
The questions run too deep
For such a simple man.
Wont you please,
please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am.

Now watch what you say
or they'll be calling you a radical,
Liberal, fanatical, criminal.
Wont you sign up your name
we'd like to feel you're
Acceptable, respectable,
presentable, a vegetable!

At night, when all the worlds asleep,
The questions run so deep
For such a simple man.
Wont you please,
please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am...
