Logical Song
by 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
Well they'd be singing so happily
Joyfully, playfully watching me

But then they sent 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
Won't 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
Won't 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
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am


"The Logical Song" from the L.P., "Breakfast in America", 1979 by Supertramp
Lyrics/Music by Rick Davies/Roger Hodgson
