Aren’t these great lyrics?  This is my theme song this week:

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 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.

.
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 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.
