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 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, respecable, presentable, a vegtable!

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.
