SUPERTRAMP When I Was Young Lyrics
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.
Then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible,
oh logical, responsible, practical.
And 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.
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, oh, respectable, oh, 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!
