Supertramp - The logical song
Tekst en muziek: Roger Hodgson en Rick Davies
(1979)






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
Oh joyfully, oh playfully watching me



But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible
Logical, oh responsible, practical
And then they showed me a world where I could be so dependable
Oh 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
Please, tell me who I am



I say now: “What would you say, now they’re calling you a radical
A liberal, oh fanatical, criminal
Won’t you sign up your name, we’d like to feel you’re
Acceptable, respectable, oh presentable, a vegetable”
Whoa, tick tick tick yeah



But 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
Please, tell me who I am
Who I am, who I am
Who I am
