logical song lyrics – at vance

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 then 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, please tell me who i am, 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, 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, please tell me who i am
who i am, who i am, who i am
