changing lives since 2003

i was listening to mesquite ISD radio on the way to pick up oliver yesterday...

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 sent me away to teach me how to be sensible,
logical, oh responsible, practical.
And 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.

Watch what you say or they’ll be 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!

Oh jig jig jiggy yeah.

There are nights 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 aaaaaam.

WHO I AAAAAMMMMMM

WHO I AAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMM!
