Annotationen

Dieser Song bringt zum Ausdruck, dass die Gesellschaft unsere Persönlichkeit kaputt macht, in dem sie uns einem Konformitätsdruck aussetzt, so dass wir am Ende gar zu Gemüse werden. Als Kinder waren wir noch unschuldig und alles war magisch. Deshalb lautet das Rezept für ein gutes Leben, so zu sein wie die Kinder. Supertramp/Hodgson als Bannerträger der Hippie-Lebensanschauung.

Lyrics

{​Intro}​ 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, respectable, presentable, a vegetable! {​Bridge}​ 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, who I am, who I am, who I am {​Outro}​ 'Coz I'm feeling so illogical D-d-digital Oh, oh, oh, oh Unbelievable B-b-bloody marvelous
