I should be satisfied
Because I have a job
I'm the so called respectable citizen
And I earn four thousand quid
A month
 
I should thank the Lord
For being successful
As an artist
I should be happy
Because I managed to buy
A Corcel 73 car
 
I should be glad
And content
For living in the neighbourhood of Ipanema
After starving
For two years
Here in the Marvellous City
 
Oh!
I should be all smiles
And proud
For finally succeeding in life
But I think that's just a big joke
And quite a dangerous one
 
I should be satisfied
For having achieved
All I ever wanted
But I confess, bamboozled
That I'm disappointed
 
Because it was all so easy to achieve
And then I wonder "And now?"
I have a lot
Of big things to achieve
And I can't just stand there still
 
I should be happy for the Lord
Having conceded me Sundays
To take my family
To the Zoo
And feed popcorn to the monkeys
 
Oh!
But what a boring guy I am
Who thinks nothing is funny
Monkey, beach, car
Newspaper, waterslide
I think it all sucks
 
It's just looking in the mirror
And feel
Like a damn big idiot
Knowing you're human
Ridiculous, limited
And only uses 10%
Of your animal brain
 
Still believing
You're a doctor
A priest or a cop
Playing its part
In our fine
Society
 
I just won't sit
On the throne that's an apartment
With my mouth wide open
Filled with teeth
Waiting for the coming of my death
 
Because far from the
Flagged fences
That divide backyards
At the calm peak
Of my seeing eye
Rests the sounding shadow
Of a flying saucer
 
I just won't sit
On the throne that's an apartment
With my mouth wide open
Filled with teeth
Waiting for the coming of my death
 
Because far from the
Flagged fences
That divide backyards
At the calm peak
Of my seeing eye
Rests the sounding shadow
Of a flying saucer
 
Thanks!
