Supertramp

A Soapbox Opera – Supertramp

” I want to tell you something;
Listen to me,
I’m trying to say, I’m better than you,
I am only what I am”

” We must not stand still,
For the night is coming,
Every man, every woman and child,
Everybody help me”

I hear, only what I want to hear,
But, I have to believe in something,
Have to believe in just one thing.
I said Father Washington, you’re all mixed up,
Collecting sinners in an old tin cup.
Well, spare a listen for a restless fool,
There’s something missing when I need your rule.

Well ,hey there;
You tell me you’re a holy man, But, although I am just a beginner,
I don’t see you as a winner.
I said, Sister Washington, you’re all washed up,
Collecting teardrops in a paper cup;
If I could tell you what you need to know;
If I could tell you to get on with the show.

I’d rather never leave her,
There’s a storm in my head,
Makes me hear what you say;
Just was it true?
So, what have I to do?
-Well, what has he to do?-
+Oh, what is there to-oo do+
What oh-oh-ohoh

“All creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful, the lord god made them all”

Mary, oh tell me what I’m living for,
‘Cause I feel like I’m tossed in the river,
Oh’ have you a son to deliver.

I said, Father Washington, you’re all mixed up,
Collecting sinners in an old tin cup,
you tell the children what you need to know,
But, will they listen when it’s time to go.

Oh, Sister Robinson, you’re all washed up,
Collecting teardrops in a paper cup,
Can someone tell me what I need to know,
Can someone help me to get on with the show.

Waiting so long – Supertramp

Did you get all you want?
Did you see the whole show?
So where’s all the fun
That we used to know?
As the memories fade
Way out of view
I’d love those old days
To come back to you

I’ve been waiting so long
I’m not feeling so strong

Did you say what you mean?
Did you mean what you say?
About this new scene
Is it really that way?
But the blindness goes on
You say it’s not so
But what do you know?


I’ve been waiting so long
I’m not feeling so strong

Ain’t nothing new, it’s just the same old thing
You got me singing those old blues again

Angry music, words of fire
Painted faces filled with rage
Even then they sound so tired
I must be set in my old ways

If this world is unimpressive
It’s been that way for quite awhile
I don’t need no heavy message
Just turn me on and make me smile

Yes I’ve been waiting such a long time
Just for something to ring true
Now I’d rather taste the old wine
Than mess around with something new

And the blindness goes on
The blindness goes on

Don’t leave me now

Don’t leave me now
Leave me out in the pouring rain
With my back against the wall
Don’t leave me now
Don’t leave me now
Leave me out with nowhere to go
And the shadows start to fall
Don’t leave me now
Don’t leave me now
Leave me out on this lonely road
As the wind begins to howl
Don’t leave me now
Don’t leave me now
All alone on this darkest night
Feeling old and cold and grey
Don’t leave me now

Don’t leave me now
Leave me holding an empty heart
As the curtain starts to fall
Don’t leave me now
Don’t leave me now
All alone in this crazy world
When I’m old and cold and grey and time is gone…

C’est le Bon – Supertramp

I never knew what a man was supposed to be
I never wanted the responsibility
I still remember what they tried to make of me
They used to wonder what they couldn’t get through to me,
‘Cauce all that I had as this music
A-coming to me
And all that I had was this rhythm
A-running through me.

I took a tip from the man in the ministry
He said, “My son, better work in the factory”
Well there were days I can tell you quite honestly
I saw myself winding up in the military
So lucky to have all this music
A-coming to me
I’m lucky to have all this rhythm
A-running through me
I’m watching the movie go down
Around, about me
I’m watching the marry-go-round
Go down about me.

I said, “Lovers, you’re needed in the garden
‘Cauce there’s a lot of crazy people
Who’ve forgotten where their heart is
And they don’t give a damn
About hurting those flowers and those trees.”
C’est le bon, sailing on and on…

Sometimes I wonder where my life is taking me
Sometimes I wonder what they all expect of me
Well there were days I can tell you quite honestly
I saw myself winding up in the monastery

‘Cauce all that I have is this music
A-coming to me
And all that I have is this rhythm
A-running through me
I’m watching the movie go down
Around, about me
I’m watching the marry-go-round
Go down about me.

I said, “Lovers, you’re needed in the garden
‘Cauce there’s a lot of crazy people
Who’ve forgotten where their heart is
And they don’t give a damn
About hurting that small child in me.”
C’est le bon, sailing on and on…

C’est What – Supertramp

Yes I’ve been waiting
Waiting patiently and waiting

Well if you ever feeling sorry
So sorry for yourself
And they tell you not to worry
Just leave your problems on the shelf

C’est what? C’est what, oh well C’est what?
That’s what they tell you
C’est what? C’est what, oh well C’est what?
Day and night

You’re on the inside looking outside
Wishing you were somewhere else
But you sit back with reservations
As you count up all your unearned wealth

C’est what? C’est what, oh well C’est what?
Ah they’re sayin’ it again
C’est what? C’est what, oh well C’est what?
You know it and I know it too

Well let me tell you a story
Like the one’s I used to know
‘Bout love and all its glory
Well I’m sorry but it just ain’t so

It took a long time just to get even
If you know just what I mean
So let’s call it even Steven
In the land of broken dreams

C’est what? C’est what, oh well C’est what?
Ah they’re at it again
C’est what? C’est what, oh well C’est what?
Every day and every night
I can’t take it anymore

Gonna get it, don’t sweat it
Don’t apologize, it’s all around you
Gonna get it, don’t sweat it
Don’t apologize, it’s all around you

You may never be all that you wanna be
Deep down inside you, you know it will never be
No bed of roses or walk down the avenue
Culturally, socially, people walk over you
Get with the program and make with the attitude
Life is a dream if you face it my friend

Hey Hey

Babaji – Supertramp

All of my life I felt that you were listening
Watching for ways to help me stay in tune
Lord of my dreams, although confusion
Keeps trying to decieve
What is it that makes me believe in you?

Babaji, oh won’t you come to me
Won’t you help me face the music
Bring it out so we can sing it out
Help me to find it before we lose it
At night when the stars are near
And there’s no one to keep you from coming here
And there’s no one to shield me before your eyes
Is it mine, is it mine, is it mine to know?

I can see it’s not too good to me
To be afloat in the sea of glory
Babaji, oh how you comfort me
By showing me it’s a different story
Your light in the dark is real
And I know that you know it is how I feel
When I see the reflections that’s in your eyes
Is it mine, is it mine, is it mine to know?

Babaji, have you a song for me
To tell the world of its guardian angel
Bring it out so we can sing it out
Oh must you always remain a stranger?
At night when the stars are near
And I long for delusion to disappear
The I see the reflection that’s in your eyes
Is it time, is it time, is it time to know?
