Sixto Rodriguez – I Wonder lyrics

I wonder how many times you've been had
And I wonder how many plans have gone bad
I wonder how many times you had s**
I wonder do you know who'll be next
I wonder l wonder wonder I do

I wonder about the love you can't find
And I wonder about the loneliness that's mine
I wonder how much going have you got
And I wonder about your friends that are not
I wonder I wonder I wonder I do

I wonder about the tears in children's eyes
And I wonder about the soldier that dies
I wonder will this hatred ever end
I wonder and worry my friend
I wonder I wonder wonder don't you?

I wonder how many times you been had
And I wonder how many dreams have gone bad
I wonder how many times you've had s**
And I wonder do you care who'll be next
I wonder I wonder wonder I do

Like janis sometimes incorrectly listed as jane S. Piddy
2: 32
And you measure for wealth by the things you can hold
And you measure for love by the sweet things you're told
And you live in the past or a dream that you're in
And your selfishness is your cardinal sin.

And you want to be held with highest regard
It delights you so much if he's trying so hard
And you try to conceal your ordinary ways
With a smile or a shrug or some stolen cliche.

Cause emotionally you're the same basic trip
And you know that I know of the times that you've slipped
So don't try to impress me, you're just pins and paint
And don't try to charm me with things that you ain't.

And don't try to enchant me with your manner of dress
Cause a monkey in silk is a monkey no less
So measure for measure reflect on my said

And when I won't see you then measure it dead.

Cause don't you understand, and don't you look about
I'm trying to take nothing from you
So why should you act so put out for me?
