Supertramp – C'est Le Bon lyrics

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...

    This song is truly transcendent. Nancy & Ann Wilson of Heart sing backing vocals on this one. If you're lucky you could even hear this one live at one of Roger Hodgson's shows. I'm so thankful he's doing another world tour next year. His music just flows through you! If you haven't had the chance of seeing the creative genius of Supertramp live yet, you're missing out on a lot. Roger Hodgson Official Facebook Page has all the info. I've seen many, many classic rock legends but Roger simply tops them all.
