Lewie – The Inventor lyrics

So imagine you were back
To 4000bc
It's another night in Iraq
As the sun melts into the sea

And the local village
They dance and drink,
But for one exception
His name was Simon I think

Now Simon was odd,
Crazy a little clever
He's been making inventions
Since forever

He's the local hermit
And the local inventor
But the village just laugh

Cause everything he's makes
Is big and perplexing
When things should be simple
He's always complexing

But he's got something new
A trick up he sleeve
He says the greatest invention
Man has ever conceived

The inventor
He should know there's nothing more perfect

It's the biggest thing
That he has ever made
And his humble she'd is no place
For greatness to be displayed

So he sets up an exhibition
At the local town hall
And invites every villager
3000 in all

But he has one problem
He has to solve now
How will he move his big invention
To the hall in the town

So he puts his invention
On a flat piece of wood
Attached to 4 round things
Also made of wood

So you see,

He's quite smart old Simon
Not always off his trolley
Cause now he can push his invention
On what looks like a trolley!

The inventor
He should know there's nothing more perfect

So one hundred inventors
Come from all around
To exhibit there work
At the hall in the town

The rich inventors horses
Drag in huge inventions
Will nervous Simon for fill
His life long intention

So he pushes his work
Into the hall
Using the trolley he made
With steering and all

And the sound of the crowd
Suddenly stops
All eyes are on Simon
And his props

But no one was laughing
Cause they were amazed
By the genius in Simon
And what he had made

But Simon was confused
By the crowds reaction
Cause he had not even, pulled the curtain
To reveal his contraption

Cause in 4000bc a new word was opened, that shaped us down to this very day
And Simons...

Invention was the key
To open the lock
It was the wheel on Simons trolley
That stood the whole room in shock

Cause never had such things
Been seen before
Now Simons wheel would change
The world forevermore

The inventor
He should know there's nothing more perfect than simplicity
