The Logical Song Lyrics - Supertramp

Review The Song (10)

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
oh joyfully, oh playfully watching me.
But then they sent me away to teach me how to be sensible,
logical, oh responsible, practical.
And then they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
oh clinical, oh intellectual, cynical.

There are times when all the world's asleep,
the questions run too deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am
I said now watch what you say they'll be calling you a radical,
a liberal, oh fanatical, criminal.

Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
acceptable, respectable, oh presentable, a vegetable!
Oh Take it take it yeah!

But at night, when all the world's asleep,
the questions run so deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am,
Who I am x 3 !!!

Who knows who's so logical.

This is one of my all time " happy songs" I love the message it is timeless, the world seem to pull us in one direction but the truth is to be yourself. Be yourself without shame or doubt! WHO KNOWS WHO'S LOGICAL?

awesome song! great music! :D | Reviewer: bvb army girl | 6/30/13

(sorry my writing's long ^//-//^)ok, i love this song! i actually belive everything it says is true. when i was young i thought everything was always 'happy', it was all ruined when i found out bad things about my family and my life. (it was all lies) as time passed i grew into my TRUE self and had a 'creative' style that almost no one in school understood. it took a while cause before i was not ME because i had 'problems' (ex:depression, bipolar, etc) and took pills to be what they wanted me to be like so i wasnt able to show them MY REAL logical expressive self. when i finally became myself they all thought i was a freak and all HATED my music and art (im hardcore ._.), but i simply fought it all and protested against all descrimination and was my self. i love their music and hope messages like this get out more. :)

Logical | Reviewer: Reds2win | 5/3/12

Wonderful song, think it's about idealistic view on life with a appetite to right the wrongs, then a frustrating junction in life where those basic ideals & beliefs are repeatly challengedby outsiders until you feel pressurisedto question or stop listening to yourself your heart & senses and use a type of "logic" that is considered universally acceptable.
humans are spiritual & driven by emotion neither would
considered logical.

A good song, and so true | Reviewer: Just me | 5/31/11

Rose, I know what you mean, I've been in a very similar situation myself.
The only exception was that I had an artist as an Arts teacher in school, and we could watch him getting destroyed by a system that doesn't understand artists. The sad thing was that he wasn't able to impart his knowledge and understanding to us...
He died of alcohol abuse one year after my graduation.

the logical song | Reviewer: raquel | 3/10/11

i'm sorry, i can't speak good english but...i try it :)
i think that the mesage that this group want to send is that we must be free, say our opinion, not to be one normal person, one from the group, we must be DIFERENT
when i will cry,i can!
when i will dance,...i can!!
i'm free :)

Logical Song | Reviewer: Rose | 3/1/11

I love this song, especially since the lyrics are so true. When I was little, I was so happy and idealistic and thought the best in everyone. But I was (and still am) painstakingly sensitive. When I went to school, all the students and teachers donned me as a cry baby. And the kids thought I was a freak because I liked art instead of sports, and the teachers tried to get me disinterested in art. Over the years, I toughened (well i acted like i did) but I hid my feelings, real personality, and I hated myself and the world. The worst thing about schools, or at least my school, is that they overteach you on things like teamwork that is essential, but they never teach you about individuality or self-esteem..

even deeply in russian Ural mountains | Reviewer: Rem | 2/15/11

I was in architectural school in Ekaterinburg, Russia when it came out. It was one of our best song to listen drinking beer all night long in our dormitory. As for me, I can't critisize it now, cause every sound of the song is in the head.

Damn Good Song | Reviewer: April Boyer | 11/6/10

I was in about second or third grade when I first heard this song. My mom had it on a cassette when we were driving in the car. Next, I googled it and it became one of my favorite songs-and one of my favorite bands. Good job Supertramp!

Agreed | Reviewer: Shanola | 7/23/09

Agreed. Some of the best lyrics of heard, and his voice matches it perfectly...but the instrumental part could use a little more work...I'd like to see a PROPER person remake this song without fucking it up too much but just tweaking a bit.

The Voice | Reviewer: Live 2 Rock | 2/23/09

Like everybody i could say that was the best song i've ever heard. but that's a lil bit old fashioned. i prefer to criticism the song. it was good. song was good so were the lyrics. what the song DOES lack, is a taste of instrumental Rock structure.
