Asylum

Supertramp

Jimmy Cream was keen, his brain was always winnin'
I can't keep tabs on mine, it's really quite a joke
I see him down the road, I ask if he'd be willing
To lend me 15p, I'm dying for a smoke
Don't arrange to have me sent to no asylum
I'm just as sane as anyone
It's a just a game I play for fun, for fun
I told 'em: Look, I said I'm not the way you're thinkin'
Just when I'm down, I'll be the clown, I'll play the fool
Please don't arrange to have me sent to no asylum
I'm just as sane as anyone
It's just a game I play for fun, for fun

Will he take a sailboat ride?
He is very likely to
Will he feel good inside?
He ain't very likely to
Will he tell you he's alive?
He is always trying to
But nothin', no nothin', does he say
In the morning when the day's begun
Hello, good morning, how are you?
And in the evening or the noonday Sun
What a lovely afternoon!
Well I've been living next to you

Bluesy Monday is the one day that they come here
When they haunt me and they taunt me in my cage
I mock them all, they're feelin' small, they got no answer
They're playin' dumb but I'm just laughing as they rage
Don't arrange to have me sent to no asylum
It's only a game I'm playin' for fun
Yeah, I've been tryin' to fool everyone, everyone

Will he take a sailboat ride?
He is very likely to
Will he feel good inside?
He ain't ever likely to
Will he tell you he's alive?
He is always tryin' to
But nothin', no nothin' does he ever say
In the morning when the day's begun
Do you think it looks like rain?
And in the evening or the noonday Sun
You know I nearly missed my train

Well, I've been living next to you my friend
But what kind of friend are you?
Is it the beginning or the sorry end?
Will I ever see it through?
I've never been insane
Oh, what's the game?
I believe I'm dying

He's mad, mad, mad
Not quite right
