Beautiful Fool

Lingua: Inglese



A tribute to Martin Luther King.
Martin Luther, who did you think that you were?
Appointed by some higher up
Merely mortal, you're plans were unaffordable
Nobody wants to pay the price for love

Oh, you beautiful fool,
swimming up stream,
kicking up waves
Dreams weren't meant to come true,
that's why they call'em dreams
Oh, you beautiful fool

Walter Cronkite pre-empted Disney one night
And all us kids were so upset
We thought that you were a trouble instigator
Marching through our TV set

Oh, you beautiful fool,
swimming up stream,
kicking up waves
Dreams weren't meant to come true,
that's why they call'em dreams
Oh, you beautiful fool

To fight a fight without a fist,
all human instinct puzzles this
How dare you threaten our existence?
Mahatma Ghandi, Jesus Christ,
history repeats itself so nice
Consistently we are resistant to love

Oh, you beautiful fool,
swimming up stream,
kicking up waves
Dreams weren't meant to come true,
that's why they call'em dreams
Oh, you beautiful fool

Saw you on the black and white
with blacks and whites applauding you
Saw you on, another time,
without a sign of life in you

Oh, you beautiful fool
swimming up stream,
kicking up waves
Dreams weren't meant to come true,
that's why they call'em dreams
Oh, you beautiful fool
