Whatever happened to the funky race? A generation lost in pace, -Wasn´t life supposed to be more than this? In this kiss I´ll change your bore for my bliss But let go of my hand and it will slip out in the sand if you don´t give me the chance to break down the walls of attitude, I ask nothing of you not even your gratitude
And if you think I´m corny then it will not make me sorry it´s your right to laugh at me and in turn, that´s my oppurtunity to feel brave Because ridicule is no shame it´s just a way to eclipse hate it´s just a way to put my back straight it´s just a way to remain sane
Every morning I would see her getting off the bus the picture never drops it´s like a multicoloured snapshot stuck in my brain it kept me sane for a couple of years as it drenched my fears of becoming like the others who become unhappy mothers and fathers of unhappy kids And why is that? ´Cause they´ve forgotten how to play maybe they´re afraid to feel ashamed to seem strange to seem insane to gain weight to seem gay - I tell you this:
That it takes a fool to remain sane It takes a fool to remain sane It takes a fool to remain sane In this world all covered up in shame (-Oh, take it to the stage!)
So, take it to the stage in a multicoloured jacket take it jackpot, crackpot, strutting like a peacock nailvarnish Arkansas shimmy-shammy featherboah crackpot haircut dye your hair in glowing red and blue,
-Do, Do, Do! What you wanna do, Don´t think twice, do what you have to do, Do, Do, Do,Do, let your heart decide what you have to do that´s all there is to find Cause it takes a fool to remain sane, Oh,It takes a fool to remain sane It takes a fool to remain sane In this world all covered up in shame It takes a fool to remain sane, It takes a fool to remain sane It takes a fool to remain sane In this world all covered up in shame -Oh, it takes a fool!..
