The Obvious Child

Paul Simon

The Ultimate Collection


Well, I'm accustomed to a smooth ride
Or maybe I'm a dog
who's lost its bite
I don't expect to be treated like a fool
no more
I don't expect to sleep through the night
Some people say a lie's
a lie's a lie
But I say why
Why deny the obvious child?
Why deny the obvious child?
And in remembering a road sign
I am remembering a girl
when I was young
And we said These songs
are true
These days are ours
These tears are free
And hey
The cross is in the ballpark
The cross is in the ballpark
We had a lot of fun
We had a lot of money
We had a little son and we
thought we'd call him Sonny
Sonny gets married and moves away
Sonny has a baby and bills to pay
Sonny gets sunnier
Day by day by day by day
Doh, doh, doh, doh
Doh, doh, doh, doh
Well, I've been waking up at sunrise
I've been following the light
across my room
I watch the night receive the room of my day
Some people say the sky is just the sky
But I say
Why deny the obvious child?
Why deny the obvious child?
Sonny sits by his window and thinks to himself
How it's strange that some
rooms are like cages
Sonny's yearbook from high school
Is down from the shelf
And he id-ly thumbs through the pages
Some have died
Some have fled from themselves
Or struggled from here to get there
Sonny wanders beyond his interior walls
Runs his hand through his thinning brown hair
Well, I'm accustomed to a smooth ride
Or maybe I'm a dog
who's lost its bite
I don't expect to be treated
like a fool no more
I don't expect to sleep through the night
Some people say a lie's
is just a lie
But I say
the cross is in the ballpark
Why deny the obvious child?
