Lyric Teacher


Well the dawn was coming,
heard him ringing on my bell.
He said, ``My name s the teacher,
that is what I call myself.
And I have a lesson
that I must impart to you.
It s an old expression
but I must insist it s true.

Jump up, look around,
find yourself some fun,
no sense in sitting there hating everyone.
No man s an island and his castle isn t home,
the nest is for nothing when the bird has flown.

So I took a journey,
threw my world into the sea.
With me went the teacher
who found fun instead of me.

Hey man, what s the plan, what was that you said?
Sun-tanned, drink in hand, lying there in bed.
I try to socialize but I can t seem to find
what I was looking for, got something on my mind.

Then the teacher told me
it had been a lot of fun.
Thanked me for his ticket
and all that I had done.

Hey man, what s the plan, what was that you said?
Sun-tanned, drink in hand, lying there in bed.
I try to socialize but I can t seem to find
what I was looking for, got something on my mind.
