Neil Innes - "How sweet to be an Idiot" - (album: "How sweet to be an idiot" - United Artists, 1973)



How sweet to be an Idiot,
As harmless as a cloud,
Too small to hide the sun
Almost poking fun,
At the warm but insecure untidy crowd.

How sweet to be an idiot,
And dip my brain in joy,
Children laughing at my back,
With no fear of attack,
As much retaliation as a toy.

How sweet to be an idiot,
how sweet.

I tiptoe
down the street,
Smiled
at everyone I meet,

But suddenly a scream,
Smashes through my dream,
Fie fye foe fum,
I smell the blood of an asylum,
Hey you, you're such a pedant,
You got as much brain as a dead ant,
As much imagination as a caravan site.

But
I still love you,
still love you,

How sweet to be an idiot,
How sweet...
how sweet...
how sweet...

(Η εκτέλεση είναι από το Live at the Hollywood Bowl των Monty Python. Η εικόνα είναι λίγο παιγμένη, αλλά η συγκεκριμένη εκτέλεση του κομματιού είναι μακράν η καλύτερη).
