"Asylum" Lyrics

Supertramp

Jimmy Cream was keen,
his brain was always wheelin',
I can't keep tabs on mine
it's really quite a joke.

I see him down the road.
I ask if he'd be willing
To lend me 15p
I'm dying for a smoke.

Don't arrange to have me
sent to no asylum.
I'm just as sane as anyone
It's just a game I play for fun-for fun.

I told em: "look!", I said
I'm not the way you're thinkin'.
Just when I'm down I'll be the clown.
I'll play the fool.

Please don't arrange to have me
sent to no asylum.
I'm just as sane as anyone.
It's just a game I play for fun-for fun.

Will he take a sailboat ride?
Well, he is very likely too.
Will he feel good inside?
Well, he ain't very likely too.
Will he tell you he's alive?
He is always trying too.

Yeah, but nothin',
no, no nothin' does he say....
In the morning when the day has begun
''Hello, Good morning , how are you?''
And in the evening or the noonday sun
''What a lovely afternoon!''
Well I've been living next to you.

Bluesy Monday is the one day
that they come here.
Yeah, when they haunt me
and they taunt me in my cage.

I mock them all
they're feelin small
yeah, they got no answer

Yeah, they're playing dumb
but I'm just laughing
as they rage

don't arrange to have me
sent to no asylum.
it's only a game i play for fun
ive been foolin everyone-everyone

Will he take a sailboat ride?
he is very likely too.
Will he feel good inside?
he aint ever likely too.
will he tell you he's alive?
he is always trying too.

Yeah, but nothin, no, no, nothin
does he ever say.
In the morning when the day has begun
''do you think it looks like rain''?
and in the evening or the noonday sun
''you know i nearly missed my train''

Well I've been living next to you my friend
but what kind of friend are you?
Is it the beginning or the sorry end?
Will I ever see it through?
I've never been insane oh what's the game?
I believe im dying...
he's mad, mad , mad...
not quite right...
Oooooooo.....
