I Know Nothing

I remember first day at the nursery

Told my teacher how to spell karate

Land of glory, jackanory

Bad old Tories, same old story

But my whole life was still ahead of me

 

Learned 'la plume de me tante' en francais

Soon headed off to I'universitie

Marx and Engels talked of struggle

But never told me some girls want cuddles

But dialectics made a man of me

 

Russian History

I've read Ulysses

I can build a fire when you're cold

I've crossed the mountains and the seven seas

But I dont know a single thing about love

 

Don't know why my heart's a little faster

When you ask me to stay a little longer

It's in the magic book we never see, we never see

 

Schopenhauer tried to put it warmly:

The pursuit of love is nothing but futility

Unrequited, uninvited

Opening lines too well recited

A two pump chump could outdo easily

 

Russian History

I've read Ulysses

I can build a fire when you're cold

I've crossed the mountains and the seven seas

But I dont know a single thing about lurv

 

Come on, my little china

I know you're worth another shiner

I stumble, please please please

 

Russian History

I've read Ulysses

I can build a fire when you're cold

I've crossed the mountains and the seven seas

But I dont know a single thing,

never learned a tiny little thing

So Never ever ask me about oohh la la la, ooh la la
