Lyrics:King:
When I was a boy
World was better spot.
What was so was so,
What was
not was not.
Now I am a man;
World have changed a lot.
Some things nearly so,

Others nearly not.
There are times I almost think
I am not sure of what I
absolutely know.
Very often find confusion
In conclusion I concluded long ago
In
my head are many facts
That, as a student, I have studied to procure,
In my head are
many facts..
Of which I wish I was more certain I was sure!
[Spoken]
Is a
puzzlement what to tell growing son?
[Sings]
What for instance, shall I say to him of
women?
Shall I educate him on the ancient lines?
Shall I tell the boy as far as he is
able,
To respect his wives and love his concubines?
Shall I tell him everyone is like
the other,
And the better of the two is really neither?
If I tell him this I think he
won't believe it-
And I nearly think that I don't believe it either!-
When my father was
a king
He was a king who knew exactly what he knew,
And his brain was not a thing

Forever swinging to and fro and fro and to.
Shall I, then be like my father
And be
willfully unmovable and strong?
Or is it better to be right?...
Or am I right when I
believe I may be wrong?
Shall I join with other nations in alliance?
If allies are weak,
am I not best alone?
If allies are strong with power to protect me,
Might they not
protect me out of all I own?
Is a danger to be trusting one another,
One will seldom
want to do what other wishes;
But unless someday somebody trust somebody
There'll be
nothing left on earth excepting fishes!
There are times I almost think
Nobody sure of
what he absolutely know.
Everybody find confusion
In conclusion he concluded long ago

And it puzzle me to learn
That tho' a man may be in doubt of what he know,
Very
quickly he will fight...
He'll fight to prove that what he does not know is so!

Oh-h-h-h-h-h
Sometimes I think that people going mad!
Ah-h-h-h-h-h!

Sometimes I think that people not so bad!
But not matter what I think I must go on
living life.
As leader of my kingdom I must go forth,
Be father to my children and
husband to each wife
Etcetera, etcetera, and so forth.
If my Lord in Heaven Buddha, show
the way,
Everyday I try to live another day.
If my Lord in Heaven Buddha, show the way,

Everyday I do my best for one-more day!
[Spoken]
But...Is a puzzlement
