An ageing young rebel
Called what's his name
Wanted to be different
While he stayed the same
That he couldn't
He just couldn't
No matter what he would try

Told by his mother
An ageing old thing
You better go see Clever
You give Clever a ring
Which he did
Called him up
Just so Mommy wouldn't cry

Clever heard his story
About different and the same
You crazy?
This some silly game?
Oh no, no it aint!
Like Mommy said
You gotta straighten up my head

Clever is so clever
Is your cleverness enough
Can you help this ageing rebel?
Do you really have the stuff?
Bet you don't have
Bet the bread that you'll pass the buck instead

Clever sends our hero
To a funny darken room
Where a crowd of cunning listens
Giggles in the gloom

That's your problem ageing rebel
Don't you really know the score?
You crazy, you think youre gonna change this silly world?
Better see yourself a shrink

Cunningly they argue about our boy
Who's breaking down the door
Now he's running down the dark
Diabolical awaits
Grabs him by the ankle
Ain't it just like fate
Diabolical laughs
In an alley full of suit

Forget the same
you'll be different now
Somewhat shorter on one side
Let go
Oh no
Would you diabolical inside?
Panic in his brain pulls and gets away
Loses him a foot
It's a dark and evil day

See him running, limping blood
Something soft is just ahead
Something soft is gentle
He's fallen at her side
She comforts him with kisses
He dreams of suicide

Gentle is so gentle
Grabs the trouble by its root
Bandages his stump
Cuts off his other foot

So you see, it seems to me, a gentle kind of cruelty
Ageing rebel's older
A little wiser maybe too
Gentleness has fixed him
Does he look like me and you?
Footless and fancy free
Think how happy Mom will be

Footless and fancy free
Think how happy Mom will be...
