Some Lyrics

Because I'm working on the opening song. A jaunty ditty with a chorus sung by the...chorus. Anywho, for the amusement of any to see how the Great Books program has paid off for a theatre major:

  • John Locke was a very fine fellow
    And a very fine fellow was he
    And he told us that we knew nothing
    And knowing nothing we agreed.

    He said you mustn't believe things
    'Til you've seen them with your own eyes
    And since I've never seen John Locke
    I know John Locke was never alive!

  • Descartes was a very fine fellow
    A fine figure of a man
    (work on next two lines here, ending with:
    "I think, therefore I am.")

    But many a man among us
    Hast not one single thought
    So when you meet someone stupid
    They don't think, therefore they're not!

  • Nietschze was a fine fellow
    Who liberated his mind
    And he said that God was dead
    And God replied to him in kind.

    (Second half not done yet, but having to do with the ubermann and Beyond Good and Evil.)

    Mood: A mite restless
    Music: Guys and Dolls downloading!

    Silliness is:
