A Soapbox Opera Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I hear only what I want to hear
But, I have to believe in something
Have to believe just the one thing

I said, "Father Washington, you're all mixed up
Collecting sinners in an old tin cup
Well, spare a listen for a restless fool
There's something missing when I need your rules"

Well, hey there
And you tell me you're a holy man
But, although I am just a beginner
Oh I don't see you as a winner

I said, "Sister Robinson, you're all washed up
Collecting teardrops in a paper cup
If I could tell you what you need to know
If I could help you to get on with the show"

But Father Ebenezer
There's a storm in my head
Makes me feel what you said
Just wasn't true

So, what am I to do?
Well, what is she to do?
Oh, what is there to do?
Yeah baby go to the play

All creatures great and small
All things wise and wonderful
The Lord, God made them all

Mary, oh tell me what I'm living for
Because I feel like I'm tossed in the river
Oh have You a son to deliver?

I said, "Father Washington, you're all mixed up
Collecting sinners in an old tin cup
You tell the children what they need to know
But, will they listen when it's time to go"

Oh, Sister Robinson, you're all washed up
Collecting teardrops in a paper cup
Can someone tell me what I need to know?
Can someone help me to get on with the show?
