I sat before the wise man in the autumn of my youth
And I told him all the things I had to know
He said you have the future, if you need to find the truth
And in his eyes I saw that it was so

So I came right out and asked him the meaning of life
And as he smiled I saw a twinkle in his eye
He said with all his years there's still so much he has to learn
And once again I saw that it was so

Keep on living, loving waiting your turn
It's the only way to ease your concern
If you want to find your dream, be sure
You don't wake up too soon or you'll find it easier
Shooting for the moon

Wise man, wise man which way shall I run
There's so many roads so many ways to turn
I am like a blind man lost in the sun
I wanna be like you, and be a wise man too

But I'm looking for an easy way to learn

Wise man, wise man which way shall I run
There's so many roads so many ways to turn
I am like a blind man lost in the sun
I wanna be like you, and be a wise man too

But I'm looking for an easy way to learn

Oh wise man, oh wise man, yeah
I wanna be like you, yeah
And be a wise man too
I wanna be like you, and be a wise man too
I wanna be like you, and be a wise man too

Wise man, wise man which way shall I run
There's so many roads so many ways to turn
I am like a blind man lost in the sun
I wanna be like you, and be a wise man too

But I'm looking for an easy way to learn
