I went in search of a reasonable man,
the one I’d read about in books, and I drew me up a plan.
Said I’d like to meet him on a corner if I can,
then we could take either road, depending upon where we stand.
I went in search of a reasonable man.
And I thought oh, it must be lonely, to be the only
voice of reason.
The sky once so rosy, now I hear a rumbling sound.
In silence drinking coffee, for a reasonable time,
He said ‘you’re looking pretty’ and I said ‘you’re looking at your prime
contender for the future…will you be mine?’,
but his straight-laced face, it all folded up,
took that ‘it’s not so simple’ line.
And I said ‘oh, it must be lonely, to be the only
voice of reason. The sky, once so rosy -
now my world is crumbling down.’
And I said ‘we need more, reasonable man’.
And I said ‘you’re selling us short, reasonable man’.
And I said ‘where’s your heart, reasonable man’.
‘Cause when the going gets tough, where are you going, reasonable man?
