Don't Take Yourself So Serious
You ever get the feeling like the world is slowing down?
Like everything's a circus, but you're the only clown?
Like everybody got something that you just never got?
Like every track is tainted with a little scheme or plot?
You ever get a sense that we're all just floating round
in concentrated spaces full of colour, light and sound?
Do you think that we're on a rocky road instead of a higher path?
Turn it in you silly sod, are you having a fucking laugh??!!
Don't take yourself so serious friend that ain't what life's about.
Life is not one massive puzzle to be figured out.
I didn't mean to interject but Christ you drive me nuts,
so turn your blinking blathering in and get yourself some guts.
I wish you type of people would just do instead of think.
Relax a bit, kick up your heels, have another drink.
Don't just sit here worrying 'bout every little thing.
Don't take yourself so serious friend, your doing my head in.
Don't take yourself so serious mate just have a little giggle.
Don't stress and strain and get your brain all wound up in a pickle.
It isn't all that clever see it's actually quite absurd
to think that everybody's ear hangs on your every word.
There ain't nothing to worry about, it's only a bit of fun.
You can't always commit yourself to almost everyone.
You can't start thinking that you are the only person here!
Don't take yourself so serious mate, and don't act all sincere.
Don't take yourself so serious man this isn't life or death
and people do not stand and wait with anxious bated breath.
They're a gang of folks like you and me who happen to be there
So stop your obnoxious monologue, it contaminates the air.
Let's have a bit of fun and games and wipe away that frown
It's not a funeral congregation, it's knees up Mother Brown!
You want a bit of philosophy? Here's some from me to you;
Don't take yourself so serious mate 'cause that just will not do.
