I see the people working
And see it working for them
And so I want to join in
But then I find it hurts me

Some say that knowledge is something sat there in your lap
Some say that knowledge is something that you never have

I see the people happy
So can it happen for me?
'Cause when I am unhappy
There's nothing that can move me

Some say that knowledge is something that you never have
Some say that knowledge is something sat there in your lap
Some say that heaven is hell
Some say that hell is heaven

I must admit, just when I think I'm king
I just begin
Just when I think I'm king, I must admit
I just begin
Just when I think I'm king
I just begin

I've been doing it for years
My goal is moving near
It says, "Look! I'm over here."
Then it up and disappears

Some say that knowledge is something sat there in your lap
Some say that knowledge is ha-ha-ha-ha

I want to be a lawyer
I want to be a scholar
But I really can't be bothered
Ooh, just gimme it quick, gimme it, gimme gimme gimme gimme!

Some say that knowledge is ha-ha-ha
Some say that knowledge is ha-HA-ha
Some say that heaven is hell
Some say that hell is heaven

I must admit, just when I think I'm king
I just begin
Just when I think I'm king, I must admit
I just begin
Just when I think everything's going great
I just begin
I get the break
Hey, I'm gonna take it all
I just begin
When I'm king
just begin

In my dome of ivory
A home of activity
I want the answers quickly
But I don't have no energy

I hold a cup of wisdom
But there is nothing within
My cup, she never overfloweth
And 'tis I that moan- and groaneth

Some grey and white matter
Give me the karma, mama!
I'm coming up the ladder
I'm coming up the ladder
A jet to Mecca
up the ladder
Tibet or Jeddah
To Salisbury
A monastery
The longest journey
Across the desert
Across the weather
Across the elements
Across the water!
