One of my favour Kevin's song :

The World Is Full Of Fools (Kevin Coyne/Bob Ward- 1979)

The big bookcase it hides the window
It means I cannot see out
No ragged heads, no ragged minds are
Going to mess me, mess me about
Going to keep it right, don't mention the night
Down by the lakeside, I'm sitting with pamphlets strewn all over me
White squares of paper full of ideas
I throw them all in into the sea
They sail away, sail away
Because the world is full of fools
Ah, the world is full of fools
Yes, the world is full of fools
But it doesn't make them bad people
It's a sunny day, sun like a bauble rolling over the sky
Telephone conversation, someone tells me the weather is
Mighty fine, the sun's divine
Come on outside, enjoy yourself
But I can't, I don't know why
Maybe you can change that for me
I know I'm deep
I seem to be asleep
Hold me now, squeeze me now
You can do it somehow
It's not too late
Tell me, tell me, tell me
The world is full of fools
Yes, the world is full of fools
Oh, the world is full of fools
But it doesn't make me a bad person

That's all! Enjoy !
And don't blame Mandy ! :-)

Cheers Folks!
