Am I Really Marcel? (Kevin Ayers Lyric)





I've got no ambition, guess I'm out of place
Cos I'd rather go fishing than run in the race.

I'm naturally lazy but what can I do?
I was born in the wrong place, wrong time too.

Some people say its just running away,
But then everyone's running somewhere.
And I still believe that the best we can do
Is to know where we are and be there.

Just working for money, working for pay,
All seems so pointless day after day.
I'm happy dreaming and it's good for my health,
And only when I'm dreaming am I really myself.

Some people say its just running away
But then everyone's running somewhere,
And I still believe that the best we can do
Is to know where we are and be there.

For what we call progress,
We're selling our soul.
And there's just too much going on out there
Beyond my control.
