Supertramp - Fool's Overture (Live) lyrics

(Churchill's famous speech)
[We shall go on till the end, we shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be.We shall never surrender.]

History recalls, how great the fall can be
While everybody's sleeping
The boat's put out to sea
Borne on the wings of time
It seems the answers were so easy to find

Too late the prophets cry
The island's sinking, let's take to the sky
Called the man a fool
Stripped him off his pride
Everyone was laughing
Up until the day he died

Ooh though the wound went deep
Still he's calling us out of our sleep
My friends, we're not alone
He waits in silence to lead us all home

So you tell me that you find it hard to grow
Well I know, I know, I know
And you tell me that you've many seeds to sow
Well I know, I know, I know

(distant choir sings 'Jerusalem' almost inaudibly)
[And was the Holy Lamb of Godon England's pleasant pastures seen? And did the Countenance Divine, Shine forth upon our clouded hills?]


Can you hear what I'm saying?
Can you see the parts that I'm playing?
Holy Man, Rocker Man, Come on Queenie,
Joker Man, Spider Man, Blue Eyed Meanie
So you found your solution
What would be your last contribution?
Live it up and rip it up and why so lazy?
Give it out and dish it out and let's go crazy, yeah
