"C'est la Bon" as written by Richard Davies and Roger Hodgson....
I never knew what a man was supposed to be
I never wanted the responsibility
I still remember what they tried to make of me
They used to wonder what they couldn't get through to me,

'Cause all that I had as this music
A-coming to me
And all that I had was this rhythm
A-running through me.

I took a tip from the man in the ministry
He said, "My son, better work in the factory"
Well there were days I can tell you quite honestly
I saw myself winding up in the military

So lucky to have all this music
A-coming to me
I'm lucky to have all this rhythm
A-running through me

I'm watching the movie go down
Around, about me
I'm watching the merry-go-round
Go down about me.

I said, "Lovers, you're needed in the garden
'Cause there's a lot of crazy people
Who've forgotten where their heart is
And they don't give a damn
About hurting those flowers and those trees."
C'est bon, sailing on and on...

Sometimes I wonder where my life is taking me
Sometimes I wonder what they all expect of me
Well there were days I can tell you quite honestly
I saw myself winding up in the monastery

'Cause all that I have is this music
A-coming to me
And all that I have is this rhythm
A-running through me

I'm watching the movie go down
Around, about me
I'm watching the merry-go-round
Go down about me.

I said, "Lovers, you're needed in the garden
'Cause there's a lot of crazy people
Who've forgotten where their heart is
And they don't give a damn
About hurting that small child in me."
C'est le bon, sailing on and on

    General Commenti-m imagining a school boy ... some call him rudy in his moments of words unspoken ... but his logic found a way of becoming a boy again so now this is a moment of optimism ... cause he-s back and he learned how to fly in life trough music.

    My InterpretationThink what you like of Roger Hodgson but he is one of the most honest songwriters on the planet. This is about his story, his coming of age, and he's telling us to illustrate the fact that there are others like him. Maybe even the listener.

    Lovers - you are sorely needed in this world of hate and bigotry. A world that thinks nothing of crushing others' hopes and dreams.
