"Children Talking" as written by and Richard James....
All God's children take their passage into night
It's a feeling, best you hold on tight
All God's children hold yourself up to the light
It's a free fall I know

Whispers, captured lies
Come now make your move
Do the clothes make the man?
Does the soul understand?

Strange the way you seem suicidal
You don't live at all so why you cryin'?
Come and play with me and feel desire
It's all in the dark, a walk through the fire

Baby, cast your eyes
A soul you never knew
And maybe contemplate
I will turn into God

Strange the way you seem suicidal
You don't live at all so why you cryin'?
Come and play with me and feel desire
It's all in the dark, a walk through the fire

    General Commenti agree. I laugh when I hear it, and I doubt RDJ thought anyone would take it too seriously. Still a good song though.

    General CommentThis song also makes me smile.
    Particularly, the looped sample of the interviewer saying, "Why do you hate mashed potatoes?" in such an amused fashion. XD

    General CommentOh I'd been getting the lyrics of this song wrong all along. I always thought it said
    Mashed potaters
    Mashed potatoes. Why do you say "mashed potaters"
    and that the man was correcting the child's pronunciation of potatoes. Now I listen closely I can hear that it says "hate" not "say".
