"O Lucky Man" as written by and Alan Price....
If you have a friend on whom you think
You can rely
You are a lucky man!
If you've found the reason to live on and
Not to die
You are a lucky man!

Preachers and poets and scholars don't know it,
Temples and statues and steeples won't show it,
If you've got the secret just try not to blow it
Stay a lucky man!

If you've found the meaning of the truth
In this old world
You are a lucky man!
If knowledge hangs around your neck like
Pearls instead of chains
You are a lucky man!

Takers and fakers and talkers won't tell you.
Teachers and preachers will just buy and sell you.
When no one can tempt you with heaven or hell
You'll be a lucky man!

    General CommentI know this as an Alan Price song from the film O Lucky Man.
    But searches at this site have turned up nothing about that fantastic soundtrack to the 70's film - thus confirming my worst fears that I am surrounded by philistines in the New Dark Ages.

    There are stanzas missing above, Song Lyrics.
