The Logical Song

Chords and lyrics for The Logical Song by Supertramp

Cm 
When I was young, it seemed that
G#maj7 
life was so wonderful,
 
a  
A# 
miracle, oh it was beau
 
tiful, magical.
 
And all the  
Cm 
birds in the trees, well they’d be
G#maj7 
singing so happily,
 
jo
A# 
yfully, 
 
playfu
 
lly watching me.
 
But then they  
Cm 
send me away to teach me
G#maj7 
how to be sensible,
 
lo
A# 
gical, 
 
respons
 
ible, practical.
 
And they s
Cm 
howed me a world where I could
G#maj7 
be so dependable,
 
cl
A# 
inical, 
 
intel
 
lectual, cynical.
 
There are t
Eb 
imes when all the world’s asleep,
 
the questions run too  
G#maj7 
deep
 
for such a simple  
C# 
man
A#m7 
.
 
 
Won’t you p
Eb 
lease, please tell me what we’ve learned
 
I know it sounds  
G#maj7 
absurd
 
but please tell me who I  
C# 
am.
A#m7 
 
 
but please tell me who I  
A#m7 
am.

Rosie Had Everything Planned

Chords and lyrics for Rosie Had Everything Planned by Supertramp

Acting upon information received
Rosie had everything planned
Stood in the garden with shotgun in hand
What a woman

Whilst entertaining the headlines next day

Rosie would not be released
If it was found that her man was deceased

Oh but Rosie, a girl with a strange kind of hu – mour

Stupidly took in a rumour
Making her think that she’d lost
Double-crossed by a man who was dear …

Stood in the garden and shaking her head

Rosie could not understand
Wiping her eyes with the back of her hand
 
Sad, sad  
C 
woman

Oh but Rosie, how could a few words have made her

Certain that he had betrayed her
Making her think that she’d lost
 
Double-crossed by a man who was dear – very near to her
tacet 

Row upon row of angel-hair

Rosie had everything planned
Sure that the people would not understand
 
Sad, sad wo
tacet 
man
