what would you say
if i asked you a rhetorical question

and what is the meaning of life?
tell me “yes or no”

that was a trick question
or was it?

i don’t know
i don’t have all the answers now
how could i
when i don’t even have all the questions?

ironically i complain that
i do not get sarcasm
isn’t that just great?
i wanna be a positive person
but that seems so unlikely

sometimes i think
my mind is playing tricks on me
therefore i’m always right

people say that happiness is a choice
but i can never make up my mind

and i know i’m getting older
cause now i’m old enough
to remember being younger
and now i reminisce about nostalgia
cause it used to be better

what if the good old days
never happened and
we just don’t remember?
the future is running late
this trip down memory lane
is taking us forever

i always hear people say
money can’t buy happiness
but what if i paid them off?
maybe then they’d finally shut up about it
and nothing would make me happier

don’t bother to explain cause
it’ll just go in one ear and right out the other
i don’t know anything
but i think therefore i am
or well at least i think so

i am so totally vain
i probably think this song is about me
even though it’s vague
but enough about carly simon
let’s talk about me
