Stranger In A Strange Land

Leon Russell, way back in 1971.

Kinda know the feeling….


How many days has it been since I was born
How many days until I die
Do I know any ways that I can make you laugh
Or do I only know how to make you cry
When the baby looks around him
It’s such a sight to see
He shares a simple secret with the wise man

He’s a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land
Tell me why he’s a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land

How many miles will it take to see the sun
And how many years until it’s done
Kiss my confusion away in the night
Lay by my side when the morning comes
And the baby looks around him
And shares his bed of hay
With the burrow in the palace of the king

He’s a stranger in a strange land
Tell me why, he’s a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land
Just a stranger in a strange land

Well, I don’t exactly know what’s going on in the world today
Don’t know what there is to say
About the way the people are treating each other
Not like brothers

Leaders take us far away
From ecology
With mythology
And astrology
Has got some words to say about the way we live today
Why can’t we learn to love each other
It’s time to learn a new faith
To the whole world wide human race
Stop the money chase
And Lay back
Relax
Get back on the human track
Stop racing toward oblivion
Oh, such a sad, sad state we’re in and that’s a thing
Do you recognize the bells of truth when you hear them ring
Won’t you stop and listen to the children sing
Won’t you sing it children

Won’t you come on and sing it children
(He’s a stranger in a strange land)
Whoa, sing it one more time, I didn’t hear ya
(Just a stranger in a strange land)
(He’s a stranger in a strange land)
(Just a stranger in a strange land.)
