EVOLUTION (words and music : Ronnie Lane) Pete Townshend Well, once I was a stone, many years ago Into a pool was thrown, many years ago Time went by and the pool ran dry Excavated was I, and tempered and beat in the fiery heat By the hand of a man, whose name was Dan, Dan the blacksmith Well once I was a sword, many years ago And my blade was broad, many years ago Wore it with pride, and into battle I'd ride, on a warrior side And cut my tail, their was loss of my tail and soon did rust ,corrode to dust, oh my Well once I was a daisy, many years ago In pastures green and lazy, many years ago But I was et by a goat who fell in a moat And forgetting to float he sunk like a lead and stayed until dead And was relieved to find just how kind it all was Well once I was a grub, many years ago And I lived among that mud , many years ago But I'm a reckless mood, and I gave it a Coo That was it with a prune, and when the good Lord was done I walked with the sun, I shed my skins And tried my wings and flew away Well, once I was a bullfrog, had to struggle for survival And once I was a carp and lived in waters on the meadow And once I was a mynah bird, quoting verses from the Bible I said pretty boy, pretty boy, Saint Luke (Guitar solo) Well once I was a mule, many years ago and my master treat me cruel, many years ago By by was sick, so I moved to a kick, So I took out a stick , laid it back across my back To an almighty crack to my dismay I cast away into the blue Then I was born a human baby, many years ago I remember I was born unto a lady, many years ago All our hopes were piled on the back of a child Who turned out to be wild, sent the devil a prayer Caused the parson to swear so I took my leave To lie and thieve, on my way to jail Well, I've been a tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor Known good times and disaster But now I have a teacher and my teacher has a master And the master is perfection, so he'll help us get there faster Don't need no proof, 'cause that's the truth, and I'll drink to that!
