Scatman John: Scatman's World

/Scatman John/

Scatman's World

I'm calling out from Scatland
I'm calling out from Scatman's world
If you wanna break free
You better listen to me
You got to learn how to see
In your fantasy


Everybody's talkin'
Something very shockin'
Just to keep on blockin'
What they're feelin' inside
But listen to me brother
You just keep on walkin'
'Cause you and me and sister
Ain't got nothin' to hide
Scatman, fat man
Black and white and brown man
Tell me 'bout the colour of your soul
If part of your solution
Isn't ending the pollution
Then I don't want to hear your stories told
I want to welcome you to Scatman's world


Everybody's born to compete as he chooses
But how can someone win
If winning means that someone loses
I sit and see and wonder
What it's like to be in touch
No wonder all my brothers
And my sisters need a crutch
I want to be a human being
Not a human doing
I couldn't keep that pace up if I tried
The source of my intention
Really isn't crime prevention
My intention is prevention of the lie, yeah
Welcome to the Scatman's world

[Chorus] [2x]

Listen to me ...
