The Lyrics

Time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of many things...
Well I'm the kind of gal that just likes to think about
Where other girls just - well - just want to have fun and shout
I've always been nerdette, and I'm quite a geek at best
Sometimes I like to think this life's a quite a test -

They call me the Ponderer
yeah, the Ponderer
I think about, about, about, about, about

I have been goldsmith's apprentice and I work as engineer
Sev'n languages I master, I know cultures far and near
I show interest in politics, but I'm not left nor right
I am not into religion, but I have spiritual sight

They call me the Ponderer
yeah, the Ponderer
I think about, about, about, about, about

Now and then a song I write
I put my feelings in the words
I feel home at Am-I-Right
where people don't mock you if you are nerd -

Now I'm the kind of gal that just likes to think - why not?
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, and why sea's boiling hot
The cabbages and kings, they are stuff for having fun
I try to keep good taste and I like to make a pun -

They call me the Ponderer
yeah, the Ponderer
I think about, about, about, about, about

Susanna - I liked it! I thought the pacing and emphasis a little choppy, so I gave the "Pacing" a "4", but this was fun and interesting.
