2015 broadway cast of the king and i – a puzzlement lyrics

Loading...

[king]
when i was a boy
world was better spot
what was so was so
what was not was not
now i’m a man
world have changed a lot
some things nearly so
others nearly not

there are times i almost think
i am not sure of what i absolutely know
very often find confusion
in conclusion i concluded long ago
in my head are many facts
which, as a student, i have studied to procure
in my head are many facts
of which i wish i was more certain i was sure

(spoken)
is a puzzlement!

(sung)
shall i join with other nations in alliance?
if allies are weak, am i not best alone?
if allies are strong with power to protect me
might they not protect me out of all i own?
is a danger to be trusting one another
one will seldom want to do what other wishes
but unless some day somebody trust somebody
there’ll be nothing left on earth excepting fishes

there are times i almost think
n0body sure of what he absolutely know
everybody find confusion
in conclusion he concluded long ago
and it puzzle me to learn
that though a man may be in doubt of what he know
very quickly will he fight
he’ll fight to prove that what he does not know is so

oh-h-h-h-h-h!
sometimes i think that people going mad
ah-h-h-h-h-h!
sometimes i think that people not so bad
but no matter what i think
i must go on living life
as leader of my kingdom i must go forth
be father to my children
and husband to each wife
etcetera, etcetera, and so forth

if my lord in heaven, buddha, show the way
every day i try to live another day
if my lord in heaven, buddha, show the way
every day i do my best for one more day

(spoken)
but… is a puzzlement!
