Idiot Song Lyrics

Artist: Monty Python
Album: Live At The Hollywood Bowl

How sweet to be an Idiot,
As harmless as a cloud,
Too small to hide the sun,
Almost poking fun
At the warm but insecure, untidy crowd.
How sweet to be an idiot,
And dip my brain in joy,
Children laughing at my back,
With no fear of attack,
As much retaliation as a toy.
How sweet to be an idiot. How sweet.

I tiptoed down the street,
Smiled at everyone I meet,
But suddently a scream
Smashes through my dream.
Fee fie foe fum.
I smell the blood of an asylum.
(Blood of an asylum. But mother, I play so beautifully. Listen. Ha ha.)
Fie fye foe fum.
I smell the blood of the asylum.
Hey you. You're such a pennant.
You got as much brain as a dead ant,
As much imagination as a carvan sign,

But I still love you. Still love you.
Oooh, how sweet to be an idiot.
How sweet. How sweet. How sweet.

I have seen the entire monty pyton tv show series, and four of their live performances. they are amazing and this song really projects who they are as a group, and also the joy of being an idiot with not a care in the world. I love it. Brilliantly idiotic.

Why is it that when you find a song's lyrics on a website and they have a mistake in them, every other lyrics website has the exact same mistake? Do they all just copy each other?

It should be "Hey you, you're such a PEDANT"

And it should also be:
as much imagination as a caravan SITE

like, whatever ...
you get what you pay for
