The World Would Be a Boring Place


( 1997 Walter Farmer)

One night I dreamed god had paid a visit to our town
Promptly put an end to those disputes driaggin' us down
Tranquil times fell on our town and the toughest tongues were tamed
When the wave of a mighty hand made everyone the same

But the tranquil times that touched our town
Drug on without reprieve
Boredom soon besieged us all and we started to believe that

The world would be a boring place if we were all the same
A faceless tasteless tiresome waste monotonous and lame
And when we don't accept our differences, it's a dirty cryin' diein' shame
Because the world would be a boring place if we were all the same
The world would be a boring place if we were all the same

Every house here turned the same old dreary shade a gray
And everybody drove around in compact Chevrolets
Every barroom served the same generic label brew
Every restaurant served a cold fried bologna stew

And we all began wishin' for
The way things use to be
And wondered why it took such change to finally make us see that

The world would be a boring place if we were all the same
A faceless tasteless tiresome waste monotonous and lame
And when we don't accept our differences, it's a dirty cryin' diein' shame
Because the world would be a boring place if we were all the same
The world would be a boring place if we were all the same

That mornin' I climbed out a bed
Peered out to the street
Said my thanks for the spice of life
Variety can bring
Thankful it was just a dream
That could never come to be
A little bite of the spiceless life
Was all it took for me to see that

The world would be a boring place if we were all the same
A faceless tasteless tiresome waste monotonous and lame
And when we don't accept our differences, it's a dirty cryin' diein' shame
Because the world would be a boring place if we were all the same
The world would be a boring place if we were all the same
The world would be a boring place if we were all the same
