MOSE ALLISON lyrics - Natural Born Malcontent

MOSE ALLISON
"Natural Born Malcontent"
(Mose Allison)

There must be someplace somewhere
Where a man don't feel beset
There must be someplace somewhere
But I ain't found it yet

There must be someone somewhere
Who knows what it's all about
There must be someone somewhere
Who hasn't been found out

Feeling strange watching the years go by
No change, I don't even bother to wonder why
In all this great creation
With its incandescent firmament
There is no consolation
For the natural born malcontent

No sweat, questions on the shelf
No regret, you gonna have to try to forgive yourself
In all this great creation
Just a nonstop wonderment
There's no transfiguration
For the natural born malcontent
