Don’t be fooled by appearances,It only shows what the world already knowsDon’t rely on the physical evidenceOf what the x-ray pictures showBecause inside every straight upright citizen a tormentedEmotionally impaired psycologically damaged personality residesAnd beside every crooked man stands an angel with wingsAnd the spirit can do truly wonderous thingsAs I watch the hump-backed man hobble down the high streetI say a silent prayer for myselfI was taken to the local doctorFor a consultation about my physical healthI heard him ask about my family - historyYou see, mrs. davies, it might be hereditary. yes it mightMaybe think about my family, ’cause socially could beYou were a physical deformity’cos the world only sees what it believes and is revealed in the x-rayIt only knows what it knows, photographs, video and the printed wordYes/but there is more in this heaven on earthThan (what)/(what those scientists now and) is revealed on/in the x-rayEv’ry morning I got up and looked in the mirror to see if the hump hadAppeared on my back. to my disappointment I was not a freak.You see, maybe there’d be side benefits to become in a cripple,Side benefits like prioroty seating at football matches. and I thoughtIf I’m gonna be a cripple, I’ll go all the wayThey could photograph reality,But they can’t picture your fantasy’cos the world only sees what it believes and is revealed in the x-rayIt only knows what it knows, photographs, video and the printed wordYes/but there is more in this heaven on earthThan (what)/(what those scientists now and) is revealed on/in the x-ray’cos the world only sees what it believes and is revealed in the x-rayIt only knows what it knows, photographs, video and the printed wordYes/but there is more in this heaven on earthThan (what)/(what those scientists now and) is revealed on/in the x-ray
