This song is by Gentle Giant and appears on the album Acquiring the Taste (1971).

Gary Green: "Tell Frank to order me, uh, two wimpeys and a portion of chips, will ya?
With onions and tomato sauce on the chips, will ya?"


Why do you question
When there's no answer told?
Plain truth is nothing
Can't buy it when it's sold

Save all your money
And they won't reason why
Why all the worry?
They'll spend it when you die

Don't look for something
Plain truth is nothing
Nothing but the plain truth
Don't look for something
Plain truth is nothing
Nothing but the plain truth

You stand and wonder
Just let it warm your skin
Take all the living
Live life and let it win

Plain truth means nothing
Cry, laugh and cry again
You question answers
Born, live and die, amen

Don't look for something
Plain truth is nothing
Nothing but the plain truth
Don't look for something
Plain truth is nothing
Nothing but the plain truth

Why do you question
When there's no answers told?
Plain truth is nothing
Can't buy it when it's sold

Save all your money
And they won't reason why
Why all the worry?
They'll spend it when you die

Don't look for something
Plain truth is nothing
Nothing but the plain truth
Don't look for something
Plain truth is nothing
Nothing but...
