The Idiot Boy

This song is by Ron Sexsmith and appears on the album Whereabouts (1999).

God so loved the idiot boy
He gave him a pair of eyes to explore
Gave him a pair of hands to destroy
Any good thing that he found
He said, "Put this kid in a candy store
Let him run around till he drops"
Just like a bull in a china shop
Everything came crashing down
God so loved the idiot boy
That he filled the night with dreams
Till dusty sunlight beams
Danced upon the floor
Gave him a solo in the choir
Where songs of wild desire
Were all his voice was for
God so loved the idiot world
He gave it his only son to kick around
That was long ago in another town
It could use a good laugh now
God so loved the idiot world
Gave him a solo in the choir
Where songs of wild desire
Were all his voice was for
God so loved the idiot boy
He gave him coffee grounds in a paper cup
And a reason every day to keep getting up
In a world that drags you down
God so loved the idiot boy
God so loved the idiot boy
God so loved the idiot boy
