Never been near a university.
Never took a paper or a learnéd degree.
Some of your friends think that’s stupid of me,
But it’s nothing that I care about.
Well, I don’t know how to tell the weight of the sun,
And of mathematics, well, I want none.
And I may be the Mayor of Simpleton,
But I know one thing and that’s I love you.
Lyrics from “The Mayor of Simpleton” by XTC, 1989.
