15. Mr. Obvious (Kenn Nesbitt)

Hello, I'm Mr. Obvious. 
I point out things you know.
I'll tell you that the water's wet.
I'll say that plants can grow.

I might remark that night is dark.
I'll add that grass is green.
And I'll repeat that sugar's sweet
and washing makes you clean.

I'll let you know that snails are slow,
and one plus one is two,
and then declare that squares are square
and state the sky is blue.

You see, I'm kind, so I don't mind
explaining simple things.
And when I do this just for you
I love the joy it brings.

So take a chair and let me share,
and when my lecture ends,
I hope you'll try to tell me why
I don't have any friends
