And you’ve been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don’t know?

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But, if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew, you never knew.”
