The fool on the hill

donald trump grin

Day after day, alone on the hill
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him
They can see that he’s just a fool
And he never gives an answer

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around

Well on the way, head in a cloud
The man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud
But nobody ever hears him
Or the sound he appears to make
And he never seems to notice

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around

And nobody seems to like him
They can tell what he wants to do
And he never shows his feelings

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around

He never listens to them
He knows that they’re the fools
They don’t like him

The fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around

“The Fool on the hill” by Sir Paul McCartney

    Yes but I think the fool on the hill was supposed to have some insight

    • “He never listens to them, He knows that they’re the fools” Pretty much sums up “our” President. He is, at least in his mind, the smartest man in the world and we should ALL be grateful that he would even waste his valuable time slumming in the White House.

  2. Very prophetic lyrics, considering they were written in the 1960’s. No greater fool has there ever been.

    I wasn’t familiar with this song so when I started reading, I thought it was your creation and I was thinking “WOW … he can write poetry too!” 😀

    If somebody doesn’t take action soon, I fear for us all.

  4. This first came to my attention when performed by Sergio Mendez and Brazil 66 I think. Those were not the clearest of times. We had different fools back then. None compare individually or as a group with the arrogant, uninformed, self absorbed, imbecile who currently occupies 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    You clearly haven’t a clue what the song means to think you can take a few words here or there and link it to Trump. I suggest you either study the whole song at length, perhaps consult with people who do know the meaning?
    It’s about a seer, who normals think is a fool, but they are the fools because they don’t understand his vision. – ‘the eyes in his head see the world spinning round’ while all the fools rush about like ants, pursuing trivia and wealth with never the time to stop and think.
    Perhaps that’s you.

    • Jumping Wolf, thank you for taking the time to read my post and for adding a useless, pointless, thoroughly needless in depth analysis of the song “The Fool on the Hill”.

      I am certainly glad I didn’t chose “I am the Walrus” or “Revolution 9”. You might have had a stroke trying to articulate and impress us with your sublime knowledge of the true meaning of these acid soaked, and drug infested lyrics.

      Go back to bed and “Dream sweet dreams for you”.
