The Ballad of George Berkeley

To be sung to the tune of "Oh, Susannah!"

Oh I come from Albuquerque
And know no philosophy
But I'm gonna study Berkeley:
Learn that esse's percipi

Oh George Berkeley
Oh don't get pissed at me
For I come from Albuquerque
And and know no philosophy

Oh I thought we all had feet and hands
Tables, chairs and beds
And I thought that things were "out there"
And ideas in our heads.


I thought my brain was in my head
But now, alas, I find
My head is in my brain instead
And both are in my mind.


Further verses invited ;-)
