Late Luke Kelly Sings – “Scorn Not His Simplicity”.

Written by that great Irish musician, songwriter and record producer Mr Phil Coulter.

[Mr Phil Coulter visited Thurles to perform in concert, on Friday, September 28th, 2018 last.]

Scorn Not His Simplicity‘.

See the child,
With the golden hair,
Yet eyes that show the emptiness inside.
Do we know,
Can we understand just how he feels
Or have we really tried.
See him now,
As he stands alone,
And watches children play a children’s game.
Simple child.
He looks almost like the others,
Yet they know he’s not the same.
Scorn not his simplicity,
But rather try to love him all the more.
Scorn not his simplicity,
Oh no.
Oh no.
See him stare,
Not recognizing the kind face,
That only yesterday he loved,
The loving face,
Of a mother who can’t understand what she’s been guilty of.
How she cried tears of happiness,
The day the doctor told her it’s a boy.
Now she cries tears of helplessness,
And thinks of all the things he can’t enjoy.
Scorn not his simplicity,
But rather try to love him all the more.
Scorn not his simplicity,
Oh no.
Oh no.
Only he knows how to face the future hopefully,
Surrounded by despair.
He won’t ask for your pity or your sympathy,
But surely you should care.
Scorn not his simplicity,
But rather try to love him all the more.
Scorn not his simplicity,
Oh no.
Oh no.
Oh no.
