lyrics

There's food and there's drugs
And gambling on nothing
And all the sleep in the world
Ten cigarettes
I ought to take them for granted
When nothing gives pleasure then you're done

I drew a line on the bank
and said no farther!
but the water continued to rise
I cursed and I cried
I whipped the water
But the water only got in my eyes

I must have been born yesterday
To think I really could have had it that way

I watch the same four trees
Light up every morning
They've been here longer than me
'Cause they will abide
Where I'd dig in
And be what they need to be

I must have been born yesterday
(who do you think you are?)
To think I really could have had it that way
(who do you think you are?)

I drew a line on the bank
and said no farther!
but the water continued to rise
I cursed and I cried
I whipped the water
But the water only got in my eyes

I must have been born yesterday
(who do you think you are?)
To think I really could have had it that way
(who do you think you are?)

I must have been born yesterday
Naked, wet behind the ears and saying, who do you think you are?
I must have been born yesterday
To think I really could have had it that way
