Did You Go to School Today?

lyrics

Women walk around with crowns that weight them down
Falling over from the weight of the ages
Stocking up on all the good memories for sale
Stopping for a nap now and then

Think she’d ever give it up? No, not her seasoned mind
How else could she read yours?
Giving out free hugs to settle up the scores
Working on a bridge with a friend

I say then
Then I do, but then I don’t
Said I will
But when I won’t I just stay home

I say then
Then I do, but then I don’t
Said I will
But when I won’t I just stay home

She pushed me to the ground to scoop up all the goodies
“Augustus save some for later!”
Please excuse her for her absent state of mind
In one ear and out all the time

I say then
Then I do, but then I don’t
Said I will
But when I won’t I just stay home

I say then
Then I do, but then I don’t
Said I will
But when I won’t I just stay home
