When I'm giving advice to others
I take more than I can give
It's a birds eye view
What I want you to do or how to live

And I really don't have to suffer
I still do it anyway
I'm a diamond in the rough
Or I'm a dirt clod in the clay

Guess what I lost my job
It's just my luck

Reveal you've always been the actor
With those puppy dog eyes
Well one of y'all is telling the truth
The other one is lies

It's someone else's fault so often
You getting rude, getting tall
It's a great big world
Darling your translations is just a little off

So what, you made a mistake
You try to hide the time
The time is life
Gets a little bit larger everyday
It grows
Gets out of control

I've been giving my advice to others
I try to tell them how to live
A little lying, a bit of truth
What I'd like for you to do and how to give

And I really didn't need to suffer
Still did it anyway
What a great big world
I better find some way to stay

Guess what you're getting old
Still gotta grow up
