Hello again, yes indeed my friend
I can tell goin' together again
I could be right, I could be wrong
I feel nice when I sing this song
And I don't mind whatever happens is fine

Baby likes to keep on playing
What do I know, what do I know?
Wilder than the place we live in
I'll take you there, I'll take you there
I don't mind some slight disorder
Pull up the roots, pull up the roots
And I know every living creature
Pull up the roots, pull up the roots

And I know you, I understand what you do
Yes, indeed I put the hat on my head
Come outa your mess bring yourself in
I feel nice when I start to sing
And I can see everyone else is like me

Towns that disappeared completely
Pull up the roots, pull up the roots
Miles and miles of endless highway
Pull up the roots, pull up the roots
Colored lights and shiny curtains
I'll take you there, I'll take you there
Everything has been forgiven
Pull up the roots, pull up the roots

Well I have a good time when I go out of my mind
And it's a wonderful place and I can't wait to be there
And I hear beautiful sounds coming outa the ground
Gonna take us a while but we'll go hundreds of times

Baby likes to keep on playing
What do you know? What do you know?
Wilder than the place we live in
I'll take you there and I'll take you there
And I don't mind some slight disorder
Pull up the roots, pull up the roots
And no more time for talkin' it over
Pull up the roots, pull up the roots

Well I have a good time when I go out of my mind
And it's a wonderful place and I can't wait to be there
And I hear beautiful sounds coming outa the ground
Someone must've been high but I guess it's alright
