And the sign said
"Long-haired freaky people need not apply"
So I tucked my hair up under my hat
And I went in to ask him why

He said, "You look like a fine up-standin' young man
I think you'll do"
So I took off my hat and said, "Imagine that
Huh, me workin' for you"

Whoa, sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that
Can't you read the sign?

And the sign said
"Anybody caught trespassin'
Will be shot on sight"
So I jumped on the fence and I yelled at the house

"Hey, what gives you the right
To put up a fence to keep me out
But to keep Mother Nature in?
If God was here, He'd tell you to your face
'Man, you're some kind of sinner'"

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that
Can't you read the sign?

Now, hey you, Mister, can't you read?
You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat
You can't even watch no, you can't eat
You ain't supposed to be here
The sign said, "You've got to have a membership card
To get inside"

And the sign said, "Everybody welcome
Come in, kneel down and pray"
But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all
I didn't have a penny to pay

So I got me a pen and a paper
And I made up my own little sign
I said, "Thank you, Lord, for thinkin' 'bout me
I'm alive and doin' fine"

Whoo, sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that
Can't you read the sign?

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
