You won't learn nothing from the sunshine, boy
Except how to get away from home
You won't learn nothing from the darkness, boy
Except how to die all alone

Time will teach you hunger, boy
On the very day you're grown
It'll come to you like a daydream, boy
And it'd cost you everything you own

So, watch for birds and binders too
Move in a natural way
Follow the sidewalk with your tongue
'Cause it will try to slip away

Find you a friend like Little John
Rememberin' nothing's free
Find you a girl like Gretchen, son
But don't bring her home to me

Keep your eyes on the rhythm, boy
And let the words go by
Rhythm is pulse and breathing, boy
The words will usually lie

The sky was made to walk beneath
And the ground to walk along
Just let 'em both rub against your skin
Before you try to decide where you belong
