Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
I get all confused when you mix up the dates

Don't gimme the pretend you come for the weekend
And you stay for the week
You say that you hate it but that's how you made it
Just to keep it oblique

We're both high high high, high high on lemon sips
We're all su-su-su-sucked in by parlor tricks

Oh, the people deceive you, the kids never leave
'Cuz you make them at home
You try to appease them and they show you the stick
But still you pick up the phone

But hey man, you can take it
As long as they don't shove you out in the cold
It's not getting better, no, it's not getting better, man
It's just getting old

And ah ooh, we do what we're programmed to do
Hey, we do what we're told

I never remember to carry my book
When I get on the bus
You never forget when it's your time to pay up
When they are making a fuss

We're both high high high, high high on lemon sips
We're all high high high, high high on wiggling hips
And ah ooh, you break up your plans for the weekend
And ah ooh, you can tell them the dates
But that don't mean they're letting you go
Ooh go ooh

Don't gimme the pretend you come for the weekend
And you stay for the year
Avoid all your plans 'cuz we're making our day jobs
Into a steady career

We're both high high high, high high on lemon sips
We all claw claw claw, claw climb on to sinking ships
And ah ooh, avoid all the cold sideways glances
And ah ooh, celebrate, celebrate, celebrate and then turn to stone

Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
You turn 25 and now you're all out of escapes, c'mon

Hey the rock writer told me to tell you
Though you're great and you're brave
You still lack that which makes you a star

Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes

Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
Read all the pamphlets and watch the tapes
We all get a little drunk and we act like apes
