I don't know but I won't be told
The streets of heaven are paved with gold

I'm gonna stop looking over my shoulder to check what's right
I'm gonna stop thinking it over and start tonight
Do it fast or do it slow
Do it once then let it go

I don't know, I don't know
I don't know but I won't be told

You're gonna stop looking over my shoulder to see what I'm at
Okay, you're a little bit older, okay, all right, so what?
You did it thus, you did it so
The difference is you think you know

I don't know, I don't know
I don't know, still I won't be told

I don't know and I won't be told
I'm not putting myself on hold
I'm not buying and I won't be sold
I won't find out till I'm out of control

I'm gonna stop being cautious and sober, get out and get on
I'm gonna start taking me over, and off on the run
You did it once, I don't care how
'Cos that was then and this is now

I don't know, I don't know
I don't know but I won't be told
I don't know and I hope, I live before I get old

I don't know, I don't know
I don't know and you can't tell me

BURNS, JAKE/OGILVIE, GORDON
