Back to You Don't Know A Thing lyrics

You Don't Know A Thing

When youre young you think you know it all
Yeah, youre hot rod cocky
And you stand there like a man and say
There aint nothin strong enough to stop me
Til some beautiful girl bare legged and sandled
Loosens the grip on everythin you had handled

You dont know how to drive til ya get behind the wheel
And you dont know how to play until you finally take the field
Well, you dont know how itll go, where itll end
Until you cut the deal

You dont know what really matters until you risk it all
Aint nothin thats worth winnin if losins not involved
And if youre afraid to give away your heart
And face what love brings, man, you dont know a thing

You got your life all planned out, sure looks good on paper
Til your American dream smacks up against the risin cost of labor
Cause they shipped off every job in your hometown
And you learn how to survive when it all goes south

You dont know how to drive til ya get behind the wheel
And you dont know how to play til you finally take the field
Well, you dont know how itll go, where itll end
Until you cut the deal

And you dont know what really matters until you risk it all
Aint nothin thats worth winnin if losins not involved
And if youre afraid to give away your heart
And face what life brings, man, you dont know a thing

When youre on your knees all night for a child with a ragin fever
And you realize this might be the last time you see her
Life holds on and faith holds on and love holds that little tiny hand

You dont know how to drive til you get behind the wheel
And you dont know how to pray until youre scared of what you feel
And if youre afraid to give away your heart
And face what life brings, man, you dont know a thing
You dont know a thing, hey, you dont know a thing
