You wake up in the morning
And you drink a can of beans
Take a pair of scissors to your best blue jeans
It’s a cut off day in a half baked life
And I’m sure not going to worry about gettin’ it right
I’ll take ‘er as it comes and I’ll throw my best at it
And if that ain’t good enough, I’ll probably just quit
Lie down on the floor or make a run for it
But when I’m done being embarrassed, I’ll be back for more
When I’m done being embarrassed, I’ll be back for more.

"Do it right or don’t do it at all"
It’s good advice but it’s made many a man fall
They get so they can’t even make it out of the starting gate
And by the time they do, it’s far too late
So do that thing right here, do it right now
I don’t care why and I don’t care how
Maybe it’ll fall, maybe it’ll fly,
You don’t know nothing until you try
Maybe it’ll fly, maybe it’ll fall
If there’s one thing I’ve learned,
I don’t know nothing at all.

I jumped into the sky and stayed in one place
The world came back around and I hopped in the rat race
I raised a barn and I raised a son
I raised some hell ‘cause it’s a lot of fun
And if you raise hell you’re going to raise the sky too
And if you get high enough, it’s always blue.
