Lyrics

You can spend all your days in the grind
Converting your nickels to dimes
You could stuff all your pockets till they overflow
Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know

You can say you’re too old to be young
You think you’re too smart to be dumb
But the well-seasoned pro knows how long he can go
Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know

You can sing every song that’s been sung
Offer the moon and the sun
But if you ask me it’s all been both said and been done

We’re just recycled history machines
Cavemen in faded blue jeans
It’s the unanswered question in each one of us
Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know

The more we learn the less we know
What you keep is what you can’t let go
Take it fast or take it slow
Just one way for you to go
Don’t chu know
Let’s go now

You can sing every song that’s been sung
Offer the moon and the sun
But if you ask me it’s not in the race that you run

It’s that outcast in each one of us
Who get’s the girl that is too glamorous
There’s no one to deceive it’s just all make believe
Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know
Oh….
Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know

Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know
Don’t chu know

I Don’t Know
I Don’t Know
