Watch What You’re Doing
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Mama killed a chicken, she thought it was a duck She put it on the table with its legs sticking up Papa broke his glasses when he fell down drunk Tried to drown the kitty cat, turned out to be a skunk. You gotta watch what you're doing? Oh, don't you know? You gotta watch where you're going? Yeah! Little Joe Billy went fishing for trout Played hooky from school, 'til the cops found out He never had a father, was an only child And his mama never beat him, so he grew up wild. You gotta watch what you're doing? Yeah! You gotta watch where you're going? Dontcha know? Well, I knew a girl, she was as sweet as could be But she fell for a man like a chain sawed tree She listened to his lies, was fooled by his charms Now she's sitting with a baby in her arms. You gotta watch what you're doing? You outta know that You gotta watch where you're going? You gotta look out You gotta watch out Watch out! Some folks smile, some folks smile Some folks smile and they seem alright Then later you find out it was an angel of light You gotta love everybody, but don't be blind 'Cause some kind of people try to mess up your mind. You gotta watch what you're doing? You gotta watch what you're doing? Some folks smile and they seem alright They say, "God is just a figment of imagination in your head." I wonder how many gonna be surprised When they look straight up and see Him coming through the skies. You gotta watch what you're doing? Oh, didn't you know? You gotta watch where you're going? Don't you know? You gotta watch where you go? Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Oooh! Oooh! Oooh! Look out! Watch out! You know, the devil's after you He wants to lock you up in his special zoo He's got a cage just for you You better watch out, he's gonna get you Gonna get you! You gotta watch what you're doing? Yeah! Watch where you're going Don't get caught I see the judgment coming down through the sky You want to see Him? Just open up your eye. You gotta watch where you're going? Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Don't, don't get caught Your life is not your own Listen to God. You gotta watch what you're doing? Watch what you're doing? 'Cause He does He sees, He loves you. That's not enough, you have to turn around, you got to love Him back That's all I gotta say!
