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 his 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 Didn't you know? Yea, you gotta watch where you're going Didn't you know? Little Joe Billy went fishing for trout Played hookie from school 'Til the cops found out Didn't have a father Was an only child His mama never beat him So he grew up wild. You gotta watch what you're doing, yeah! I knew a girl Sweet as could be But she fell for man Like a chain sawed tree She listened to his lies Fooled by his charms Now she's sitting With a baby in her arms. You gotta watch what you're doing Didn't you know? You gotta watch what you're doing You outta know that You gotta watch out. Watch out! Well, everything's fine 'Til things get bad Then you sit around Thinking about the good times you had But it ain't no good to lead a life of sin If you don't shape up You know you'll never get in. You better watch what you're doing Don't you know? You outta know where you're going Do you know? Some folks smile They seem alright You later find out It was an angel of light Try to love everybody But don't be blind 'Cause some kind of people Try to mess your mind. You gotta watch who you know, yea! Some folks say That the good Lord's dead That He doesn't exist Except inside 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 Don't you know? Because He does, yea! You know He watches what you're doing Yes He does You better know where you're going Yow, yow, yow! C'mon pilgrim You know He loves you He loves you more than He loves this cloven earth Don't make your life bad And start acting like an idjit.
