Bourgeois Tagg – Pencil And Paper lyrics

I know you, I think I can say, I know you
I know you, but in a way I'm not too sure
Cause I can never say for certain, if you're gonna laugh or cry
I don't know for certain, if you're gonna vote left or right
I don't know for sure cause I never know what you do
It's my conclusion that you can't figure people

Not with pencil and paper, na na na na na na na
I said off the top of my head
Pencil and paper, na na na na na na na na na

I see you, I think I can say I see you, I see you, mmm
I see you, but in a way I'm not too sure
I know a man whose father beat him, he's a poet on a folk guitar
A nice girl from Sweden, she's a thief in Zanzibar
One man is poor while his brother is well to do
It's my conclusion that you can't figure people

Not with pencil and paper, na na na na na na na
I said off the top of my head
Pencil and paper, na na na na na na na na na

I used to believe you could figure it out
Whatever it was that you figured about
But the older I got and the more that I saw
I said science and people just don't mix at all

A man whose father beat him, he's a poet on a folk guitar
A nice girl from Sweden, she's a thief in Zanzibar
One man is poor while his brother is well to do
It's my conclusion that you can't figure people without some confusion

Not with pencil and paper, na na na na na na na
I said off the top of my head
Pencil and paper, na na na na na na na na na
Not with pencil and paper, na na na na na na na
I said off the top of my head
Pencil and paper, na na na na na na na na na
