And the sign says, "Long-haired freaky people need not apply."
So I tucked all my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why.
He said "You look like a fine, upstanding young man - I think you'll do."
So I took off my hat and said, "Imagine that! Huh... me, working for you!" Woah-oh-oh.

Chorus:
Signs, Signs, Everywhere there's signs.
Blocking out the scenery. Breaking my mind.
Do this! Don't do that! Can't you read the signs?

And the sign says, "Anybody caught trespassing will be shot on sight"
So I jumped on fence and I yelled at the house,
"Hey! What gives you the right... To put up a fence to keep me out,
"Or to keep Mother Nature in?
"If God was here, He'd tell it to your face. 'Man, you're some kind of sinner.'"

Chorus:
Signs, Signs, Everywhere there's signs.
Blocking out the scenery. Breaking my mind.
Do this! Don't do that! Can't you read the signs?

"Oh, say now mister, can't you read?
"You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat.
"You can't even watch, no, you can't eat. You ain't supposed to be here!"
And the sign says, "You gotta have a membership card to get inside." Hooh!

And the sign says "Everybody's welcome to come in and kneel down and pray."
But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all,
I didn't have a penny to pay.
So I got me a pen and paper and I made up my own little sign.
I said, "Thank you Lord for thinking about me. I'm alive and doing fine."

Chorus x2:
Signs, Signs, Everywhere there's signs.
Blocking out the scenery. Breaking my mind.
Do this! Don't do that! Can't you read the signs?

Signs, Signs, Everywhere there's signs.
