Joe Public – Live And Learn lyrics

You've got to live and learn
You've got to live and learn
Before your bridges burn
You've got to live and learn

Here's a little story about life
Everybody that lives surely dies
A lot of people ask the question why
Some people have to go through so much more
Before they really learn about life's score
The subject is not to be ignored

I don't wanna be the one
To tell you how it's gotta be
Living is the only way
You ever really gonna see

You've got to live and learn
You've got to live and learn
Before your bridges burn
You've got to live and learn

There's so much wrong and negativity
Enough for the whole world to see
I know there's still possibility
You raise a little kid he turns out bold
It may be from the way you treat him cold
I guess that's how the story's told

I don't wanna be the one
To tell you how it's gotta be
Living is the only way
You ever really gonna see

You've got to live and learn
You've got to live and learn
Before your bridges burn
You've got to live and learn
You've got to live and learn
You've got to live and learn
Before your bridges burn
You've got to live and learn

Large, if large is how ya living
Why you're living large, are you taking what is given?
To you, in the form of true experience
'Cause if you're not, your whole life could be spent
Doing time for a crime you say you didn't even do
The only fool that you're fooing is the fool that is you
Didn't even turn around to check and see if your bridge is
Burning, I guess it's true that what they say
That without living there's no learning
Mary, Mary, Mary, it's quite contrary
Yo, how did you earn your dough?
You didn't finish school you ain't got not job
But to the human eye it's pretty simple
You always talking about what you want is respect
But never thinking about the little boy you neglect
Spending his formative years in a living hell
Not realizing one day he'd end up in jail
Now on the other hand, there's Dan, my man
Who planned a scam and I'll be damned
It was the ultimate film flam
He was saying that it was easy as pie
But little, did Dan know he was about to die?

You've got to live and learn
You've got to live and learn
Before your bridges burn
You've got to live and learn
You've got to live and learn
You've got to live and learn
Before your bridges burn
You've got to live and learn
You've got to live and learn
You've got to live and learn
Before your bridges burn
You've got to live and learn...
