You can't break your eggs to count your chickens
And you can't break your neck to keep your ducks all in a row
But don't think every chance you take, has to mean a new mistake
It ain't necessarily so

Now depending on the soil and the season
You can plant a seed and you can watch it grow
But you can't have a guarantee 'cause everything that aught to be
Ain't necessarily so

I laugh when I can and I live with the rest
I learned that holdin' on means lettin' go
I try to be a friend to the person on my left
They say you just can't be too careful who you know
But that ain't necessarily so

I'd like to have more faith in human logic
Basin' all the rules on the proof that you can show
But I can't take my guesses back that I based on all those facts
That ain't necessarily so

And every time I follow what I'm feelin'
I end up in the same place my heart would have me go
If there's one rule of life I trust, it's everything outside your gut
Ain't necessarily so

I laugh when I can and I live with the rest
I learned that holdin' on means lettin' go
I try to be a friend to the person on my left
They say you just can't be too careful who you know
But that ain't necessarily so

I laugh when I can and I live with the rest
I learned that holdin' on means lettin' go
I try to be a friend to the person on my left
They say you just can't be too careful who you know
But that ain't necessarily so
