Nields – Check It Out lyrics

I want to be beautiful, so I got a magazine
But it made me so sleepy, and now I'm in a dream
A voice says, "Go down to the river between the bridge and the ravine
And don't come out of the water till your light shines clean"

Check it out, check it out, check it out
Check it out, check it out, check it out
Check it out, check it out, check it out
Check it out

I put my head underwater, it's like my childhood room
But the water won't clean me, it smells like women's perfume
How can I wash my sins away with the water from this poisoned stream?
And how can I get my light to shine when I don't know if I can be redeemed?


I saw the Rocky Mountains on a dirty TV screen
But when I tried to polish it, I found that it was clean
Sometimes I want to buy Bob's old VW bug, drive back to 1969
But then who'd be around to polish it when I finally get my light to shine?
