I want to sit with you at Brown Park
We can watch kids play baseball in the field below
My little boy likes the swing, the horse, and the sand
I'm sorry I swung so high if it brushed your hand
Just shake it off, ha!
We're vibrating on a hazel wire, on a hazel wire
They never taught us how to play
We learned to flow like wind in waves

I want to wait for you by the poolside
To tell a joke to make you laugh so long
The pool was overfull
The people were diving and splashing in the water
Oh yes they were, oh yes they were
They never taught us how to swim
We learned to drift on an endless sea, so easily
So easily, easily

I want to play with you at Brown Park
Until the hills settle down in clean, fresh snow
Then I will sleigh by you on an incline, la, la, la
And these proud valleys turn into hills just in time
They never taught us how to sing
We learned to follow the drum inside, go!
They never taught us how to breathe
We learned to listen for the wind outside

They never taught us how to play
We learned to flow like wind in waves, everyday
They never taught us how to swim
We learned to drift on an endless sea, easily
They never taught us how to sing
We learned to follow the drum inside, c'mon, one more time
They never taught us how to breathe
We learned to listen for the wind outside

    General CommentThis song has a very Ben Folds-ish feel. Am I the only one who thinks that? This sounds like something off "Rocking the Suburbs" or "Songs for Silverman". This song would be better with a chorus, but it's still good.
