I ain't going to go to work, I ain't going to go to school

Life is just too complicated, to be somebody's fool

My side of the mountain, my side of the road

To live on what you need, not on what you own



To go, and make do, to get back to nature

To live, and breathe, to see but not to own

I'm going to camp out, in the trees by the freeway

Misty ice-plant, running water, and plenty of shade



Well first I'll get me a hammock

Then I'll get some food

Then I guess I could read or write

I won't have much to do

No more getting up early

Or having to go to bed

I'll do just what I want to do

Whatever comes to my head



To go, and make do, to get back to nature

To live, and breathe, to see but not to own

I'm going to camp out, in the trees by the freeway

Misty ice-plant, running water, and plenty of shade



There's a few things a modern man begins to miss from the modern world

Like a car, a color TV, a radio and a modern girl

But I'd rather miss all of that than get caught in the rat race trap

It really ain't so bad learning to live and breathe as a natural man



I ain't going to go to work, I ain't going to go to school

Life is just too complicated, to be somebody's fool

My side of the mountain, my side of the road

To live on what you need, not on what you owe
