"Signs" as written by Pharrell L/broadus Williams and Lonnie/taylor Simmons....
And the sign says "long hair freaky people need not apply"
So I put my hair under my hat and I went in to ask him why
He said you look like a fine outstanding young man I think you'll do
So I took off my hat I said "Imagine that Huh Me working for you"

[Chorus]
Signs Signs
Everywhere there's signs
Fucking up the scenery
Breaking my mind
Do this, don't do that
Can't you read the sign

And the sign says "Anybody caught trespassing will be shot on sight"
So I jumped the fence and I yelled at the house, Hey! What gives you the right
To put up a fence And keep me out Or to keep Mother Nature in
If God was here He'd tell it to your face Man You're some kind of sinner

[Chorus]

Oh Say now mister Can't you read
You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat
You can't watch No You can't eat You ain't supposed to be here

And the sign says "You got to have a membership card to get inside" Huh

And the sign says "Everybody welcome Come in Kneel down and pray"
But then they passed around a plate at the end of it all
And I didn't have a penny to pay
So I got me a pen and paper And I made up my own fucking sign
I said Thank you Lord for thinking about me I'm alive and doing fine

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentYes, he does change the lyrics. Made the song better than it was. Not too fond of the new album. I'll stick to the old stuff.

    General CommentI've noticed that your lazy ass has put up a whopping 'ZERO' lyrics to date on here. Quit your fucking whining about which version of the song's lyrics are posted and post your own shit for once. It's douchebags like you that annoy the living shit out of me.
    By the way, "HisDudeness" your name really fits you... All I can think of is a huge dick.
