You can't rollerskate in a buffalo heard
You can't rollerskate in a buffalo heard
You can't rollerskate in a buffalo heard
But you can be happy if you were mine too

You can't take a shower in a parakeet cage
You can't take a shower in a parakeet cage
You can't take a shower in a parakeet cage
But you can be happy if you were mine too

All you gotta do
Is put your mind to it
Knuckle down
Buckle down
Do it, do it, do it

Well, you can't go swimming in a baseball pool
You can't go swimming in a baseball pool
You can't go swimming in a baseball pool
But you can be happy if you were mine too

You can't change film with a kid on your back
You can't change film with a kid on your back
You can't change film with a kid on your back
But you can be happy if you were mine too

You can't drive around with a tiger in your car
You can't drive around with a tiger in your car
You can't drive around with a tiger in your car
But you can be happy if you were mine too

All you gotta do
Is put your mind to it
Knuckle down
Buckle down
Do it, do it, do it

You can't rollerskate in a buffalo heard
You can't rollerskate in a buffalo heard
You can't rollerskate in a buffalo heard
But you can be happy if you were mine too

You can't go fishing in a watermelon patch
You can't go fishing in a watermelon patch
You can't go fishing in a watermelon patch
But you can be happy if you were mine too

You can't rollerskate in a buffalo heard
You can't rollerskate in a buffalo heard
You can't rollerskate in a buffalo heard
But you can be happy if you were mine too

    General CommentI think it might say "If you've the mind to" instead of "If you were mine too"

    General CommentIt's also "buffalo herd" not "heard."

    My InterpretationIt's about being unable to do crazy things, but being able to put your mind to do things that are possible to do.
