"Four" as written by and Izzy/avila Avila....
Did you see it?
It was so easy

Did you see it?
It was so easy

It's been so long that it's all been forgotten
It's been so long that I would not know

Would'ja b'lieve it?
It was so easy

Would'ja b'lieve it?
It was so easy

Don't shoot the messenger it's not his fault
It's just a drag when you're the last one to know

Four sleeping dogs lie
Four sleeping dogs lie

Did you see it?
It was so easy

Did you see it?
It was so easy

Four years ago this would not be true
Four years ago is a lifetime to me

Would'ja b'lieve it?
It was so easy

Would'ja b'lieve it?
It was so easy

I found out when I saw my family
I'll sing this song so that I will remember

Four sleeping dogs lie
Four sleeping dogs lie
Four sleeping dogs lie
Four sleeping dogs lie

Lifetime
Lifetime
Lifetime
Lifetime

Four sleeping dogs lie
Four sleeping dogs lie
Four sleeping dogs lie
Four sleeping dogs lie
Four sleeping dogs lie
Four sleeping dogs lie
Four sleeping dogs lie
Four sleeping dogs lie

    General Commentwhile I rarely try to interpret moe lyrics and usually just appreciate their jamming, four is one of those songs I have found meaning in. riding back to boston after my sister's graduation from college this song came on and it really resonated with me. I know it obviously wasnt the intended meaning when moe. wrote four but I interpret it as that long periods of time go by quick (i.e. four years in college) the whole "it was so easy" part is not like whatever that was went through was easy in terms of difficulty but it went by so easily/so quickly.

    I have no idea about the four sleeping dog lies. again this is just how I take the song which is how songs should be taken. yes writers of song have something or a number of things in mind but using music to your own personal interpretive power is something all listeners should take advantage of.

    peace, love, unity (and moe!)

    General CommentFour sleeping dogs, like the four lean hounds the lighthouse keep in The Grateful Dead's Franklin Tower. The four guards of the passage to the next cycle. Their bark sounds like a bell ringing. Don't let them get you.
