Old folks have paved the way
So here we go around again
Throwing hatchets at their lovers
Pulling rabbits from their hats
So we could live like they did when
Hands holding up your name
Make a chain of everyone you know
Red Rover, Red Rover send a good spirit over
Reap hope out of what they sow
Storytelling over and over
Send a warning out and make it know.
Days are shorter as they make you older
And every year has got a mind of its own
Battle of the generations
Civil wars leaving shattered homes
The envy of expectation
Versus the need to make a past alone
Hands holding up your name
Make a chain of everyone you know
Red Rover, Red Rover send a good spirit over
Reap hope out of what they sow
Reap hope out of what they sow
Arrested on the side of blame
Aiming down your number one
Sob like you mean it when you confess
"I'm too good for the bad I've done"
Hands holding up your name
Make a chain of everyone you know
Red Rover, Red Rover send a good spirit over
Reap hope out of what they sow
Take a life in your hands
Form a line, make a stand
Say, "Red Rover, we don't break anymore"
Hands holding up your name
Make a chain of everyone you know
Red Rover, Red Rover send a good spirit over
Reap hope out of what they sow
