You've got to learn the fundamentals it's true,
We'll start with sounds and letters and words too,
We'll build them up and break them down,
We'll learn the rules on how to move them around.

If I wanted to try harder,
Every day and to be smarter,
If I wanted more from everything and everyone around me,
Don't be afraid to make some stupid mistakes,
(?) makes them every day.

I miss the day when things were harder,
Kiss the day they think they're smarter,
You don't have to do things because you can or cos they're easy,
Learning new habits is really the key,
They make it easier for people like me.

And the melody will change,
And the words won't stay the same,
And this whole thing inconsistent,
Constant lack of repitition now.

(Hey hey)
It's the end of the world again,
Here we are just waiting for everything to end,
(Hey hey)
It's the end of the world again,
Here we are just waiting for everything to end.

(Hey hey)

    General CommentProbably my favourite song on the album (along with Twenty Miles to N.H.), the lyrics just make me smile.

    I love Philistine Jr's simple and succinct, even naive, lyrics.

    Lyric CorrectionOkay "Edit Lyrics" isn't working for me but I've found some mistakes I made.

    What he says on the last line of the second verse is "Tarquin knows he makes them every day."

    And "Kiss the day" should be "Kids today"
