"You Can't Take It With You" as written by and Evan Dando....
Found a place nothing's ever there made a little space big enough to pitch a tent a hideaway I hadn't ever gone 'till I whacked my way under the overgrowth I found a place I found a place I found a place I whacked my way and looking back to discover my tracks dirty hands and light through the branches found myself a breathing place got room to stand up straight and If I wanna lay around I can find ways to pass the time flat down or on my side and in a while I close my eyes you can be too rich and you can be too thin and you can take it with you wherever you go you must talk to strangers when you visit a new park you might ask the park ranger where you should park you can be too rich and you can be too thin and you can take it with you the things that you learn

    General CommentI think it's called "You CAN take it with you". To me the song is about dropping out of society and rejecting everything that you've been told. For example "You MUST talk to strangers when you visit a new park" and "You CAN be too rich and you CAN be too thin." People often say in regards to worldly possessions "you can't take it with you" but Evan's take is that you can take the thing with you that's most important.
