      About "Common Sense"

      Lyrics for John Prine - "Common Sense"

      You can't live together, you can't live alone
      Considering the weather, oh my how you've grown
      From the men in the factories to the wild kangaroo
      Like those birds of a feather, they're gathering together
      And feeling exactly like you

      They got mesmerized by lullabies and limbo danced in Pairs
      Please lock that door, it don't make much sense
      That common sense, don't make no sense no more

      Just between you and me, it's like pulling
      When you ought to be shoving
      Like a nun with her head in the oven
      Please don't tell me that this really wasn't nothing

      One of these days, one of these nights
      You'll take off your hat and they'll read you, your rights
      You'll wanna get high every time you feel low
      Hey, Queen Isabella stay away from that fella
      He'll just get you into trouble, you know?

      But they came here by boat and they came here by plane
      They blistered their hands and they burned out their brain
      All dreaming a dream, that'll never come true
      Hey, don't give me no trouble, or I'll call up my double
      We'll play piggy-in-the-middle with you

      You'll get mesmerized by alibis and limbo dance in Pairs
      Please lock that door, it don't make much sense
      That common sense, don't make no sense no more
      It don't make much sense, that common sense
      Don't make no sense no more
