MOSE ALLISON lyrics - You Can't Push People Around

MOSE ALLISON
"You Can't Push People Around"
(Mose Allison)

Thousands of years of livin' an' dyin'
Rivers of tears from laughin' and cryin'
But now you want to earn your cap and gown
But you can't push people around
But you can't push people around

Easy on the first pronoun
Sooner or later it will all come down
'Cause you can't push people around
Kingdoms rising and empires fallin'
Practices, policies, slightly appalling
Wearing a helmet or wearing a crown
You can't push people around

Prophets and heroes comin' an' goin'
Dreamers an' madmen reaping and sowing
Even if you come from the best part of town
You can't push people around
You can't push people around

Easy on the first pronoun
Sooner or later it will all come down
'Cause you can't push people around
Sooner or later it will all come down
'Cause you can't push people around
