Lyrics
There's nothing funny about making money well
It wouldn't work if it was
There's nothing funny about going to heaven
And there's nothing funny about love

Hey! It's not dark up here
Hey! It's not very far
Hey! It's cool in my house
Hey! It's loud in my car

It costs money if you want to party
And it costs money if you want to look
The Baptist Church is a highschool
My hairdresser, she gives me the news

Hey! It's not dark up here
Hey! It's not very far
Hey! It's cool in my house
Hey! It's loud in my car

There's only one way to read a book
And there's only one way to watch tv
Well there's only one way to smell a flower
But there's millions of ways to be free

Does winter follow spring
Like night follows day
Must a question have an answer
Can't there be another way

Would you like to talk about it
Would you like to pull my hair
Plants have roots
But I don't know if they're deep enough to make me stay

Does winter follow spring
Like night follows day
Must a question have an answer
Can't there be another way

Hey! It's not dark up here
Hey! It's not very far
Hey! It's cool in my house
Hey! It's loud in my car, hey!
