The Rules

I follow the rules I learned in school
In kindergarten and hard-knocks too
And I know ‘cause I ain’t no fool
That it ain’t cool to break the rules

The rules are a blanket
To keep me so warm
Protect me from harm

The rules tell me what to do
Keep me free from strife
Maybe they can save my life

They tell me what not to do
When life has taken its toll
Maybe even save my soul

No, it ain’t cool to break the rules
And I know ‘cause I ain’t no fool
From kindergarten to hard-knocks too
I follow the rules I learned in school

  1. Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony!

  2. I guess rules help us navigate life if we know when to break them.
