Lyrics

The old bastard left his ties and his suit A brown box, mothballs and bowling shoes And his opinion so you'd never have to choose Pretty soon, you'll be an old bastard too You get smaller as the world gets big The more you know you know you don't know shit "The Whiz Man" will never fit you like "The Whiz Kid" did So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know? It's okay if you don't know everything So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know? It's okay if you don't know everything Close your eyes close your ears, young man You've seen and heard all an old man can Spread the facts on the floor like a fan Throw away the ones that make you feel bad Kids today gettin' old too fast They can't wait to grow up so they can kiss Some ass They get nostalgic about the last ten years Before the last ten years have passed So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know? It's okay if you don't know everything So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know? It's okay if you don't know everything Tears land on a hand on the chest The old bastard had a paradigm arrest He got smaller as the world got big The more he knew he knew he didn't know shit "The Whiz Man" never fit him like "The Whiz Kid" did So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know? It's okay if you don't know everything So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know? It's okay if you don't know everything
