lyrics

Shoulda written down some goals.
Coulda spent a term abroad.
Coulda filled a couple holes.
Shoulda kept a careful log
and went where the action,
went where the action was traded for hours.

Maybe shoulda thought things through.
Maybe shoulda taken store.
Maybe shoulda stayed in school.
Maybe shoulda stayed on course
and went where the money was,
went where the money was traded for hours.

You’re going to find the things you love in your life.
You’ll want to give them your best and your all.
But you won’t get what you want.
It’s in the book of Numbers, in the book of Laws.

Shoulda let the greyhound run,
poached on a baron’s lawn.
Shoulda left the gate undone.
Should done a few things wrong.
Shoulda learned another tongue
and went where the fire was traded for hours.

You’re going to find the things you love in your life.
You’ll want to give them your best and your all.
But you won’t get what you want.
It’s in the book of Numbers, in the book of Laws.
