Keep Off the Grass
by Todd Snider

It keeps on getting harder
To keep on keepin' on
With everybody screaming an order in my ear
I want to be my own man; I'd love to walk alone,
But every time I leave my home, this is what I hear

Keep your nose clean, your head above water.
Keep your feet on the ground, keep your hands off my daughter.
Keep your back to the wind, keep your thoughts to yourself.
An eye on the clock, keep an eye on your health.
I wish they'd let me just keep to myself
I do fine on my own.

I keep up with the times; I keep up with the Jones.
I keep up with the rest of your class.
So I keep an open mind and this close-minded world
Keeps on telling me to keep this grass

Keep your nose clean, keep your head above water.
Keep your feet on the ground, your hands off my daughter.
Keep your back to the wind, your thoughts to yourself.
Keep an eye on the clock, an eye on your health.
I wish they'd let me just keep to myself
I do fine on my own.

Keep your nose clean, keep your head above water.
Keep your feet on the ground, your hands off my daughter.
Keep your back to the wind, your thoughts to yourself.
Keep an eye on the clock, an eye on your health.
I wish they'd let me just keep to myself
I do fine on my own.

So I keep an open mind; it's a close-minded world,
Always telling me to keep off the grass.
