Pull Up the Roots Lyrics

Hello again
Yes indeed my friend
I can tell
Goin' get together again
I could be right
I could bewrong
I feel nice when I sing this song
And I don't mind
Whatever happens is fine
Baby likes to keep on playing...
What do I know, what do I know?
Wilder than the place we live in...
I'll take you there, I'll take you there
I don't mind some slight disorder...
Pull up the roots pull up the roots
And I know ev'ry living creature...
Pull up the roots, pull up the roots

And I know you
I understand what you do
Yes, indeed
I put the hat on my head
Come outta your mess
Bring yourself in
I feel nice when I start to sing
And I can see
Ev'ryone else is like me

Towns that disappeared completely...
Pull up the roost, pull up the roots
Miles and miles of endless highway...
Pull up the roost, pull up the roots
Colored lights and shiny curtains...
I'll take you there, I'll take you there
Ev'rything has been forgiven...
Pull up the roost, pull up the roots

Well I have a good time...when I go out of my mind
And it's a wonderful place...and I can't wait to be there
And I hear beautiful sounds...coming outta the ground
Gonna take us a while...but we'll go hundreds of times

Baby likes to keep on playing...
What d'you know? what d'you I know?
Wilder than the place we live in...
I'll take you there, I'll take you there
And I don't mind some slight disorder...
Pull up the roots pull up the roots
And no more time for talkin' it over...
Pull up the roots, pull up the roots

Well I have a good time...when I go out of my mind
And it's a wonderful place...and I can't wait to be there
And I hear beautiful sounds...coming outta the ground
Someone musta been high...but I guess it's alright
