Philosophy Of The World

tree house in antwerp

my buddy matt love and me are always talking about life and stuff, he lives in snowy edmonton and i live in loud sao paulo, he loves coming over here and wish we could stay longer and play a lot of gigs and i’m always dreaming about moving to san francisco to draw more and run happy through the hills haha. anyway, we love the shaggs and matt reminded me of this shagg’s song that is simple and explain the human need of desire. sometimes i just feel like i could live in a tree house with my babe and be absolutely happy there!

Lyrics to Philosophy Of The World by The Shaggs:
Oh, the rich people want what the poor people’s got
And the poor people want what the rich people’s got
And the skinny people want what the fat people’s got
And the fat people want what the skinny people’s got

You can never please anybody in this world

The short people want what the tall people’s got
And the tall people want what the short people’s got
The little kids want what the big kid’s got
And the big kids want what the little kid’s got

You can never please anybody in this world

Oh, the girls with short hair want long hair
And the girls with long hair want short hair
Oh, the boys with cars want motorcycles
And the boys with motorcycles want cars

You can never please anybody in this world

It doesn’t matter what you do
It doesn’t matter what you say
There will always be
One who wants things the opposite way

It doesn’t matter where you go
It doesn’t matter who you see
There will always be
Someone who disagrees

We do our best
We try to please
But we’re like the rest
Whenever at ease

Oh, the rich people want what the poor people’s got
And the poor people want what the rich people’s got
And the skinny people want what the fat people’s got
And the fat people want what the skinny people’s got

You can never please anybody in this world
