Lyrics
Tap Turns on the Water
Peak through the bathroom door (Did you ever, did you ever)
See your sister in the raw (Did you ever, did you ever)
Swear you could booze all night (Did you ever, did you ever)
Sweatin’ hard like you’re turning white (Did you ever, did you ever)
They’re wrong so you’re cutting out (Did you ever, did you ever)
Back through the window where the gorge gone out
Yes, you did, you know you did
Tap turns on the water, see the waters flow
Acorn makes a forest, watch the forest grow
Everything’s behind you, everything’s become
Come and ride a river, come and find the sun
Now’s the time to get up and do it
Don’t blame it to the right
When there’s so much to be done
Now’s the time to forget that you blew it
Grab time, do it right
‘Cause the jubilee has come
Tap turns on the water, see the waters flow
Acorn makes a forest, watch the forest grow
Tap turns on the water, see the waters flow
Acorn makes a forest, watch the forest grow
Tap turns on the water, see the waters flow
Acorn makes a forest, watch the forest grow
Tap turns on the water, see the waters flow
Acorn makes a forest, watch the forest grow
Tap turns on the water, see the waters flow
