Things are Never What They Seem

(Bob Nolan)

 

Read along with Wayne Austin

 

Things are never what they seem.

A blackberryís red when it is green.

The night owl says "who" when he doesnít much care

If itís me or you or the feller out there.

You see that things are never what they seem.

Things are never what they seem.

The bright moon wonít fall without his beam.

My pony says "neigh" but he donít mean "no",

Heís just sayiní "hey"

And he donít mean "hello".

You see that things are never what they seem.

Things are never what they seem

And youíre not asleep, but what is a dream?

A river can run but he hasnít got legs,

A carpet can lay but, tell me, where are those eggs?

You see that things are never what they seem.

 

(Read by Wayne Austin.)
