Lyrics

Timmy can read, and I don't know

You just give him some time

Someday he'll be gone

Timmy can read, and I don't know

You just give him some time

He'll be on his own

Finding him a home

Don't be alarmed, he'll do no harm, oh

Fools on the hills, collecting his bills

They'll someday watch him fly

He will hit the sky

Yes, he will hit the sky

When he sings this song

 

Rock and row the boat 

We dive to surf on back to shore and sing

Who stole the money, sing

Who stole the money, sing

Rock and roll, their kings

They had but one song to sing, sing

One, little honey, sing

One, little honey

 

Those days is gone, oo-oo-oo-oo 

Those days is gone, gone, little honey

So, one last time let's 

All just sing that song

 

Boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da, boom boom

Boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da, boom 

Little girl, you gotta lot to learn

Times can take a turn

Now give me back my high school ring

 

oh-oh-oh-oh, hi-yi-yi, ho-oh-oh, hi-yi-yi-, ho-oh-oh, hi-yi-yi

yoh

 

Oh, I'm so sorry

Yes, I'm so sorry

Oh, I's so sorry

If I'm wrong

I'll sing your every song
