They say we should wear socks to bed
We’ll sleep better if our feet are warm.
They say we should drink coffee
not drink coffee
not creamed coffee.
I drink tea in rebellion.
They say we should walk ten thousand steps
Well, four thousand may be enough.
So many Theys even They don’t agree
Still, they shove it on you and on me.
Here’s a thought for the WEs in the world
What if We had some shoulds of our own
Such as We should live life in our own ways
and dispense of all the rest
After all, weren’t we all blessed with at least some
Too many Theys throwing shoulds willy-nilly
We Wes understand
it’s all pretty damn silly.
