The Lyrics

In crystal ball of swami giver
Claim future's told
Tells when we're blessed or just chopped liver
Promises love and gold

They've been around since all creation
Glass balls on chrome
Charge hefty fees give med-i-tation
For young and old folks at home

Half the world believes in psychics
Off, to them, they roam
That's not the way that I get my kicks
I ain't those old folks at home..

I was raised on a farm, world wandered
Many a belle I've rung
Know when the sky's lightning and thundered
Raindrops will soon be flung

I'm smart enough, tho' not the smartest
Know pigs can't fly
Ain't gonna fall for those con artists
Their crystal balls all lie

Half the world believes in psychics
Off, to them, fools roam
This ain't the way that I get my kicks
I ain't just old folks at home..

I've learned to think and watch my tushie,
Seek peace and dove
I'll gobble grits or dine on sushi
Push it when push comes to shove

Don't care to always know what's comin'
Bad times or the good
Won't march to every old drum drummin'
I'll live the way we should

Half the world believes in psychics
Off, to them, folks roam
That's not the way that I get my kicks
I ain't those old folks at home..

I ain't those old folks at home
