let it show

little man little man I can see
you are not such a mystery to me

little questions little highs little lows
in a row
senses overflow

I’ve been thinking ‘bout this sad sad world
about survival and the one thing you should know
is find your joy and let it show

will you be bumpy like a pine cone
cover your soft heart
try to be alone?

will you be smooth like sanded timber
wood grain winding
graceful and limber?

I’ve been thinking ‘bout this way processed world
of authenticity and the one thing you should know
is find your joy and let it show

all the slick faces on the tv
they tell us be fearful
we are warned very soberly

don’t you listen turn away turn away
there’s different melody to play

I’ve been thinking ‘bout this sad sad world
about survival and the one thing you should know
I’ve been thinking on this fascinating world
about survival and the one thing you should know
is find your joy and let it show
let it show
