Moffatts — You Are What You Do lyrics

Coulda been my grandpa
Coulda been my preacher
Coulda been my 3rd grade history teacher
Somebody said it
And I'll never forget it

Mighta been my Daddy
Mighta been my Momma
Mighta been Dolly Parton
Or the Dalai Lama
They were words to the wise
And they hit me right between the eyes

If you wanna write a song
Better get you a guitar
If you wanna win Daytona
Better get you a car
If you wanna be Picaso
Better get you some
Paint
Son, you are what you do
And if you don't
Then you ain't

Coulda been a stranger
Coulda been a friend
Coulda been a commentator
On CNN
Talkin' through my TV
Directly to me

Mighta been my butcher
Mighta been my baker
Mighta been an outta work
Undertaker
Down at the SuperX
Who gave this reality check

If you wanna go to heaven
You better go to church
If you wanna promotion
You better get to work
If you wanna catch the big one
Better get you some bait
Yeah you are what you do
And if you don't
Then you ain't

If you want an education
You better stay in school
Get some sunglasses
If you wanna be cool
Talk to Mother Teresa
If you wanna be a saint
Yeah you are what you do
And if you don't
Then you ain't

Yeah you are what you do
And if you don't
Then you ain't
