Fill in every line and cross the 't's and dot the 'i's.
Follow the directions don't bother to question why.
It doesn't need to be right as long as it's organized.
Keep the cadence, daylight's fadin', are those the clothes that you were made in?
Cause you dress a lot like me.

Just like looking in the mirror when I look you in the eye.
We're just like each other and we both wear the disguise.
When you laugh or cry I can't help but sympathize.
When it's chilly here in Philly brotherly love comes unwillingly.
And you love a lot like me.

With your heart there on your sleeve, is your shirt just the right size?
Did you get it at a thrift store for a nice discounted price?
And does it make me look fat? Don't tell the truth, I need your lies.
But be honest with your promise. Can you put your finger on it?
Cause you dream a lot like me.

La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da da da.
