​Keep A Wise Mind

This song is by Bell + Arc and appears on the album Bell + Arc (1971).

Oh, I got into trouble just the other night
And I got myself thrown in a jail
There's nowhere to go if you get what I mean
There was only this rusty old pail

Keep a wise wise mind
Keep a wise wise mind
Keep a wise wise mind
And you won't be so troubled and blind

The jailer, he beat me and he kicked me all night
He's got trouble at home with his wife
He refused to be nice so I kept him on ice
And he dug me the rest of his life

Keep a wise wise mind
Keep a wise wise mind
Keep a wise wise mind
And you won't be so troubled and blind, oh yeah
So blind, yeah, oh yeah

Said ask me no questions, I'll give you no lies
Just kinda keep outta my way
'Cause I've got thirty days and a punch in the eyes
And I've only got more things to say

Keep a wise wise mind
Keep a wise wise mind
Keep a wise wise mind
And you won't be so troubled, you won't be so troubled
You won't be so troubled and blind
Oh yeah, all right, yeah, all right, all right, yeah
