​Keep Off The Grass

This song is by Todd Snider and appears on the album Happy To Be Here (2000).

Snider

It keeps on getting harder to keep on keeping on
With everybody screaming orders in my ear
I wanna be my own man, I'd love to walk alone
But every time I leave my home this is what I hear.

Keep you nose clean
Keep your head above water
Keep your feet on the ground
Keep your hands off my daughter
Keep your back to the wind
Keep your thoughts to yourself
Keep an eye on the clock
Keep an eye on your health
I wish they'd just let me keep to myself
And I'd do fine on my own.

They say keep up with the times, keep up with the Jones
Keep up with the rest of your class
So I try to keep an open mind in this close minded world
That's always telling me to keep off the grass.

Keep you nose clean
Keep your head above water
Keep your feet on the ground
Keep your hands off my daughter
Keep your back to the wind
Keep your thoughts to yourself
Keep an eye on the clock
Keep an eye on your health
I wish they'd just let me keep to myself
And I'd do fine on my own.

Keep you nose clean
Keep your head above water
Keep your feet on the ground
Keep your hands off my daughter
Keep your back to the wind
Keep your thoughts to yourself
Keep an eye on the clock
Keep an eye on your health
I wish they'd just let me keep to myself
And I'd do fine on my own.

Keep an open mind
It's a closed minded world
Always telling me to keep off the grass.
