Lyrics

Nobody likes a know-it-all
Comin’ in here, making us all feel small
He might have the inside story
But all the tiny details get a tiny bit boring
One thing I’ve learned, one thing I’ve found
If you want to play it smart you’ve got to dumb it down

If I can’t spell it, if I can’t pronounce it
I’ll probably ignore it, might even denounce it
Well you see it’s a matter of prudence
True democracies are run by C students
It’s gotta be in black or white even if it’s brown
If you want to play it smart you’ve got to dumb it down

You’ve got to put it into neat little boxes
They kick you out the boat if you’re the one who rocks it
People take sides even when it’s a continuum
Oops that’s a big word I think I just lost someone
Keep your head in the sky and your feet on the ground
If you want to play it smart you’ve got to dumb it down
