The Lyrics

I've been drooling, wool is spooling
I read today that I'm doin it wrong
brain is reaching, need some teaching
stuck on a purl for so so long
wool don't lie, a sweater for all seasons
knit it right and don't do nothing wrong
wool don't lie, no matter what the reasons
I'd rather weave is this what I believe..??

if you can knit please let me know
I'll watch your hands and the technique you'll show
if you can knit, I need to know
if this is how, baby please let me know

binder booking, ruggy hooking
we both know that it's not the same
it's never ending, the wool is rending
you say anything but it don't feel right
wool don't lie, a sweater for all seasons
knit it right and don't do nothing wrong
wool don't lie, no matter what the reasons
I'd rather weave is this what I believe..??

if you can knit please let me know
I'll watch your hands and the technique you'll show
if you can knit, I need to know
if this is how, baby please let me know

Isn't it funny that the person who disagrees with your political views feels compelled to 1-vote even the non political parodies?
