What goes up must come down
What grows up must leave town
You'll make ‘em poor but you'll make ‘em proud
Pack two bags with your old clothes
Get new ones where you're gonna go
Salvation Army down the road
The phone calls with the good news
And the bad news and the deep blues
You've been swimming in since you been gone
When you go home, you put your old shoes on
Walk around and cut your lawn…
Cause you knew how to mow it
Better than your father
But he knew how to grow it
Around a home with your mother
Now you better bring back something for Your brothers and your… sisters

If you're coming home
Your far away, it's a big place
Cut your hair and wash your face
See if anybody has the same tastes
It's fun to see with who you click
But redundancy makes you want to quit
And you've had about enough of it
Now all you want for Christmas, is for it just to get here
It's been a pretty hard month, now they serve you up a new year
So you're packing up your 2 bags, tell your family and your friends that
You're coming home
Cause you knew how to mow it
Better than your father
But he knew how to grow it around a home with your mother
