Check It Out

From the album Other Songs

Cho:   Check it out!  Check it out!

Bass:  When you got a doubt

Check it out!  Check it out!

Kid:   Whats it all about?

Check it out!  Check it out!

Bass:  When you got a doubt

Check it, check it, check it, check it,

Check it, check it out!

 

Some times my feelings get confused

When I hear something on the news

About some kid like me who died

From drugs, from booze, from suicide

Bass: It must be true!  Its on TV!

An mtelevision wouldnt lie to me

But I got friends who smoke and drink

So I dont know what I should think

Chorus

 

I ask my Mom when I dont know

I check with the lady at the grocery store

I ask my Grandpa why he drinks

My Grandma tells me what she thinks!

I ask my relatives and friends

I call up two librarians

I talk to my friend, Bill the cop

Bass: Hey, sometimes I just ask my Pop!

Chorus

 

So I try not to get uptight    

When something does not feel right

Informations what I need,

So I go lookin for a book to read

I listen to the news on radio

To find out what I need tknow

I listen to opinions too, ...BUT,

Bass: Cause someone says it dont mean its true!

 

Cho:  Check it out!  Check it out!

Bass: When you got a doubt

Check it out!  Check it out!

Kids:Evrybody shout!

Check it out!  Check it out!

Bass: When you got a doubt

Check it, check it, check it, check it,

Check it, check it out!
