Lyrics

Proving Voltaire Right Again
Words and Music by Jeffrey Wayne Churchwell
© 2003 Hat's Too Tight Music (ASCAP)

(verse 1)
I know better than to run that light.
But I always make it through,
And there?s no cop in sight.
Justification isn?t really required.
It?s something everyone does;
It?s just the way we?re all wired.

(chorus 1)
?Common sense is not so common.?
That?s what Voltaire said.
From where I stand,
I?d say that Frenchman hit the nail on the head.
We all know better than to be who we?ve been,
But in the morning, we?ll be proving Voltaire right again.

(verse 2)
He knows better than to take that drink.
It lets him say what he means,
Without stopping to think.
And she knows better than to take his word,
But his profession of love
Beats all that she?s ever heard.

(chorus 2)
?Common sense is not so common.?
So old Voltaire said.
From where I stand,
I?d say he hit the nail on the head.
We all recant, repent, redeem every sin,
But in the morning, we?ll go proving Voltaire right again.

(verse 3)
Think we?d know better than to prop up such fools.
We give ?em missiles to play with,
Instead of farming tools.
Think they?d know better than to turn on their friends.
Guess they?re the type who don?t care
What kind of message that sends.

(instrumental)

(verse 4)
You knew better than to say what you said,
Hit below the belt,
Mess with my head.
And I knew better than to do what I did,
Go where I went,
Hide? what I hid.

(chorus 1)
?Common sense is not so common.?
That?s what Voltaire said.
From where I stand,
I?d say that Frenchman hit the nail on the head.
We all know better than to be who we?ve been,
But in the morning, we?ll be proving Voltaire right again.

(chorus 2)
?Common sense is not so common.?
That?s what Voltaire said.
From where I stand,
I?d say that Frenchman hit the nail on the head.
We all recant, repent, redeem every sin,
But in the morning, we?ll go proving Voltaire right again.
Yes, in the morning, we?ll go proving Voltaire right again.
