Thumbs — Sabrina Carpenter

Thumbs -- Sabrina Carpenter

Somewhere in the world
There is a father and a mother
And the father is a son who has a mother
And the mother has a daughter
Who gets married to the brother of a mother
And they all just try
To multiply with one another

‘Cause that’s just the way of the world
It never ends till the end
And then you start again
That’s just the way of the world
That’s just the way of the world

Somewhere in the world
They think they’re working for themselves
They get up everyday
To go to work for someone else
And somebody works for them
And so they think they got it made
But they’re all just working
To get paid the very same

And so they keep on twiddling them thumbs
(Skiddly-dee-da-dum)
They gonna keep on twiddling them thumbs
(Skiddly-dee-da-dum-dum)
And so they keep on twiddling them thumbs
(Skiddly-dee-da-dum)
They gonna keep on twiddling them thumbs
(Skiddly-dee-da-dum-dum)

Somewhere in the world
You got a robber and a bank
And the bank robbed the people
So the people robbed the bank
And the police came to get him
But they let him get away
‘Cause they’re all just working
To get paid the very same

‘Cause that’s just the way of the world
It never ends till the end
And then you start again
That’s just the way of the world
That’s just the way of the world

And so they keep on twiddling them thumbs
(Skiddly-dee-da-dum)
They gonna keep on twiddling them thumbs
(Skiddly-dee-da-dum-dum)
And so they keep on twiddling them thumbs
(Skiddly-dee-da-dum)
They gonna keep on twiddling them thumbs
(Skiddly-dee-da-dum-dum)

Don’t believe everything that you hear
Let it go through your left and right ear
Don’t just march to the beat of that drum
Don’t be one of them people just twiddling them thumbs

‘Cause that’s just the way of the world
It never ends till the end
And then you start again
That’s just the way of the world
That’s just the way of the world

And so they keep on twiddling them thumbs
(Skiddly-dee-da-dum)
They gonna keep on twiddling them thumbs
(Skiddly-dee-da-dum-dum)
‘Cause that’s just the way of the world
