The Lyrics Are Below

 Ben Folds

Bastard

 

The old bastard left his ties and his suit

A brown box, mothballs and bowling shoes

and his opinion so you'd never have to choose

Pretty soon, you'll be an old bastard too

You get smaller while the world gets big

The more you know you know you don't know shit

The whiz man'll never fit you like the whiz kid did

 

So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?

It's okay if you don't know everything

Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?

It's okay if you don't know everything

 

Close your eyes close your ears young man

You've seen and heard all an old man can

Spread the facts on the floor like a fan

throw away the ones that make you feel bad

 

Kids today gettin' old too fast

they can't wait to grow up so they can get some ass

They get nostalgic about the last ten years

before the last ten years have passed

 

why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?

It's okay if you don't know everything

Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?

It's okay if you don't know everything

 

Tears land on a hand on the chest

The old bastard had a paradigm arrest

 

You got smaller and the world got big

The more you knew we knew we didn't know shit

The whiz man never fit him the whiz kid did

 

Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?

cause It's okay if you don't know everything

Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?

It's okay if you don't know everything
