She comes running down like water 
To splash around with the ones that taught her
She's just like that farmer's daughter  Everybody laughs at the joke 

And we're laughing 
She don't know what it means 
She just knows that it's not what it seems 

 Everybody knows that she's going nowhere
 Everybody always tells her how much they care
But all they really care about is growin' their hair
And gettin' it cut 

And we're laughing 
She don't know what it means 
She just knows that it's not what it seems 

She's running down much faster 
Home base is around the corner 
All she can hear is laughter 
And that's all that's in store for her 

 Sliding downwards, you're the batter 
That's what they say, 500 up on the ladder 

She comes running down like water 
She comes running down 

 Everybody knows that she's going nowhere
 Everybody always tells her how much they care
But all they really care about is cuttin' their hair
And lettin' it grow 

And we're laughing 
She don't know what it means 
She just knows that it's not what it seems 

She's running down much faster 
Home base is around the corner 
All she can hear is laughter 
And that's all that's in store for her
