We finally made it to the local museum
Took Uncle Lester out to see the sights
Beautiful places but we've never seen 'em
Though we've been living here all our lives
Ain't that the truth

You don't get it when you got it
You can't see it when it's in plain view
Don't ask a fish about the water
You never notice what you're right next to
When it's in plain view

I got a list of all these things that I'm fixing
I'd rather burn the place and sleep on the lawn
Our cozy home looks like a perfect picture
Only when I've been away too long
Ain't that the truth

You don't get it when you got it
You can't see it when it's in plain view
Don't ask a fish about the water
You never notice what you're right next to
When it's in plain view

Got tired of thinking and the obvious hit me
To find my fortune I'd been digging too hard
If it'd been a snake it woulda jumped up and bit me
Now I'm digging on treasure in my own back yard

They snapped some pictures from the rocket Apollo
We saw our planet like the angels do
Looks like the locals got a lot in common
But we don't see it from that point of view

You don't get it when you got it
You can't see it when it's in plain view
Don't ask a fish about the water
You never notice what you're right next to
When it's in plain view
