no point in howling at the moon
that won't take your pain away
don't go scratching that old itch
that won't get you through the day

don't go pissin' in the wind
that's your lesson for today

people talk behind your back
they're not thinkin' about your health
don't let them steal your time away
they're just thinking about themselves

so don't go pissin' in the wind
that's your lesson for today

be good to the one you love
what you give is always what you get
show love every single day
that's bound to help you on your way

don't go pissin' in the wind
that's your lesson for today

who knows what tomorrow brings
but there will always be flowers in the spring
so don't be taken for a fool
always drink from a cup that's half full

no point pissin' in the wind
that's your lesson for today
