about

It all boils down to the golden rule, the basis for everything. Not that I haven't broken it a multitude of times! Aside from faux Dylan, I also aspire to a brand of Randy Newman Lite. You probably can't afford Old Ran, but I'm surprisingly affordable — you might consider having me come over and preach at your next event.

lyrics

Do Unto Others

Don’t shoot the messenger
He’s only doin’ what he’s s’posed to do
Talk about the weather
but you can’t do much about it can you?
Try to be the person
That your mama hoped you would
Try to do the things
That your daddy said you should

Do unto others
I think they taught you that one in school
Some rules are golden
you break them and you’re nothing but a fool

Don’t shoot the sherriff
He’s got a wife and family at home
Don’t shoot your mouth off
You’re livin’ in a glass house throwin’ stones
And even when you’re thinkin’
Of nobody but yourself
Just try doin’ something
That might help somebody else

Do unto others
I think they taught you that one in school
Some rules are golden
You break them and you’re nothing but a fool

Don’t read the bible
If you think it makes you better than some
You might be lible
To try and change their thinking with a gun
Don’t let a preacher tell you who to hate
They ought to teach you that hate ain’t great

Do unto others
I think they taught you that one in school
Some rules are golden
You break them and you’re nothing but a fool
Do unto others
You know it’s only common sense
Some rules are golden
Break them at your own expense
