Man in a silk tie heads downtown
Setting up the pins for knocking 'em down
People in cars all rushing around
Setting up the pins

Let's get rich, find a way around
Setting up the pins for knocking 'em down
We'll get a gadget with a whirring sound
For setting up the pins

Everyone everywhere, some way, somehow
Are setting up the pins for knocking 'em down

You can find joy in the fertile ground
Setting up the pins and knocking 'em down
You can try to fight it till your anger drowns
Setting up the pins

Everyone everywhere, some way, somehow
Are setting up the pins for knocking 'em down
It can feel simple, but it's really profound
Setting up the pins

Rent a tent, build a stage, throw a party, get a gown
Buy a ticket, rent a car, pack a bag and leave town
Cook a dinner, clean the kitchen, hit the light
Brush your teeth, read a book, say a prayer goodnight

Everyone everywhere, some way, somehow
Are setting up the pins for knocking 'em down
It can feel simple, but it's really profound

My grandmother had a working song
Hummed it low all day long
Sing for the beauty that's to be found
In setting up the pins for knocking 'em down

Rent a tent, build a stage, throw a party, get a gown
Buy a ticket, rent a car, pack a bag and leave town
Cook a dinner, clean the kitchen, hit the light
Brush your teeth, read a book, say a prayer goodnight
