Dave Matthews Band and Dave Matthews Dodo Lyrics

Last updated: 03/17/2009 11:00:00 AM

Once upon a time
When the world was just a pancake
Fears would arise
That if you went too far you’d fall
But with the passage of time
It all became more of a ball.
We’re as sure of that
As we all once were when the world was flat

So I wonder this
As life billows smoke inside my head
This little game where nothing is sure, oh
Why would you play by the rules?
Who did, you did, you
Who did, you did, you

When was she killed
The very last dodo bird
And was she aware
She was the very last one

So I wonder this
As life billows smoke inside my head
This little game where nothing is sure, oh
Why would you play by the rules?
Who did, you did, you
Who did, you did, you
You say who did, well you did, you

If all the things that you are saying love
Were true enough but still
What is all the worrying about
When you can work it out
When you can work it

Oh I wonder this
As life billows smoke inside my head
This little game where nothing is sure
Why would you play by the rules?
Who did, you did, you
Who did, you did, you
You say who did, well you did, it’s you

Dave Matthews and a South African Trip. | Reviewer: Iain Benson | 3/17/09

This disc was in the CD player of a car a friend lent me to drive from Pietermaritzburg to Mandeni to visit an AIDS/HIV hospice there. All the way through Durban and up the coast it played and is forever South Africa and the beauty of the cane fields blowing in Kwa Zulu Natal and even now listening to it in the Southwest of France that first listening of a much loved album brings it all back. Dave Matthews, you have given SO much with your music. Thank you! Best and go well, Iain Benson, Hautes Pyrenees.



i love this song | Reviewer: trish crapo | 6/19/07

I keep waking up with the melody and refrain of this song in my head: Why would you play by the rules? Interesting question for all of us who want to live consciously.
