Did you ever ask the sun just why
you look too long he'll make you cry?
Or when the rain falls on the ground
it makes a pitter-patter sound?
Or how about a waterfall
does water really fall at all?
And why do stars just shine at night
and how do bugs get filled with light?
So many things I want to know
can you tell me uncle Joe?
I cannot catch the rainbows tail
even when I run I fail.
"Hold on now feller, sit down here"
Then Uncle Joe tugged on my ear.
"When I was just a lil' toad
I walked a long and dusty road
out back of old man Withers place"
I watched the lines scrunch on his face
it didn't matter what he'd say
I'd listen to him anyway
Ya see he's just my Uncle Joe
the greatest man you'll ever know
I like to listen to him talk
and stand beside him as we walk
it doesn't matter where we go
I just like... my Uncle Joe.
