Daniel Johnston - Joy Without Pleasure lyrics

When I was a little kid And all the people, they looked big I never exactly understood How to tell the tree from the wood Joy without pleasure Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all Joy without pleasure Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all My Mama, she took me aside one day She said "you better have fun while you play" Cause someday you'll wake up and you'll be old And all of your youth will be gone away And you'll work in a factory and earn your pay And your fingers will rot and your mind will decay You'll be happy, so happy, with your family and house But you'll never, you'll never enjoy yourself Joy without pleasure Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all Joy without pleasure Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all The son of Charles Dickens and a little red hen Dance the Watusi like it was a sin They try to enjoy it, but they feel so guilty Guilt won't allow you to enjoy stolen apples Joy without pleasure Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all Joy without pleasure Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all
