Whether you buy a thing and roast your own darn coffee beans
Make a scrapbook out of year old magazines
Practice riding and compete in rodeos
Talk to truckers on a CB radio
Candle making, cosplaying, ice skating, crocheting

You’re not hurting anyone just having some fun but

Some things ain’t good to be good at
Like playing games and leading people on
So i wish you’d take a step back
And quit breaking all these hearts that aren’t your own
Leave folks who ain’t as good at that alone

Download an app and have a football fantasy
Buy some funny shoes and join a bowling league
Get really good at making wheel thrown pottery
If you’re funny try some stand-up comedy
Exploring, skateboarding, dog sporting, pakouring

Good for you if that’s what you do

Other people’s hobbies don’t drive me to drink
Other people’s hobbies they don’t come up with my shrink
Hunt ghosts, make soap, smoke dope, jump rope

You could try out fixing trucks instead of being a schmuck

By now you could have learned to play trombone
Instead of living in a glass house throwing stones
Leave me and everybody else alone
