Suzanne Vega - Bad Wisdom lyrics with translation (on click)

Bad Wisdom - Suzanne Vega

words to study

Mother the doctor knows something is wrong

Cause my body has strange information

He's looked in my eyes and knows I'm not a child

But he doesn't dare ask the right question

Mother my friends are no longer my friends

And the games we once played have no meaning

I've gone serious and shy and they can't figure why

So they've left me to my own daydreaming

What price to pay

For bad wisdom

What price to pay

For bad wisdom

Too young to know

Too much too soon

Bad wisdom

Bad wisdom

Mother you've taught me the laws are so fine
