Out Behind The Shed (The Landsmen)

I held books over my head when I was just a kid,
When I wouldn't listen to what the teacher said;
And when I played the fool, breaking all the rules,
I learned my lesson out behind the shed.

Out behind the shed, out behind the shed,
The lessons that I learned when I was just a kid;
And when I played the fool, breaking all the rules,
I learned my lesson out behind the shed.

On Sunday we would rise,
wipe the sleep out of our eyes,
March to the church now, good girls and boys;
And when we didn't listen
to what the preacher said,
Learned our lesson out behind the shed.

Out behind the shed, out behind the shed,
The lessons that I learned when I was just a kid;
And when I played the fool, breaking all the rules,
I learned my lesson out behind the shed.

When I became a lad, oh the fun we had,
Tryin' to sneak a kiss
from the girls to make them mad;
We thought we all knew love
from the girly books we read,
Learned our lesson out behind the shed.

Out behind the shed, out behind the shed,
The lessons that I learned when I was just a kid;
And when I played the fool, breaking all the rules,
I learned my lesson out behind the shed.

Now I have a son and when the work is done,
We sit by the window, watch the setting sun;
And when he asks me why
I'm so careful where I tread,
I learned my lesson out behind the shed.

Out behind the shed, out behind the shed,
The lessons that I learned when I was just a kid;
And when I played the fool, breaking all the rules,
I learned my lesson out behind the shed.
