Todd Snider – Statistician’s Blues Lyrics

They say 3 percent of the people use 5 to 6 percent of

their brain

97 percent use 3 percent and the rest goes down the

drain

I’ll never know which one I am but I’ll bet you my last

dime

99 percent think with 3 percent 100 percent of the time

65 percent of all the world’s statistics are made up

right there on the spot

82.4 percent of people believe ’em whether they’re

accurate statistics or not

I don’t know what you believe but I do know there’s no

doubt

I need another double shot of something 90 proof

I got too much to think about

Too much to think about

Too much to figure out

Stuck between hope and doubt

It’s too much to think about

They say 74 percent of everything you learned in

college is a bunch of bullshit you’ll never need

83.4 percent of everything you got you bought to

satisfy your greed

Because 91 percent of the world’s population links

possessions to success

Even though 88 percent of the wealthiest 1 percent of

the population

Drinks to an alarming excess

More money, more stress

It’s too much to think about

Too much to figure out

Stuck between hope and doubt

It’s too much to think about

Pick it then

74 percent of all statisticians truly hate their fuckin

job

The average bank robber lives within say about 20 miles

of the bank that he robs

There’s this little bank not far from here I’ve been

watching now for a while

Lately all I can think about’s how bad I wanna go out

in style

Too much to think about

Too much to figure out

Stuck between hope and doubt

It’s too much to think about

That’s right

It’s too much to think about

Amen

It’s too much to think about
