about

The Whetherman is our valiant attempt to join the pantheon of great songs about walking. Think about it: Bad Religion, Wilco, Johnny Cash, Aerosmith/Run DMC. Yeah, those songs weren't precisely about putting one foot in front of the other, but still. Come to think of it, neither is this song, really. So what is it about? Exactly.

By the way, the title is spelled correctly. It's a pun, people. Y'all have Bret's dad to thank for his inhuman yearning to force puns into everything. (Thanks, Steve!)

lyrics

I went walkin', as was my wont.
I took off walkin', no mind to tell me don't
Yeah struttin', but everything was backwards.
I said Goodbye, Hello, and wouldn't you know,
I end up ass first

I don't know
Which way to go,
But I know
Which way the wind blows

Yeah that's right, I went walkin, but I was on my hands
If you ever seen a man stand on his hands, well, it was this man.
Yeah struttin', but everything was upside down
I said "My hands got the blues, they ain't got no shoes,"
And my smile turned to a frown

I don't know
Which way to go,
But I know
Which way the wind blows

They say cloudy with a chance of rain in the sky,
But the dew on the ground got you wondering why.
The dew on the ground got you wondering why,
It ain't cloudy with a chance of sun in the sky.
Got you wondering why...

I don't know
Which way to go,
But I know
Which way the wind blows

Which way the wind blows
Which way the wind blows
