Wise Up

Album: Magnolia: Music from the Motion Picture (1999)
  • It's not
    What you thought
    When you first began it
    You got
    What you want
    Now you can hardly stand it though
    By now you know

    It's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    'Til you wise up

    You're sure
    There's a cure
    And you have finally found it
    You think
    One drink
    Will shrink you 'til you're underground
    And living down

    But it's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    'Til you wise up

    Prepare a list of what you need
    Before you sign away the deed

    'Cause it's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    It's not going to stop
    'Til you wise up

    No, it's not going to stop
    'Til you wise up
    No, it's not going to stop
    So just, give up Writer/s: Aimee Mann

  • Brenda from Idaho Falls, IdI find this song a therapeutic as a visit to the psychiatist. It digs into the corner recesses of your mind, and it unearths all kinds of baggage. Maybe that is good, maybe that is bad, but... I think that was that was Mann's intention upon writing it.
  • Maksim from Murmansk, --It's an incredible song!

    First I heard it in Magnolia movie, there was an episode when each character of this movie was singing along to it & that was brilliant!
