If you think that a kiss is all in the lips C'mon, you got it all wrong, man And if you think that our dance was all in the hips Oh well, then do the twist If you think holding hands is all in the fingers Grab hold of the soul where the memory lingers and Make sure to never do it with the fingers 'Cause I'll tell everyone in the world
But he was thinking about the girl Ya, but he's thinking about the girl, oh
A lot of people get confused and they bruise Real easy when it comes to love They start putting on their shoes and walking out And singing "boy, I think I had enough"
Just because she makes you feel wrong She don't mean to be mean or hurt you on purpose, boy Take a tip and do yourself a little service Take a mountain turn it into a mole
Just by playing a different role Ya, by playing a different role, oh
The boat ya you know she's rockin' it And the truth well ya know there's no stoppin' it
The boat ya you know she's still rockin' it The truth well you know there's no stoppin' it
So what, somebody left you in a rut And wants to be the one who's in control But the feeling that you're under can really make you wonder How the hell she can be so cold
So now you're mad, denying the truth And it's getting in the wisdom in the back of your tooth Ya need ta spit it out, in a telephone booth While ya call everyone that you know, and ask 'em
Where do you think she goes Oh ya, where d'ya suppose she goes, oh
The truth well you know there's no stoppin' it And the boat well ya know she's still rockin' it
The boat ya you know she's still rockin' it And the truth ya you know there's no stoppin' it
You recognize with your back in the back? That it's colder when she rocks the boat But it's the cause hittin' on the Cardinal Laws? 'Bout the proper place to hang her coat
So to you, the truth is still hidden And the soul plays the role of a lost little kitten but You should know that the dark is one kitten? She's been singing it all along
But you were hearin' a different song Ya you were hearin' a different song But you were hearin' a different song

Shaun from Dallas, TxThe album name references a line from the Bible, not a specific song.
Dan from Minneapolis, MnI hate to disagree with the "facts" but i have a different opinion on the meaning of Jacks lyrics.The "Cold mountain" connection makes sense in a tabloid sense but Jacks a little deeper than that.In the line "Take a mountain turn it in to a mole. Just by playing a different role." He's giving advice to change the way your acting in a relationship.If you act like a love sick puppy your going to be dominated.If you turn it around and act indifferent towards your squeeze the roles will reverse turning a mountain into a mole hill. Briliant!
