I tried nudism

Then regretted it

Wear Clothes Lyrics

This dude said to me
“You talk about the climate, but you wear clothes?
What’s the carbon footprint on those?”
So I stripped down from head to toe
Gave that nudist life a go

But as soon as I got undressed I found myself under arrest
Paid a fine for the crime
Maybe we should just

Wear clothes
Wear clothes
You’re not a hypocrite
For wanting to change a world in which you exist

Wear clothes
Wear clothes
Just take it from me
It’s hard to fight the system with just nudity

I’m not saying follow fashion trends
Ideally they’d be second hand
But you can ask the world not to end
Wearing polycotton blends

The only thing I want to expose is that faulty logic’s holes
So grab your vest, go get dressed
It’s ok for you to…

Wear clothes
Wear clothes
You’re not a hypocrite
For wanting to change a world in which you exist

Wear clothes
Wear clothes
Just take it from me
It’s hard to fight the system with just nudity

And maybe you could go as far as to play electric guitar
Sometimes you need an amp to be heard
Yes if you don’t want to live on a lifeless rock
You might need more than a pair of socks
So don’t despair it’s only fair
You should get to…

Wear clothes
Wear clothes
Unless you’re with a friend
And both of you have clearly indicated your intent

Wear clothes
Wear clothes
Don’t listen to those dudes
I think they’d just rather see nudism in the news

Sure it sounds quite nice
A nudist beach at night
Warm air and water sports

But when you’re burnt and bitten
And the storm’s rolling in
You’ll wish you’d packed some shorts

Wear clothes
Wear clothes
You’re not a hypocrite
For wanting to change a world in which you exist

Wear clothes
Wear clothes
Just take it from me
It’s hard to fight the system with just nudity
