Here's my transcription from the link that cnd supplied above. It may be in need of some correction.


BLIND LEAD THE BLIND
As recorded by Geoff Higginbottom

1. Gotta roll with the punches; get back up when you fall.
Gotta learn to take your medicine; gotta come when they call.
Never speak till you're spoken to; say what's on your mind.
You know what's good for you, let the blind lead the blind.

2. Oh, they have and they hold you now, to love or abuse.
They can shape, they can mold you now, any way they choose,
Take you up on the high ground or they can leave you behind.
Ev'ry happy home's a battleground where the blind lead the blind.

BRIDGE: Your mama sang you lullabies; your daddy sang the blues.
Scrimp save and sacrifice only for you.

3. Your daddy knows everything, but your mama knows best.
She holds the key to your happiness in the warmth of her breast.
All your life you go lookin' for love you left behind,
When you ..., when the blind lead the blind.

REPEAT BRIDGE; REPEAT VERSE 1

[By the way, there are lots of other songs with the same title.]
