Try to think back Time gone by Not much come back But one thing I Do remember, Remember words were said * Time fills the pages Turn the page Time will not stop It will have its way on you Received a letter from overseas It said if you come back Would you like to see me Then I recognized me Time has changed my face (*Repeat 2 times) I saw my brother Last week today I said, "What's been goin'?" He said, "Same old thing" Do you remember When time was all we had Never count the hours Didn't count the days Never stopped to wonder, What time would bring Time would bring Time would bring Time would bring Time would bring Time would bring
Boredom saturation It's a never ending clue Isn't just to fill the time When there's nothing else to do She drove on out of New York She had enough insane And drivin' just though Texas two days She ended up in L.A. Shuffle it all Shuffle it all, yeah Shuffle it all Pack up your life again A pile of records spread out The covers still look good Picture here a Peter Tosh's startin' down and a smokin' wood My dog dreaming is running I see him twitch a paw My woman playing Dr. Mario On the TV all night long Just another cigarette Staring at the moon, yeah Then I'm headin' off to bed Sleepin' without you, yeah Shuffle it all Shuffle it all, yeah Pack up your bags again It's a long and winding road Sure enjoy the view, yeah If you want to see it Just slow down You're so welcome to come along Lookin' for a tune to play I'm gonna see it again When the day is over Try to write you 'bout the rain Feel the motors winding on There ain't no news If you see those old friends out there Tell them that I send my love Wake up, time to leave again Try to find my shoes Put the luggage in the van Roll up your Doctor Dolittle Shuffle it all Shuffle it all, yeah Shuffle it all Pack up your things again Shuffle it all (Keep movin' along) Shuffle it all (Keep movin' along) Shuffle it all (Keep movin' along) Pack up your life again Keep on shufflin'
I said what do you want I said what I think you better go Where the lights are low now Try to come to blow Play you one more song now You wanna know the score You're just a bag of trouble You haven't got a clue Your face ain't too humble * Do you wanna do it Do you wanna do it Do you wanna do it again Do you wanna do it Do you wanna do it Do you wanna do it again Yeah, lookin' for a home Lookin' for some money Sugar daddy gone You gotta work now, honey (*Repeat 2 times)
Drunk and . . . Took a hit down by the train track I hear the whistle's song As . . . We made a big dash Really packed a killer A change of time Packed up and left Goodbye the train track You're lucky if I do We'll go west And get some big cash We're lookin' back to see the way Just keep a movin' You keep away I say You got to change your backdrop You got to keep a base Ten foot tall, lookin' up From the bottom of a beer glass It's too insane, in my blood My hand is showin' like a road map So I got on to catch a breeze I hated to go back But when I think of all those times I just love the highlife Just keep a rollin' Just keep a movin' I say You got to change your backdrop You got to keep a base I said, oh it's so clear Oh it's so clear Oh it's so clear Said, I said If you crawl to get on up You're gonna level and get there The feeling's gone And you better get cleaned up Start thinkin' of a new thing 'Cause now I see the other said I done paid back, yes I did This ain't livin' on a train track On a train track
How will it go When you're away How will it come again Eventually How will it go When you're away Without you near The days are longer How will it feel If you don't stay Will things become the way They used to be, oh I feel the changes Comin' over me today And you can't hold back What you say I feel the changes Comin' on rearrange And I can't help What I feel How will it go When you're away Will you still feel the same Tomorrow I think I will not Go astray However time is left To tell And if time will tell I'm listenin' I'd walk a long, long mile for you And I don't really know What I'm to do, yeah Guess I'll just write This song for you I guess there's nothing else I'd rather do
Yes I do . . .Sam was lookin' grim His. . . . . real big I feel lucky 'cause I got wheels Looks like you're takin' a trip Head to Chicago It's close to home To get a little relief Don't really need to carry no gun here Don't need to packin' no piece Take a cab, take a bus And, you could walk if you like Don't really matter As long as you go You're gonna feel it alright All right, say And if you wanna stay alone Sure is plenty goin' on On every corner * You see 'em cuttin' the rug Just cuttin' the rug Cuttin' the rug Just cuttin' the rug I think I see . . . Cuttin' the rug Cuttin' the rug Kick and dance We're cuttin' the rug I can almost dance I should cut the rug Watch Jimmy dance See him cuttin' the rug Oh, ooh, can't dance Cuttin' the rug So if you're born startin' to face Or something's gettin' you down You get up and check it on out I think you'll see what I've found Say if you wanna stay alone Sure is plenty goin' on On every corner (*Repeat) Get up, girls, and dance Sure cut the rug They kick and dance They're cuttin' the rug Said do your thing Do the slam (Repeat) Yeah, slammin' and jammin' And cuttin' the rug again Cut it up, oh
Take a look at the guy Who's standin' in front of you Take a look at the guy Who once lived here with you Does he look like the same guy Same guy, same guy Who's lookin' straight back at you Take a look at the guy Once lost in fields Remember the time He traveled the sky It wasn't too long ago He ran away from home And he ran away from you Take a look Take a look at the guy Hangin' flesh on the bone Who used to play Silly games for you to be amused Does he look like the same face The same eyes, the same guy Who's starin' straight back at you Take a look at the guy Who's standin' in front of you Take a look at the guy Who once lived here with you Does he look like the same guy Same guy, same guy Who used to sing songs for you
Look outside I think the sun has come back Look outside I think it's come again It's wet and cold I wish the sun would come back It's wet and cold I wish it would come again It's twenty below the ground outside is frozen It's twenty below Said old man winter's here * Come on now inside and warm me up Come on now inside and warm me up Come on now inside and warm me up Today She woke up To a coldness from my window She woke up To a ray of sun come in (*Repeat 5 times)
