… Do-do-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, yeah, yeah
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, yeah, yeah

 

… Watching girls go passing by
It ain't the latest thing
I'm just standing in a doorway
I'm just trying to make some sense

 

… I love these girls who're passing by
The tales they tell of men
I'm not waiting on a lady
I'm just waiting, oh, on a friend

There the morning rain don't fall and the sun always shines
She'll be flying over my home in about three hours time

This old airport's got me down, it's no earthly good to me
And I'm stuck here on the ground as cold and drunk as I can be
You can't jump a jet plane like you can a freight train
So, I'd best be on my way in the early morning rain

You can't jump a jet plane like you can a freight train
So, I'd best be on my way in the early morning rain

Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while
Think I see my friends coming
Riding a many mile
Friends did you get some silver?
Did you get a little gold?
What did you bring me my dear friends
To keep me from the gallows pole?
What did you bring me to keep me from the gallows pole?

… Blame it all on my roots, I showed up in boots
And ruined your black tie affair
The last one to know, the last one to show
I was the last one you thought you'd see there

 

… And I saw the surprise and the fear in his eyes
When I took his glass of champagne
And I toasted you, said, "Honey, we may be through
But you'll never hear me complain"

 

… 'Cause I've got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away
And I'll be OK

All my life, I've been searching for something
Something never comes, never leads to nothing
Nothing satisfies but I'm getting close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope

All night long I dream of the day
When it comes around and it's taken away
Leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most
Feel it come to life when I see your ghost

I've been to Hollywood
I've been to Redwood
I crossed the ocean
For a heart of gold
I've been in my mind
It's such a fine line
That keeps me searching
For a heart of gold
And I'm getting old

… Happy with no teeth
Happy here in hibernation
Slurpin' on a peach
Starin' at the situation
Kitty at my foot
Meowin' out a conversation
Rockin' back and forth
That's my only destination

 

… Old man on the back porch
Old man on the back porch
Old man on the back porch
And that old man is me

And I could have done so many things, baby
If I could only stop my mind
From wondering what I left behind
And from worrying about this wasted time

 

The love has come and gone
The years keep rushing on
I remember what you told me
Before you went out on your own
Sometimes to keep it together
You got to leave it alone

 

So you can get on with your search, baby
And I can get on with mine
Maybe someday we will find
That it wasn't really wasted time

You've got to give it to me
You've got to give it to me
You've got to give it to me
You've got to give it to me

 

You're so slick now, know every trick now
You know I want it, I want it so bad
You know I need it, I can't believe it
So come on baby, Please relieve it

There's a club if you'd like to go
You could meet somebody who really loves you
So you go and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home and you cry
And you want to die

 

When you say it's gonna happen now
When exactly do you mean?
See I've already waited too long
And all my hope is gone

Lying in my bed, I hear the clock tick and think of you
Caught up in circles
Confusion is nothing new
Flashback, warm nights
Almost left behind
Suitcase of memories
Time after

Sometimes you picture me
I'm walking too far ahead
You're calling to me, I can't hear
What you've said
Then you say, "go slow"
And I fall behind
The second hand unwinds

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time

I, I've been watching you
I think I wanna know ya (Know ya)
Said I, I'm a little dangerous
Girl, I'd love to show ya (Show ya)

My jungle love, yeah (Oh-we-oh-we-oh)
I think I wanna know ya (Know ya)
Jungle love (Oh-we-oh-we-oh)
Girl, I'd love to show ya (Show ya)
