On The Way

ON THE WAY
(Corwood 0755)

Wrap It Up
Wrap it up in ragweed
Take it to the doctor
Great man above the clouds
Oooo
Wrap it up in ragweed
Oh no she’s come again
Take me to another friend
Make this the end of it
I just wanna die
Ohh I’m livin’ again
Ahh isn’t this the very end
But I’m living again
Yes it’s the very end
It comes every century
Wrap it up in ragweed
Ba ba bada ba da da da

Bring It Back To Seventy-Five
Well it doesn’t matter ’cause
This is going all the way out
Oh ho
If you think there’s a future anywhere
All the way out
Whoo whoops I spilled the beans
All the way out
Listen bub it’s on the wall
Whoah ha don’t you fall
All the way out
Just keep looking
Just follow with your hands and eyes
All the way out

Message to the Clerk
First I came to see the doctor told him I was unemployed
Asked me what I did for money told him I was overjoyed
To reach into the basket take a bunch of dimes
Drop a note of paper riddled with my rhymes
Yeaaa take a message to the clerk tell him not to work
Ahhh then I came to see the priest said I knew God was alive
Ahh He looked at me quite solemn said son don’t give me that jive
I reached into my pocket pulled a .45
Said priest I got your number and this here ain’t no jive
Ahh take a message to the clerk tell him not to work
Then I came to see the man at the center of the town
Said hey there Mister Leader you’re looking at a clown
I don’t engage in nothing except hangin’ around
I’m livin’ high I’m livin’ low I just scream the sound
Ahh take a message to the clerk ohh tell him not to work
Ahh then I came to see myself
I got a nervous quirk
Behind a gun I lurk
He looks to me berserk
He pushes at his time
Aww he’s running down a line
Face all dripping down
Carrying a sign
Ahh take a message to the clerk tell him not to work
Ahh and now you’re independent
Brush your teeth three times a day
Remember how I told ya
Remember how I say
Ahha that you’ve seen a hundred persons and you called me down today
Just to hear how lovely it sounds to hear me say
Ahh take a message to the clerk
Ohhh tell him not to work
Ohh ahh ohh

Give It the Name
Well my hands are tired
Oh my hands are tired
And I as I need to see
Well I can’t find
Sitting here so long tryna ease my troubled mind
You want something that I can’t find
Find me on the corner now
Please somebody
Don’t stand by me
Find me on the corner
Said comin’ after you now
Don’t worry, worry man
I believe I believe
So come on down
I’ve seen a lot of days
I’m bein’ pushed along everywhere I go
So long that I really don’t know
I really don’t know
I just don’t know
And I just don’t know
When it ever really’s gonna end
Hey hey hey hey
And I just don’t know
When’s it ever really gonna end
Want it to end
Want it to end
Want it to end yeah
And I just don’t know
When’s it ever really gonna end
Don’t you know I want it to end
And I can’t stand to be pushin’ on any further
Ohhh, can’t you hear my call
Can’t you hear my
Can’t you hear my
Can’t you hear my call

Kimonos and Sears rubies
Why did she do it to me oh Sadie

I’ll Sit Alone and Think a Lot About You
Sometimes I sit and think of all
Wonder if goodbye was worth it
I sit alone and all I do is think of you
You
Sometimes it gets so very boring without you
I like to think of all our memories
Ohh I forgot a lot about you
Mm there was a time I sit alone
All I do is think of you
All you
You
Mmm sit alone and I think a lot
Sometimes when I’m lookin’ out my front window
I see the people there
They all breathe the air
The same as you and I do
But yet when I have said goodbyes
There’s only one thing I can do
Is think of you
Sometimes I sit and think alone
I have daydreams and memories
Right here with me at home
I sit alone and think a lot about you
You
Long nights last winter you kept me company
I know the coming summer will be long for me
I’ll sit alone and think a lot about you
You you you were with me
I’ll sit alone and think a lot about you
I think I’ll go down to the ocean
I’ll speak there with the gods below
I’ll talk of you
I’ll sit alone and ask the waves
Just where I might go to find you

The Only Way You Can Go
Gallivantin’ round the universe
Ahh somebody slipped me a gold purse
The lecture’s on next Friday
Meet you there with a ohh a bridegroom
Umm fortunately you don’t have to ahh inform nobody
We don’t need any audience mmm
You see me now
At least 15 times as I can count em
Don’t you think that’s some kind of seniority
Now the future not very great but
Yeah ahh
It’s only way you can go

I’m Ready
If you want to know why you’re a woman
It’s ’cause you don’t wan’ be a man
Yeah just wanna have one
You know I have fantasies about you
Layin’ down sayin’
Just come on
You can’t be that unkind
Ahh playing tricks on my mind
I’ll just steal away
Roll a brain by the bleachers
Watch a door slam in my face
Ahh I think a brick is cracking
Ahh I think a window’s broken
I see your face in every feature
Ahh your hand in every glove
‘Cause don’t wanna be a man just want to have one
You know I’m captured in your theater
And I still don’t know ohh what goes on below
Ahh but if you got to leave well then
I’ll say goodbye
You wan’ know why I’m a man
Ohh ’cause I don’t want to be a woman
I just wanna have one
