Even the rats know the troubles gonna come
To the edge of the city see the little guys run
I hear spring is nice in Canada
Maybe the men up on capitol hill
Meed a little less Jack and a little more Jill
You can have my stereo
Even though the race may never be won
I can lay like a dandy get ready in the sun
Take a love song and beautify
(whoah)
I hear the words but the meaning gets lost
It's a game, that depends on who the ball gets tossed
It's the same ball anyway
You're tuggin' me know cut me loose or take me on
You can play, you can pay the piper all night long
That's some good home cookin'
Even though the race may never be won
I can lay like a dandy get ready in the sun
take a love song and beautify
(whoah)
**alternate line in second verse:
if you can hear me now
then you're halfway there
just a jump from your window
fly naked through the air
Take a long hard look
