I'd have time on my hands
Time to make some plans
Time to take a different point of view
Time to take a walk
And time to sit and talk
But you know I'm too busy bein' blue

I'd have time to fool around
time to paint the town
Time to spend each night
With someone new
Time to be alone
And time to stay out all night long
But you know I'm too busy bein' blue
