Lyrics
<b>Settle Down</b> by <i>The McClymonts</i>

Norma it aint no use
Your little boy is outta control
He's got a burning fuse
He's got a broken circuit
Started out way back when
You took him to his first rodeo
Those little eyes lit up
That little heart was sealed in stone

Mother just let him go
You can't stop the rain from falling
He's gonna ride that colt
And one of them's gonna end up broke
And honey what a price to pay
All that work for all that trouble
Before you accept your fate
Love the man or walk away

Oh yeah-yeah
Whatcha gonna be when you grow up
Where you gonna be when the sun goes down
Will you ever quit when you've had enough
Oh, oh, oh, oh
How in the world will you find your way
When the lovin' is good
But the lovin' won't pay
Where you gonna go when the lights die out
And the dust has settled down
Settle down

Papa couldn't understand
Why he had to leave the station
Taught him how to work the land
"Boy your dreams ain't worth the chasin"
And up until the day he died
The bible could not ease his sorrow
Cursed his passion and cursed his pride
These are the final words he cried.

Oh
Whatcha gonna be when you grow up
How you gonna be when the sun goes down
Will you ever quit when you've had enough
Oh, oh, oh, oh
How in the world will you find your way
When the lovin' is good
But the lovin' won't pay
Where you gonna go when the lights die out
And the dust has settled down
Settle down

Oh, oh
I said whatcha gonna be when you grow up
How you gonna be when the sun goes down
Will you ever quit when you've had enough
Oh, oh, oh, oh
How in the world will you find your way
When the lovin' is good
But the lovin' won't pay
Where you gonna go when the lights die out
And the dust has settled down
Settle down

Whatcha gonna be when you grow up
How you gonna be when the sun goes down
Will you ever quit when you've had enough
Oh, oh, oh, oh
How in the world will you find your way
When the lovin' is good
But the lovin' won't pay
Where you gonna go when the lights die out
And the dust has settled down
Settle down
Settle down
Settle down
Settle
Down
