composer: Willie Nelson
lyricist: Willie Nelson
Some people are saying that time will take care of people like me
That I'm livin' too fast and they say I can't last much longer
But little they see that their thoughts of me is my Saviour
And little they know that the beat oughta go a little faster
So pick up the tempo just a little and take it on home
The singer ain't singin' and the drummer's been draggin' too long
Time'll take care of itself so just leave time alone
And pick up the tempo just a little and take it on home

Well I'm wild and I'm mean I'm creatin' a scene I'm goin' crazy
I'm good and I'm bad and I'm happy and sad and I'm lazy
I'm quiet and I'm loud and I'm gatehrin' a crowd and I like gravy
About half off the wall but I learned it all in the Navy
So pick up the tempo...
Take it on home
