Blues (Lyrics)

Listen (MP3)

I hate to see those autumn leaves fall down,
I hate to see those autumn leaves fall down,
It means that summer is gone in this old town.

There's always less time than you ever think there will be
There's always less time than you ever think there will be
I lay around all summer, and now time is chasing me

Oh, that Old Man Winter, he is tiptoeing in
My back is aching, my troubles have begun to begin

I don't feel steady, I feel like I could fall
And it's a long way down for a man who's six feet tall

I'm thinking about Hawaii, I got me a brochure
Smell the grass and take the sunshine cure
Long white beaches, we'd be happy for sure

If you don't love me, I wish you would say so
I've got lots of friends, other places I could go
