And she said, what’s the matter son

Don’t you play me no sad, sad song

Well come a little closer now

You know I can’t do you no wrong

 

Are you trying to find yourself or lose yourself

Maybe you don’t know which

But don’t try to be something else

‘Cause baby, you know it don’t pay to switch

 

See the lizard walks on the rocks

And the sun don’t burn his feet

It just goes to show that wherever you go 

Is the place to be

 

But it seems like these days

Everybody wants to be somewhere else

It seems like these days

Ain’t no body want to be themselves

 

And she said, here’s a dollar boy

Won’t you lie to me

I said I’m gonna walk away

So I can finally be free

 

But I guess even an honest man can lose his word 

If he’s hungry enough

Then she said be like the wind

Don’t you let nobody tell you when or which way to blow

‘Cause if you worry too much about how you’re gonna get there

Then you might never go

 

And it seems like these days

There ain’t no money in the truth

And it seems like these days

Ain’t no body know what to do

 

All I wanted was a taste of freedom

But all I got was old memories

Though she wanted to be received

I wouldn’t have changed a single thing

 

And she said, what’s the matter son

Don’t you play me no sad, sad song

Come a little closer now

You know I ain’t gonna do you no wrong”

 

Are you trying to find yourself or lose yourself

Maybe you don’t know which

But don’t try to be someone else

‘Cause honey, you know it don’t pay to switch

 

You see the River King knows one thing

That we all don’t understand

You gotta go with the flow

You can’t let the hand of the man dam you up

 

And it seems like these days

We all could use a drink from a lovin’ cup

And it seems like these days

We all could use a drink from a lovin’ cup
