People let me tell you about my day,
I couldn’t wait till it turned night.
Every where that I seemed to stray,
they had me dead right in their sights.

Started with the newsman top of the day,
tellin’ me that we goin’ broke.
Took out my wallet and looked at my hard earned pay,
and it laughed at me like I was some joke.

Now Vinnie called me with more bad news,
tellin’ me his guitar ain’t right.
All six strings come down with the blues,
and they ain’t gonna go to work that night.

I cry , I cry Lord have mercy on me now.
Who’s shakin’ my Voodoo Tree?
Who’s shakin’ my tree?

Now steady Neddy could’nt find the tone,
and he was startin’ to feel the heat,
but David got us goin’ right in the zone,
he’s yellin’ at me boy learn how to keep a beat.

Everything I own is broke,
I don’t have a clue.
Got a bad, bad feelin’ deep in my heart,
and stones in both of my shoes.

Now the Postman all he brings me is bills,
and he hangs his head and sighs.
I know that He’s feelin’ it too,
He shakes his head as he waves goodbye.

Well I cry, I cry Lord have mercy on me now.
Who’s shakin’ my Voodoo Tree?
Who’s shakin’ my Voodoo Tree?
Who’s shakin’ my Voodoo Tree?
Who’s shakin my tree?

Well I cry, I cry Lord have mercy on me.
Who’s shakin’, my Voodoo Tree?
Who’s shakin’ my tree?
Who’s shakin’ my Voodoo Tree?
Who’s shakin’ my tree?

 

When I was born they told me I’d be scorned.
No place for you to hide.
The winds blow hard in the month of March,
especially round the day of the Ides.

I learned in school there ain’t no golden rule,
it’s about everybody else instead.
Learned to keep my cool no matter how hard and cruel,
especially when your seein’ red.

Sometimes I got so turned around,
I should’ve just stayed in bed.
Close my eyes, take a deep breath,
and pull the covers over my head.

Now I get out of school it’s ten years or so,
ain’t exactly what I dreamed.
The boss is mad and the bills need paid,
odds are treatin’ me mean.

It’s marital strife, insurance on your life,
worried about my 401K.
I got a 529 it’s a pain in my side,
deal with it anyway.

Sometimes I get so turned around,

I should’ve just stayed in bed.
Close my eyes take a deep breath,
and pull the covers over my head.

Lookin’ back on what’s been said and done,
the only simple thing in life is me.
I’ve got regrets, but want no time back,
trouble just to let me be.

I do what I do when I got to do,
and pray for that peace of mind.
Lordy up above says it will come,
only just a matter of time.

Sometimes I get so turned around,
I should’ve just stayed in bed.
Close my eyes, take a deep breath,
and pull the covers over my head.

Yeah sometimes I get so turned around,
I shoud’ve just stayed in bed.
Close my eyes take a deep breath,
pull the covers over my head.

Now sometimes I get so turned around,
I should,ve just stayed in bed.

Well just stop, stop right there,
and never you mind how I stare.
I ain’t no saint, forget about my past,
the only sure thing is this ain’t gonna last.

You act so surprised with your wide open eyes,
Honey this ain’t nothin’ new to you.
It just ain’t right you say I don’t treat you nice,
Honey better learn to lose those blues.

It’s funny you act that way,
makin’ out like it’s your very first day.
You know exactly what you wanna do,
and your the best at breakin’ me in 2.

Now just stop, stop right there,
and never did I say I didn’t care.
You ain’t no saint, I’ll forget about your past,
the only sure thing is this ain’t gonna last.

You act so surprised with your wide open eyes,
Honey this ain’t nothin’ new to you.
It just ain’t right you say I don’t treat you nice,
Honey better learn to lose those blues.

It’s funny that you act that way,
you make out like it’s your very first day,
you know exactly what you wanna do,
and your the best at breakin’ me in 2.

Yeah your the best at breakin’ me in 2.
The best at breakin’ me in 2, Honey.
The best at breakin’ me in 2.

 

Silly little giddy Miss Liddy don’t go for that.
When we make love she don’t even take off my hat.
She tells me it’s a waste of time, and boy I can’t wait till you get me fine,
and I told giddy Miss Liddy I can go for that.

Sweet short sassy Marie said boy you lied to me.
I saw you on the corner with my third cousin Irene.
I said Baby is that a fact? When I took all your money to the bettin’ track,
she said either way I can’t go for that.

What am I gonna do?
I’m so in love with two.
Lordy it’s a mystery.
I’m thinkin’ about makin’ it three.

What am I gonna do?
I’m so in love with two.
Lordy it’s a mystery,
I’m thinkin’ about makin’ it three.

Marie’s third cousin Irene likes to make a scene.
Why would you be kissin’ her when you can be makin’ love to me?
Lordy I must be insane,
who ever thought that I could play this game.

Now I know that I can’t go for that,
now I know that I can’t go for that,
and now I know that I can’t go for that.

Please, Please, Please,
don’t do it like that.
Cause when you walk that way,
you knock me flat.

Now why? tell me why?
You wear them high heels too.
Get that nasty little look in your eye,
it’s only trouble now for me, and for you.

You got me, breakin’ all the rules.
Now, now, now you know,
your gonna get your way.
No matter what you do girl, I’m here to stay.

Now why? tell me why?
You make me weep and make me moan.
All I’m askin’ from you baby girl
throw me one tiny, measley, little doggone bone.

You got me breakin’ all the rules.
I don’t wanna be your fool.
Please, Please, Please,
don’t do it like that.
Cause when you walk that way,
knocks me on my back.

Now why? tell me why?
You wear them high heels too.
Get that nasty little look in your eye.
it’s only trouble now for me and for you.

You got me, breakin’ all the rules.
You know I’m gonna be your fool.

 

Got an Angel sittin’ over my shoulder,
don’t always agree,
what is best and what is worse,
just let it be, she says wait and see.

Little bit angry when I’m short on time,
a little bit nervous when I cross those lines,
in the end I know she reads my mind,

I know that, she’s watchin’ over me, watchin’ over me.

Late at night from a darkened room
I hear her whisper a sweet soft tune,
good time is never too soon,

and I know that, watchin over me.

Got an Angel with deep dark eyes,
she says their the color of an October sky.
On a sleepless night she can ease my mind,

I know that she watches over me, watches over me, watches over me.

You tell yourself it’s a brand new day,
this time you can make it just a little bit longer,
but you soon get this feeling creeping up beside you,
and before you know it, your torn up inside.

Each day you get a little bit closer, closer to the truth.
Each day you try a little bit harder, try to make it through.
Then your back on your way, to feeling alright,
but before you know it another knock inside.

You try and resist it for a little while,
the next thing your knowing your back again.
Sometimes it’s an uphill climb just to get upright,
some days your running into a headwind it’s a constant fight.

You know you want to be there, you wanna be there too,
and your gonna get there, your gonna get there soon,
but your time is wasted, wasted through your life each day,
and you pray that you get there before your dying day.

Day after day, rinse and repeat,
year after year, and now your into deep,
but there’s a light up ahead, and it’s shining on strong,
calling you to join in what took you so long?

Sometimes it’s an uphill climb just to get upright,
some days your running into a headwind it’s a constant fight.
Yeah you know you wanna be there, you wanna be there too,
your gonna get there, your gonna get there soon,

but your time is wasted,
wasted through your life each day,
and you pray that you get there before your dying day.

 

It’s hard growin’ all the way
up no matter what you say.
I’ve tried, and tried, and tried,
and it just didn’t take.

I’m always on the wrong side of town,
I end up in the lost and found,
it’s hard growin’ all the way up
no matter what you say.

It’s so easy gettin’ lost in your dreams
I do it everyday.
I drift in and out,
and waste my time away.

It keeps me from goin’ mad,
it evens out the good from the bad,
it’s so easy gettin’ lost in your dreams
I do it everyday.

Never catch me casting stones,
it’s a world of pain,
a life’s lesson learned
that’ll lead you to shame.

If you kick ’em when their down I’ll pass,
I’ve built my own house of glass,
you’ll never catch me casting stones,
no I think I’ll pass.
If you kick’em when their down I’ll pass,
I’ve built my own house of glass,
you’ll never catch me casting stones,
no I think I’ll pass.

She tells me do this remember where your at,
this girl keeps me runnin’.
She’s got a sneaky little reason why,
she’s always tellin’ me temptations coming,
better run, and hold on to your hat,

you don’t think twice,
you’ll turn to stone if you look back.
Better watch your step, hold on to your hat,
cross your heart, don’t you look back.

She’s got the six sense nine lives of a cat,
and when you kiss her she purrs like a kitten,
but if you ever think of crossing her path,
your gonna wind up black and blue, and bitten,

you better run and hold on to your hat,
you don’t think twice, you’ll turn to stone if you look back.
Better watch your step, hold on to your hat,
cross your heart, don’t you look back.

Keep your eye on the prize,
remember where your at,
fall down on your knees,
don’t you look back.

It’s a well known fact that truth is stranger than fiction,
and if you hear me better stand up and listen.
You gettin’ a little to close to the fire,
your only true friend’s gonna be suspicion,

you better run, and hold on to your hat,
you don’t think twice, you turn to stone if you look back.
Better watch your step, hold on to your hat,
cross your heart, don’t you look back.

Keep your eye on the prize,
remember where your at,
fall down on your knees,
don’t you look back.

 

Now all this lyin’ and cheatin’
it just don’t do you no good.
I ain’t forgettin’ you ain’t regrettin’,
you say you caused nobody no harm.

Now I ain’t good enough to say,
the good book it teaches that way,
I wasn’t born yesterday,
I’ve been around I know my way.

Now tell me Honey where’s all the money,
you said would take us from bad to good,
it goes in one hand, right out the other,
I know you’d love to take it all if you could.

I’m thinkin’ maybe I should go,
somewhere south of Mexico,
and take on another name,
I’d only have myself now to blame.

Well my perception is all deception,
we know that you been doin’ us wrong,
I feel so helpless, cause you could care less,
it’s the same old dance and song.

I dream that one day
if I could have it my way
you’d change and it
wouldn’t take that long.

It’s long forgotten that you become all rotten,
and were the ones you should be thinkin’ of.
So tell me Honey, where’s all the money,
you said would take us from bad to good.
