MOSE ALLISON
"Gimcracks And Gewgaws"
(Mose Allison)

You went and gave me time to think
You went and gave me time to think
You went and gave me time to think
Now we're living on the brink

We got to play it by the book
We got to play it by the book
We got to play it by the book
You gonna eat you got to cook

I think I dropped it on the floor
I think I dropped it on the floor
I think I dropped it on the floor
Got to go and get some more

I gues I died and went to heaven
I thought I died and went to heaven
I thought I died and went to heaven
Got a wake-up call at seven

I think I'm gonna need a double
I think I'm gonna need a double
I think I'm gonna need a double
Go out and make some trouble

The best are s'posed to come in first
The best are s'posed to come in first
The best are s'posed to come in first
They're at the mercy of the worst
