MOSE ALLISON lyrics - Stop This World

MOSE ALLISON
"Stop This World"
(Mose Allison)

Stop this world, let me off
There's just too many pigs in the same trough
There's too many buzzards sitting on the fence
Stop this world, it's not making sense

Stop this show, hold the phone
Better days this lad has known
Better days so long ago
Hold the phone, won't you stop this show

Well, it seems my little playhouse has fallen down
I think my little ship has run aground
I feel like I'm in the wrong place
My state of mind is a disgrace

So won't you stop this game, deal me out
I know too well what it's all about
I know too well that it had to be
Stop this game you know it's ruining me

Well, I got too smart for my own good
I just don't do the things I know I should
There's bound to be some better way
I just got one thing more to say

And that is stop this game, deal me out
I know too well what it's all about
I know too well that it had to be
Stop this game you know it's wrecking me
