Dave Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ASCAP




I got a girl, she likes to swing from a tree,
Love that woman, but she don't love me.
I've got a check book, but got no money,
I told her that, she didn't think it was funny.

I've got a car, but the damn thing won't start,
I could fix it, but I can't find the spare parts.
I've got a stereo with kick-ass speakers,
But the sound is getting weaker and weaker.
Everything I got is less than perfect, I should be angry, but it just ain't worth it.
One of these days, I'm gonna make it right, tie it up good and tight.
Loose ends, loose ends, loose ends,
One of these nights I'm gonna tie it up tight.

I've got a suit, but the sleeves are too long,
Perfect fit, if I had arms like King Kong.
I've got a cellar full of old suit cases,
Outdated tickets to romantic places.

I've got a jigsaw with one piece missing,
I've got a radio with no time to listen.
I've got a house with a leak in the ceiling,
I've got a heart but I've got no feeling.
Everything I got is less than perfect, I should be angry, but it just ain't worth it.
One of these days I'm gonna make it right, tie it up good and tight.

Loose ends, loose ends, loose ends,
One of these nights I'm gonna tie it up tight.

{Dave - Solo}

I'm gonna make that woman love me - get a good job earn some money -
Buy a car with an eight track stereo.
Buy a new suit, take a sea cruise, fix my house the way that I choose.
Some day I'm gonna get up and go, go, go! Go, go, mmmm, mmmm.

Loose ends, loose ends, loose ends, loose ends.
Tying up a loose end, tying up a loose end,
Tying up a loose end, tying up a loose end, ahhhh.

{Dave - Solo}
