Take off your hat; kick off your shoes.
I know you ain’t goin’ anywhere.
Run ‘round the town, singin’ your blues.
I know you ain’t goin’ anywhere.
You’ve always been a good friend of mine,
But you’re always sayin’ farewell.
And the only time that you’re satisfied
Is with your feet in the wishing well.
Oh… Yeah… Wish!
Throw down your gun – you might shoot yourself –
Or is that what you’re tryin’ to do?
Put up a fight you believe to be right
And someday the sun will shine through.
You’ve always got something to hide;
Something you just can’t tell.
And the only time that you’re satisfied
Is with your feet in the wishin’ well.
Oh… Yeah…
But I know what you’re wishin’ for:
Love in a peaceful world. Yeah…
Love in a peaceful world. Oh, yeah…
Love in a peaceful world.
Mmmmmmmm…
Na na na na na na na-na…
Na na na na na na na…
You’ve always been a good friend of mine,
But you’re always sayin’ farewell.
And the only time that you’re satisfied
Is with your feet in the wishing… well!
Oh! Yes! But, uh… Ow!
I wish you well…
Oo-oo-ooh! The wishing well! Ow!
Everybody has a wish…
Everybody has a dream. Yeah, yeah!
I wish you well… Ow!
Well, you dream… your own time…

    It was one of my favourites on the juke box in a local pub i once frequented-and i wrote the words god help me find love in a peacefull world and stuck it on a prayer board in my local catherdral 11 yrs ago-within a week of that i found myself at the start of what has been a long struggle to find recovery from alcohol/drug addiction and mental health issues-today i am clean sober and content-
    i found love in a peacefull world-shaz
