John Stewart

Chorus:
Come gather the time, I have nothing to do. Come gather the time, I have nothing to do.

Who could be nicer than someone with nothing to do? I've spent all my life looking for someone like you.

(Chorus)

Who could be wiser than someone who knows not at all? That's why I like it. Your face is as blank as a wall.

(Chorus)

If someone should say I was born for a game or make me the President,
If someone should say I was born for a game, you would still hear me say

(Chorus)

Go buy a bonnet that's sold by the carnival man. No, he won't tell you colors come off in your hand.

(Chorus)
