All of my love and
Most of my fears
Been coming on strong
For most of my years
Add up and end up in a song

Cellophane tweeds and revenue streams
Are blocking my shots and killin' my dreams
That showed me how to be the cause

Ooh ahh, yella, ooh ahh, hey ah what now?

It's a lifetime of a strange man, that's right
It's a long time, for me, I see
She wants to belong and, I want to be free
Ex-communicated 'cause there ain't no guarantee

Ooh ahh, yella, ooh ahh, yeah

All of my friends and enemies
They were part of this dance
That put me right here we go
So glad I got this chance

Better known plans
And lesser known schemes
Were all about love and less about me
I'd have to say she wore the pants

That's oh!

It's the lifetime of a strange man, that's right
It's a long time for me, Uh-hu
She wants to belong and, I want to be free
Ex-communicated 'cause there ain't no guarantee

Woo! Yeah
Ahh
Go
Oh
I've been left
(Can't figure out what he says next)
(And then a bunch of scat)

It's a lifetime of a strange man, that's right
It's a long time, for me, lets see
She wants to belong and, I want to be free
Ex-communicated 'cause there ain't no guarantee

It's a lifetime of a strange man, that's me
It's a long time, for me, uh-uh
She wants to be rich and, I want to be free
Keep your plans elastic 'cause there ain't no, guarantee
