[Scatting]
Here it is.
Here it is.
Make a turn around,
Make a you-turn now.
[Scatting]
Hey you!
If anybody's home, I'm trying to get through
With a story for you.
There's a monster out there and it really
Doesn't care what you say what you do
If you're young or you're grey.
Hey you!
You can take it from me.
I was talking that talk 'til I was 43.
I was walking in a web that was to thick
To shed, and it was only by degrees that I
Was brought to my knees.
Justification was my mode of operation,
Looking good number one on my list.
Trapped in a circle of a merry-go-round,
I couldn't get up getting down.
The things that I was doing was all I ever known,
I didn't know that I was driven by delusion to the
Bone.
You want to hear the greatest story ever told?
There ain't a greater feeling than the healing
Of your soul.
Baby, I'm not here to sell you but you need someone
To tell you like it is.
Like it is.
Like it is.
I don't wanna be a preacher
But you really need a teacher, here it is.
Here it is.
Here it is.
[Scatting]
Hey You!
Don't beat yourself up, be gentle with yourself
'cause there ain't nobody else, and it isn't
Your fault and I know it seems bleak,
And you're only in this you-turn 'til you meet defeat.
Hey You!
You can take it from me, there's more going down
Than you and I can ever see.
There's a tale being told and the water's all
Around, there's a brand new day. Get the heck out of
Your way.
I never let you tell me that I wanted to hear,
When you said it like it was, it never got to
My ears.
My behavior underneath was completely insane.
Kept playing those games with a saturated brain.
I never thought I had to go as far as I did,
I had to leave home and abandon a kid.
You want to hear the greatest story ever told?
There ain't a greater feeling than the healing
Of your soul.
Baby, I'm not here to sell you but you need someone
To tell you like it is.
Like it is.
Like it is.
I don't wanna be a preacher
But you really need a teacher, here it is.
Here it is.
Here it is.
Make a turn around, make a you-turn now.
[Scatting]
Baby, I'm not here to sell you but you need someone
To tell you like it is.
Make a you-turn, make about face, make a turn around,
Make a turn around, make a you-turn now.
I don't wanna be a preacher
But you really need a teacher, here it is.
Here it is.
Here it is.
Make a turn around, make a you-turn now.
[Scatting]
Hey You!
[Scatting]
Make a you-turn, make about face, make a turn around,
Make a turn around, make a you-turn now.
[Scatting]
Make a turn around, make a you-turn now.
[Scatting]
Here it is.
Here it is.
Hey You!
