Bet you got it all planned, right
Bet you never worry, never even feel a fright
Bet you got it all planned, right
Never fit to worry, never even feel a fright

Single sleeps alone and I know you don't really mind
Five years by your side, so I know you really don't mind

But don't you nevah
Be down
I said don't evah
'Cause it's gonna keep him hanging around

Nevah
Be down
I said don't evah
Because it's gonna keep him hanging around

Bet you never think it's right
Bet you think you have to but it doesn't feel right
Bet you never think it feels right
Famous-sounding words make your head feel light

Petals getting picked with the love-yous and the love-you-nots
Five years going by, everyone is staying on their side

But don't you nevah
Be down
I said don't evah
'Cause it's gonna keep him hanging around

Nevah
Be down
I said don't evah
Because it's gonna keep him hanging around

But don't you nevah
Be down
I said don't evah
'Cause it's gonna keep him hanging around

Nevah
Be down
I said don't evah
Because it's gonna keep him hanging around

Five years going by, everyone is staying on their side

Five years going by, everyone is staying on their side

Bet you got it all planned, right
Bet you never worry, never even feel a fright
Bet you got it all planned, right
Never fit to worry, never even feel a fright

    Spoon looks ok. I think that this song could use ever and never instead of evah and neva, it sounds better that way, at least to me.
