Verse:
Color me once color me twice
Everything gonna turn out nice
Everlasting arms
You gotta keep me from these false alarms
Alarm, alarm I see you sad
Maybe I see you I'm glad
Maybe maybe the fire of her desire
Patience patience said the man
Patience patience I can't understand
Patience like a man and a wife
I got patience on my neck like a cold cold knife
I say Jack be nimble Jack fall dead
Jack bend over and give Jilly head
Oh you gotta help my body heal my soul

Verse 2:
Dead men working a sinner a saint
Mixing up a pail of paint
Painted the house, black as night
When the sun came up the house was white
Gotta go on
Gotta go on
We gotta go on
You gotta go on
You gotta go on
Go on
Go on
Try and live life like I couldn't
