You can't spend all your life
sittin' on a cloud playing a twelve-string
You can't spend all your life
sittin' on a cloud playing a twelve-string

But you'll make this day again, this lucky, lucky day again
but it's not just a day again until you touched it

Get yourself a pedal-steel player
there's money in the cabaret business
Get yourself a pedal-steel player
there's money in the cabaret business
You can't spend all your life
sittin' on a cloud playing a twelve-string
You can't spend all your life
sittin' on a cloud playing a twelve-string

But you'll make this day again, this lucky, lucky day again
but it's not just a day again until you touched it

Don't put that song in your album
you don't need no sax in the band
Don't put that song in your album
you don't need no sax in the band
Get yourself a pedal-steel player
there's money in the cabaret business
You can't spend all your life
sittin' on a cloud playing a twelve-string

But you'll make this day again, this lucky, lucky day again
but it's not just a day again until you touched it

Wake up you gotta make a change
you gotta dress like one of the Levellers
Don't put that song in your album
you don't need no sax in the band
Get yourself a pedal-steel player
there's money in the cabaret business
You can't spend all your life
sittin' on a cloud playing a twelve-string
