Graham Parker – Too Much Time To Think lyrics

Intro: Bm D Bm A E

Bm D Bm D E
I wanna walk out the door, I want to take the next bend
Bm D Bm A E
This makes the nuclear war seem like a personal friend
Bm D Bm D E
The whites won't let you live, the blacks won't let you forget
Bm D Bm A E
The Spaniards at the checkout counter just want to make you sweat

Bm D E Bm D E
And the news comes second hand on the radio am band
And I'm caught in a traffic jam ooooh
Bm D (A) E
I got too much time to think, too much time to think
I got too much time to think, too much time to think
Too much time to think, too much time to think

Instrumental break

There ain't nothing to read, as is read in words
I can't watch the tv, it all looks absurd
Somebody's standing right here, but nobody's ringing my bell
The best team just lost, I'm not taking it well

Repeat chorus

Instrumental break (think, think, think (Bm)) then solo.

Repeat chorus then repeat last line and fade
