Tavares – Bad Times lyrics
One step behind don't make you what you're worth
Blue collar pride, breathing that salty earth
Pay every price, can't keep that dollar bill
Ain't much desire when you done lost the will

Talkin' 'bout bad times
Here in these bad times

Too old to try, ain't young enough to split
Cop what you can, get yourself over it
That border line don't really bother me
It ain't what you are, it's what you got to be

Talkin' 'bout bad times
Here in these bad times

[Chorus:]
That six and one are better than nothing at all
But for the break that don't ever call
Talkin' 'bout bad times, them bad times
Can you dig it
Talkin' 'bout bad times, them bad times
Gonna get you old
Talkin' 'bout bad timin', bad timin'
Bad times, them bad times
Gonna get you old

Don't pay enough to spend and run away
Stand here too long before it's gets far too late
That ain't your pride, don't burn no candlelight
Ain't better rich, you got to get old to die

Talkin' 'bout bad times
Here in these bad times

(Repeat chorus)

Talkin' 'bout bad times
Here in these bad times

(Repeat chorus)

I'm talkin' to you, you're talkin' to me
In these sad, sad times

(Repeat chorus)
