Any major dude with half a heart surely will tell you my friend Any minor world that breaks apart falls together again
This is the day Of the expanding man That shape is my shade There where I used to stand
They got a name for the winners in the world I want a name when I lose They call Alabama the Crimson Tide Call me Deacon Blues
I cried when I wrote this song Sue me if I play too long This brother is free I'll be what I want to be
Katy tried I was halfway crucified I was on the other side Of no tomorrow
Are you with me Doctor Wu? Are you really just a shadow Of the man that I once knew?
She thinks I'm crazy But I'm just growing old
The Cuervo Gold The fine Colombian Make tonight a wonderful thing
Peg It will come back to you Then the shutter falls You see it all in 3-D It's your favorite foreign movie
I have never met Napoleon But I plan to find the time
