I’ve been thinking ‘bout, All these things I’ve never done. I’ve been learning to shut my mouth, So I can have a little fun. I don’t want to go, Oh don’t make me go I don’t want to go, Oh don’t make me go I don’t read anymore, No not even CNN. Not since I left school, But I still like to pretend. I don’t want to go, Oh don’t make me go I don’t want to go, Oh don’t make me go It’s been getting cold, On this beach where I grew up. I don’t think I’ll ever get old. Or at least not old enough, oh! I don’t want to go, Oh don’t make me go I don’t want to go, Oh don’t make me go Sure I remember where I grew up, I was lying on the beach, I was feeling the sun. Oh don’t you know I’m who I’m ‘sposed to be, I’m a man, I’m a man, god help me-e-e-e I don’t understand, How I turned out the way I did I’ve been trying to be a man, But we’ve all been through some shit I don’t want to go, Oh don’t make me go (repeat)

I know what, you’re doing You’re wrecking me, I see And I recognize, what you’re saying But I disagree, you see Cause it’s all hopeless, I hope you know this I knew ya thinking, I was never there, And I see ya calling, So I know you’re drinking, But I don’t answer Cause I don’t care, and you don’t care Kids, we don’t care Kids, we don’t care I want you, to be My ballerina, with me And I know it’s tough, But it’s true We could do, what we always wanted to Cause it’s not hopeless, I hope ya know this, I’m always trying to be there, And I know you’re special, Cause I think about you, And you think about me But I don’t care, and you don’t care Kids, we don’t care Kids, we don’t care Woahh Kids, we don’t care (repeat)

Get your face on. Stop complaining No I can't handle you, heart-breaker On your stomach, in the kitchen Your wedding dress got all uneven Oh, how it goes Oh, yeah I know she knows I know Get a move on, what I'm sayin' No I can't handle you, heart-breaker In the backroom where we're hidden I thought I saw your brother listen Get your face on. Stop complaining No I can't handle you, heart-breaker In the saddle, in the kitchen I thought I heard your mother walk in

King Charlemagne did once decree, He prayed for you, he prayed for me He grew six feet overnight. My good god, what a fright She don’t even talk about it, Like the way she did before. She spent all of her daddy’s money, So now she’s got to be poor. Who do you think you are? You got everything you could ever want It never really seemed that hard, Back when you thought you had everyone. Back when you ruled the world. She tries her best to stay alive. She’s just like us from nine to five. I see no future, pay no rent. I curse my king, my president She don’t even talk about it, Like the way she did before. She spent all of her daddy’s money, So now she’s got to be poor. Who do you think you are? You got everything you could ever want It never really seemed that hard, Back when you thought you had everyone. Back when you ruled the world All the kids, They get rich quick (repeat) She don’t even talk about it, Like the way she did before. She spent all of her daddy’s money, So now she’s got to be poor. Who do you think you are? You got everything you could ever want It never really seemed that hard, Back when you thought you had everyone. Back when you ruled the world

I like that OG Food, from the FDA Like the farmer’s market, went on Saturday I met a pretty girl, she’s drinking almond milk She is a real one, oh I hope to god you stand by me You stand by me I like her turtlenecks, and her snakeskin boots Just like her president, she would just lie to you, It’s an alternative, so it’s my turn again I turn the lights down low, and I hope to god you stand by me Stand by me We met at Griffith park, heard on NPR Like that romcom shit, in my Toyota car Remember yesterday, forgot the words to say So I write them down, oh I hope to god you stand by me Stand by me I’m hitting 85, but 62’s the low I fill my gas tank up, but then my A/C broke I don’t know why I drive, I do this every time Is your mother home? Oh I hope to god you stand by me Stand by, won’t you stand by me Stand by Ack!

Am I wrong? Am I right? You love a woman, to save your life You share a conscience. You share some bread. You share a soul. You share a bed. Everytime I close my eyes, like the first time Everything will be just fine Everytime I close my eyes, I realize Everything turned out fine I thought of you. I thought of me. Souls colliding, helplessly. I tried to fight it. I tried to see. But you don’t notice, callously. Everytime I close my eyes, like the first time Everything will be just fine Everytime I close my eyes, I realize Everything turned out fine Everytime I close my eyes, like the first time Everything will be just fine Everytime I close my eyes, like the first time Everything will be just fine

On my mind, out of luck Fell behind, fell in love Rome wasn’t built in a day they say, They say Rome wasn’t built in a day Rome wasn’t built in a day they say They say Rome wasn’t built in a day On my back, finding home What I lack, self control Rome wasn’t built in a day they say, They say Rome wasn’t built in a day Rome wasn’t built in a day they say They say Rome wasn’t built in a day On my knees, just for us Begging please, give me trust Rome wasn’t built in a day they say, They say Rome wasn’t built in a day Rome wasn’t built in a day they say They say Rome wasn’t built in a day (repeat)

I’m working nine to five, I worked most of the weekend And I need to get paid, I can feel my fingers bleeding I think I done this before, But not quite like this, Why don’t we do it in the street It was such a hit or miss I don’t know you anymore, No more, no more You better leave this man behind I need to go home, I’m feeling awfully sick I think I had too much to drink, but only cause you did Don’t act like you don’t know, just try and stay the same You can meet me after work, we can share each other’s pain I don’t know you anymore, No more, no more You better leave this man behind Nine to five (repeat x4) You better leave, Leave, leave Nine to five You better let this man be Baby You better leave this man behind

I tried so hard to save some face. I’ll do it again, like I’ve done it before. I wonder what boy, would take my place. Is he in your grade? Did you meet in high school? But I don’t get hung up anymore, I just get fucked up with my friends. I’m staring at the bathroom floor, Tell me that this shit’s gonna end, And it ends if we go upstairs, At the end of the night, And do the only thing , I think I’ve ever done right Stop talking about politics, And your twitter feed, Just reach out to a man from a woman, In a time of need, Let’s do it in the middle of the street.
