Long ago, with things to be
I got a garden hose and a color TV 
I got time on my hands 
I got time on my hands  Nobody cares what I do

Long ago, things to do
I got a burnt orange peel and a potato stew
I got work to get done
I got work to get done
 Nobody knows where to run

You got a carton of milk and some sound advice
I've got trees that are fake but they smell so nice
Don't give me the flu
 Nobody knows I'm with you

Back and forth, I dodge a fly
Like a feather in the sky
 Write me out a check 
Give me all your cash
 Nobody knows, so let's just go home
