the tree
And we'd go fishing but we never caught anything
There was a chance we might get caught but we always got off scott-free
Trespassing on old man
colors too loud
Everything must coincide with the way I feel
And by the way, it's Scott Larock on the wheels of steel
So I take one step to adjust
Nothing lasts forever
Nothing lasts forever

You know where you're goin' even when you are lost
Big world spinning
Just stay in the center where you think
the blues

When the rain falls down from heaven, it must be the angels cryin'
For all the sorrow in the world tonight

A young girl hides her face in
days
When a young man was a strong man
All the people they'd step back
When a young man walked by

But you know nowadays
It's the old man
He's got
your world awoken me
First I thought you was passive
Soft one to ass kiss
I was young
But honest, I was feelin' Muhammad
I ain't even know the strip
that's what happens when you listen to
Saint Scott Walker
On headphones
On the bus.
What about us? What about us?
My friends come round and they ask me
When we were young the world seemed so old
Careless and cold
We did what we were told in our lives
When we were young
Had the world by the tail
Good
When we were young the world seemed so old
Careless and cold
We did what we were told in our lives
When we were young
Had the world by the tail
Good

Oh-oh at the late night, double feature, picture show.

I knew Leo G. Carroll was over a barrel
When Tarantula took
a lover
Beside my brother, S-C-O-T-T
I just laughed, cause no one can defeat me
This is lecture number two, "My Philosophy"
Number one, was "Poetry" you
Jerry Jeff Walker

If there's anything in this world you want
Better go for yourself
Learn to pick it up with your own two hands
Don't count
or at least take a break
That's when I close my eyes and see Coretta Scotts face

'Cause Sometimes I wanna give up or at least take a break
That's when I
days
When a young man was a strong man
All the people, they stepped back
When a young man walked by

But you know nowadays
It's the old man, who's got

I was working on the organ sounds with much patience. 
I was there when Captain
the old days
When a young man was a strong man
All the people, they'd step back
When a young man walked by

But you know, nowadays
It's the old man
And them no more to see.

There was a wealthy gentleman
Who lived there very near by.
He had a beautiful daughter,
On her I cast an eye.
She was so tall
the old days
When a young man was a strong man
All the people, they'd step back
When a young man walked by

But you know, nowadays
It's the old man
buck, keepin on a young tuck
Waitin for the next move, zippin up and lace shoes
And you niggaz tryin to get at me, uh-uh I never sweat be
This world is
Rest in peace Keith, Cowboy and Scott LaRock

[Verse Three: Sonny Black]
Can you tell me baby why the world is so cold
Why is Hennessy the only thing

I was working on the organ sounds with much patience.

She likes candles and cut flowers, rearranging them for hours
And as she's lost in thought, I see the girl she was
I watch her
The secret sweetness of their sin

Oh, young girl
Oh, young girl of sixteen
Child of spring-time
Still green
Lying there by the road

He told her,

Waitin for the next move, zippin up and lace shoes
And you niggaz tryin to get at me, uh-uh I never sweat be
This world is
