Some people are saying that time 
Will take care of people like me 
That I'm living too fast 
And they say I can't last much longer. 

But little they see 
That their thoughts of me is my saviour 
And little they know 
I might live forever. 

So pick up the tempo just a little 
And take it on home 
The singer ain't singin' 
And the drummer's been draggin' too long. 

Time'll take care of itself 
So just leave time alone 
And pick up the tempo just a little 
And take it on home. 

I'm wild and I'm mean 
I'm creatin' a scene I'm goin' crazy 
I'm good and I'm bad 
And I'm happy and sad and I'm lazy. 

I'm quiet and I'm loud 
And I'm gatherin' a crowd and I like gravy 
About half off the wall 
But I learned it all in the Navy. 

So pick up the tempo just a little 
And take it on home 
The singer ain't singin' 
And the drummer's been draggin' too long. 

Time'll take care of itself 
So just leave time alone 
And pick up the tempo just a little 
And take it on home. 

Yeah, pick up the tempo just a little 
And take it on home.
