lyrics

I've got a pint glass of stout
I'm hanging out on my front porch
It's the middle of the day
I'd like to say what's mine is yours

As the sirens blare
I'm tempted to care
about the people that I don't know
you can say what you will
I'll sit up on my hill
and watch the world present its show

There's a crack on the wall
think it might fall into the porch swing
There's a crack on the wall
think it might fall into the street

I counted fourteen bikes
and I'm tempted to like
all those people that I don't know
you can say what you want
I can say that I don't
mind the day moving so slow

Gotta get it together, keep it together, get it together now
gotta get it together, keep it together, get it together now

We can't all sound like Emmylou and Gram
we can't all be like Linda and Eagles singing at Disneyland

I've got a hot cup of tea
between you and me,
I prefer the pint glass
it was a pint glass of stout
and I figured out
that it would not last

sometimes I've had enough
but I'm tempted to love
all you people that I don't know
I say stupid things
again and again
but I'll try to do better tomorrow

Gotta get it together, keep it together, get it together now
gotta get it together, keep it together, get it together now
