Animals 04:39
‘been tryin’ to be a good man ‘been tryin’ to be the best form of higher primate that I can They say we’re animals Sometimes I’m not so sure Would an animal tend to take more than his share And turn that clear blue sky into a smoky blur? Oh, animals take what they need, when they need it, and animals do what they have to, when they have to We’re not animals... Well, I’ve been watchin’ politicians I’ve been listenin’ to the Pope So many people out there dyin’ of complacency, an’ Hopin’ all you need is hope And while I know we are among those many moving creatures That hath life Sometimes I think we’d show a little more compassion To our brothers, our sisters, and our wife Oh, animals do what they want to, when they want to, and animals say what’s on their mind, if they say anything at all We’re not animals... Yesterday we was discussin’ This silly little thing that we have You reminded me ‘we’re animals,’ and said I ought to feel glad But sometimes I think that if I truly was a child of the wild I would not wait around I’d kick down your door, grab you by the hair, and Lay you right there on the warm bare ground, 'cause Animals do what they want to, when they want to, and Animals do what they feel like, if they feel like, when they feel like, and Animals go where they wanna go, any time they feel like goin’ and Animals say what’s on their mind, if they say anything at all...

It’s gettin’ stormy inside I’m starin’ the hurricane square in the eye Under a doorway I’m heavin’ a sigh Hopin’ that she’ll blow over in time It’s about an hour before sunrise The sky’s got that smoky red thing goin’ on I just got home Looks like I might be headin’ right back out again It’s gettin’ stormy inside I’m starin’ the hurricane square in the eye Under a doorway I’m heavin’ a sigh Hopin’ that she’ll blow over in time I guess I’m gonna try to cook breakfast ‘Cuz you know I know just how she likes her eggs scrambled I’m gonna have to go into town for some eggs or some somethin' But right now I’m not sure if I can get away It’s gettin’ stormy inside And I’m starin’ the hurricane square in the eye Under a doorway, heavin' a sigh Hopin’ that she’ll blow over in time I said it’s gettin’ stormy inside And I’m starin’ the hurricane right square in the eye I’m under a doorway, heavin’ a sigh Hopin’ that she’ll blow over in time She’ll blow over She’ll blow over She’ll blow over in time She’ll blow over She’ll blow over She’ll blow over in time

Take me for granted, and I will you My feet are planted right next to you Take me to the ocean, take me up to the trees Woman I’m yours to do with as you please The breeze is blowin’ through the window by your bed Runnin’ my fingers through the hair on your head I’m pretty sure you’re sleeping, though reacting to my touch And I’m thinkin’ how I never loved anybody this much So take me for granted, and I will you My feet are planted right here next to you Take me to the mountains, take me out to the seas Woman I’m yours to do with as you please I'm gonna fix you breakfast, and I’ll bring it to your room Maybe I'll sit down and I'll play a little tune for ‘ya 'Cuz I want to tell ya that I'm as happy as can be... And I'll wrap that promise in a little melody Take me for granted, and I will you My feet are planted right here next to you Take me to the mountains, take me up to the trees Woman I’m yours to do with as you please Yeah, take me for granted, and I will you My feet are planted right next to you Take me to the ocean, take me over the seas Woman I’m yours to do with as you please As you please As you please As you please

And is there anything I can do? Could I get you ice cream? Can I take you home? Could I cook you breakfast too?

Why am I livin' a lie with you? Why do I say the things I do? And why am I leadin' you on? Why can't I just tell you the truth? You see it's been a long time since I've been home How unaccustomed I have grown And 'til I realize that I'm gone Well I kinda wanna be alone I don't wanna love anybody Ë right now I don't wanna love anybody right now I wanna put it nicely but I don't know how I don't wanna love anybody right now There's somethin' missin' I feel it too And I know that I could find it in you But I don't have the time, the energy, the money to do it right Something else is gonna have to get me through, because I don't wanna love anybody right now I don't wanna love anybody right now I wish I knew a better way to put it but I don’t know how I don't wanna love anybody right now Not right now Not right now No, not right now Not right now

Cut Flowers 03:37
Rough weather don’t trouble me Cut flowers kinda do It ain’t because I’ve got an allergy And they don’t make me blue But cut flowers coulda been somebody They coulda gone somewhere Instead we pick ‘em one by one by one And stick ‘em in our hair Don’t get me wrong, you know I like that look Naturally..... I’ve got some flowers pressin’ in my book Crumblin’ slowly I had some cut flowers on my wedding day I’ll have ‘em by my deathbed, too Shrivelling eventually Just like me and you I’ve seen some.... Cut flowers in the waiting room. Cut flowers in the month of June Cut flowers in a Chinese vase. I’ll bet they had some... Cut flowers in the Wizard of Oz. Look at the... Cut flowers bloomin’ in the shade. Cut flowers in the Rose parade.... Cut flowers they tickle my nose Cut flowers And a rose is a rose is a rose Cut flowers Cut flowers Cut flowers Cut flowers Cut.

Road of Love 03:22
Bumpy, bumpy is that road of love Rockin’ and rollin’ you until you’ve had enough Better get directions ‘cuz it might get rough Out along that road of love I think you know somebody’s lookin’ your way ‘Cuz a box of flowers got delivered yesterday You think you can handle it--you think you’re pretty tough But I’d say you’re on the road of love So, you go twistin’ down that unpredictable road Caring and commitment make a pretty heavy load, I know... Let’s hope it doesn’t come to pushin’ and to shove Just because you’re on the road of love..and I said: Bumpy, bumpy is that road of love Rockin’ and rollin’ you ‘til you’ve had enough You’d better get directions brother, things get rough Out along that road of love Just when you think you’ve put some miles behind you You’d better guess again ‘Cuz when her heart slips through your fingers You’re gonna have to start all over again Well, I must admit, I think you’re doin’ pretty well I’ve seen other people get this far and look like hell I hope I didn’t scare ‘ya ‘bout the pain and all that stuff It’s just the ruts along the road of love Oh, bumpy, bumpy is that road of love Rockin’ and rollin’ you ‘til you’ve had enough Better get directions ‘cuz it might get rough Out along the road of love Out along the road of love Out along the road of love Out along the road of love Out along the road of love Out along the road of love

Windy 04:23
It's windy outside It's cold, But I still made the ride To see your face again It's blowin' real hard I been watchin' the leaves fall in the yard Since I can't remember when It's gustin' up a storm Pushin' me in somewhere where it's warm But you're not home again Wind chillin' my bones But I don't really feel like goin' home 'Think I'll wait another five or ten The wind has got me shakin' And this old house has got me thinkin' 'bout the love we were makin' Thinkin' 'bout the times we spent It's really blowin' hard now But I don't really know just what to say and how Babe, I want you back again It's windy outside It's cold, But I still made the ride To see your face again It's blowin' real hard I been watchin' the leaves fall in the yard Since I can't remember when Since I can't remember when Since I can't remember when Since I can't remember when

But never enough time Yes, it’s a long day in L.A. I’ve got to find another line All those chances that I’ve taken, the Earth is quakin’ Could you fix me up a bean sprout and felafel sandwich... And could you serve me up one of those south-of-the-border Cervezas... And could you squeeze in just a little bit of lime? ‘Cuz it’s a long day in L.A. It’s a long day in L.A. It’s a long day in L.A.

'Cuz if we make a little music together Well, I'll probly end up buyin' a ring We've got a funny thing goin' We love each other when we can Ain't that just like a woman and a man? Ain't that just like a woman and a man? Ain't that just like a woman and a man?

Funny Bone 03:35
Well, now when I woke up this mornin' And I saw you wasn't there Well, I went lookin' for your suitcase And it wasn't anywhere And then I found the note you left me On the 'fridgerator door It said "there's coffee in the cupboard And the keys are in the door..." Well, you could always get me laughin' You could always get me goin' But this time I think you broke my funny bone... So I went in to the bathroom For a shower and a shave And I found someone had took My bar of soap and my best blade Then I went into the bedroom To try to find myself a shirt Pretty soon I realized I wasn't goin' to work My baby sho' is funny But I'm laughin' all alone This time I think she went and broke my funny bone I love that lady 'cuz she keeps me in a line That crazy woman keeps me laughin' all the time Baby, I can tell you know I don't mind stayin' home But why'd you have to break my funny bone? So, I was sittin' home and scratchin' In my day-old underwear I couldn't find no chores to do I couldn't even find a chair And so I drank my cup of coffee I had six or seven more While I was waitin' for your call so you could Laugh at me some more Then I looked around and sure enough I could not find a phone Honey, why'd you have to break my funny bone?

Get Along 06:09
Well, I've spent my life Seeking out friends Climbing the walls of miscommunication Jumping the fence I've spent some years Working through uncomfortable times Learning about the things that break a person Drawing crooked lines Among all people I know there is a way to get along When I find out what it is I'm gonna Have to sit and write another song In all my time I've met only one you Of all the folks I've stayed with and played with And everything that I've been through Well, I might have settled down, now But I'm still learning every day Some folks don't have the knack to get along with others But you can't let that get in your way Among all people I know there is a way to get along When I find out what it is I'm gonna Have to sit and write another song I've got his dream where all the people are standing' in a circle And they're all workin' together, workin' a miracle And then I hear 'em singin, 'least I think that's what they're doin' But I still can't seem to quite make out the tune That's all I've got for now But I'd be glad to sing you more If you should happen down my little dirt road And you should walk through my open door We'll sit and make some music That I have traveled far to hear Crawl thru all the mud together And fly right outa here ‘Cuz among all people I am sure there is a way to get along And when I find out what it is I'm gonna Have to sit and write another song Yes among all people I am sure there is a way that we can get along And when I find out what it is I'm gonna Have to sit and write another song One more song
