Automatic Age 70 come rolling right up on me cause it's automatic. Lots I got a chance to do, lot too I didn't. Next big stop is where I get off. My O My how I do hate this being a whole bucket shy of what I could have done. I hate more this coming up a barrel short of being knowed about anywhere my shadow didn't fall. Too late for me to fix now because the getting off time is coming on real fast, while getting to be famous, and knowed about is off over yonder. Somewhere way over there in a place I know I ain't ever goanna see. Someplace fine all the young folks have a chance to get to, but most never will. Be best somebody try and tell them “better get to doing what needs doing” cause ever single one of them is living on automatic just like me and you. Just like me and you... Tweet
