“Different Drum (live)”

Lyrics

Well, you and I travel to the beat of a different drum
Whoa, can’t you tell by the way I run
Every time you make eyes at me?

You cry, you moan, you say, “It’ll work out”
Oh, but honey child, I’ve got my doubts
Can’t see the forest for the trees

And don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I knock it
It’s just that I am not in the market
For a girl who wants to love only me

I’m not sayin’ that you’re not pretty
No, all’s I’m sayin’s I’m not ready
For any person, place, or thing
To try and pull the reins in on me

And I feel pretty sure you’ll find you a man
And he’ll take a lot more than I ever could or can
You’ll settle down with him
I know you’ll be happy

[break]

No, I’m not sayin’ that you’re not pretty
Oh, all’s I’m sayin’s I’m not ready
For any person, place, or thing
To try and pull the reins in on me

And I feel pretty sure you’ll find a man
He’ll take a lot more than I ever could or can
And you’ll settle down with him
And I know you’ll be happy

So goodbye, I’m leaving
I see no sense in your crying and your grieving
We’ll both live a lot longer
If you live without me
We just got to learn to live without each other, babe
That’s all it is
We’ve just gotta learn it
We can learn it
We can learn it
We just gotta learn it

Mike: Wow, thanks. Thanks a lot. That’s great. That’s terrific. Thank you very, very much. Thanks.
