“Different Drum”

Lyrics

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

You cry, moan and say it will all work out
But honey child, I’ve got my doubts
You can’t see the forest for the trees

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

And I ain’t sayin’ you ain’t pretty
All I’m sayin’s I’m not ready
For any person, place, or thing
To try and pull the reins in on me

So goodbye, I’m leavin’
I see no sense in your cryin’ and your grievin’
And we’ll both live a lot longer
If you live without me

[break]

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

And I ain’t sayin’ you ain’t pretty
All I’m sayin’s I’m not ready
For any person, place, or thing
To try and pull the reins in on me

So goodbye, I’m a-leavin’
I see no sense in your cryin’ and your grievin’
We’ll both live a lot longer
If you live without me
If you live without me
If you live without me
