Default If I Ever Got Caught Up


I gotta do my laundry
And I need a haircut
I need an oil change
And transmission fluid
My fingernails are long
I need a manicure
I need to exercise
Get on the treadmill

If I Ever Got Caught Up
I wouldn't know what to do
Guess I'd jump for joy
Scream and shout too
I'd run through the streets
Spreading peace and love
Spreading happiness
If I Ever Got Caught Up

I gotta book a flight
Gonna make that trip
Nebraska Star Party
Gotta pay my rent
I need some food
Cupboard's bare
I'm strung out
I'm everywhere

If I Ever Got Caught Up
I wouldn't know what to do
Guess I'd jump for joy
Scream and shout too
I'd run through the streets
Spreading peace and love
Spreading happiness
If I Ever Got Caught Up

I'm still recording
Still writing songs
I'm way behind
But still coming on

If I Ever Got Caught Up
I wouldn't know what to do
Guess I'd jump for joy
Scream and shout too
I'd run through the streets
Spreading peace and love
Spreading happiness
If I Ever Got Caught Up

If I seem edgy
I want you to know
I never mean to take it out on you
Life has its problems
And I get more than my share
But that's me one thing I never mean to do
'Cause I love you
