Praised be the rested and the cool-hand swain
A feather in his wavy hair
A prize for the calmer and the kinder Jane
A spot on the grass in the air

Bet you wish you had another chance
Bet you feel the heat
Bet you'd ask that bonnie lad to dance
Bet you scatter sleet

I just gotta' get you in my getaway car
A ticket to the reedy breeze
I just gotta' make a case for gazing at the stars
Count them or name them or sleep

Come on now you got another chance
Come on now let's ride
Come on now you know you know this dance
Come on kick the tide

Leave all those behind, the barkers and the mobs
Rivet all the ranks with a sigh
Black and white is watertight but goldenrod
Is growing in a garden nearby

Lay it down, the scripture and the sword
Lay it on a pile
Lay it down the bullhorn pre-record
Cadillac awhile
