Now Old Man Winter’s dying He can’t hold on He’ll never see his daughter Spring, she’s coming home But I’ll be there to kiss her firm but pliant lips Her sunny days and gentle breezes will thaw my fingertips I heard it from the hillside The birds were singing They told of Winter’s passing But he was bringing me A girl as bright and warm as he was cold and he was mean That ashen face of his now must be turning green Now that her daddy’s dead I hope she’s coming back to stay My rough hands just gotta shake those darling buds of May The ice is breaking up now It melts like crazy He’s gone back underground Must be pushing daisies He’ll disappear into the potholes of my mind I’ll fly right over all of them with the girl he left behind

I live in the past ‘cause I know how it ends Will I last ‘till tomorrow? That all depends... The lights may be on but there’s nobody home So don’t try to call me on the bakelite telephone I’m a man out of time I should call for help but I ain’t got a dime Or the sense, that it takes in these days As you wait for the wind to come and blow you away Wanted to be rich but I couldn’t make the changes To spend all day kissing asses of strangers Black Friday came, all I heard was a crash Next thing you know I was out the window in a flash I’m a man out of time I ain’t got a prayer so I made up a rhyme No offense, to all those who would pray That there’s more to tomorrow than just yesterday Spend your whole life traveling forward and then find Your soul’s been unraveling Right on back to where you was before The rivers of time are beginning to flood While my Model-T tires get stuck in the mud My suicide note will be a telegram But who will be left to remember who I am? I’m a man out of time I should call for help but I ain’t got a dime Or the sense, that it takes in these days As you wait for the wind to come and blow you away Man out of time (Ran out of time)

When the sun comes shining down our street There's a lady that I often meet She pretends not to know me at all But she changes when the dark shadows fall I can feel it in my toes Someone's there when I take off my clothes Hello Mildred, how are you today? After midnight you'll be back to play In the daylight you play me so cool But after midnight I'm nobody's fool The folks in town think she's some kind of freak She likes to hide and she won't ever speak They say she's wild and just cannot be tamed They've never heard when she's purring my name When the world's gone to bed Her heart turns from all black to bright red Hello Mildred, etc...... I know she loves me, though she always snubs me The moonlight will bring a surprise Under the cover of darkness she's my lover Keeping me up 'til sunrise I don't care what they say on the street Their grapes are sour but my love is sweet Her heart was cold but it's starting to thaw So just be careful 'cause she's still got her claws I can feel it in my toes Someone's there when I take off my clothes Hello Mildred, etc......

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight I love you so but you know I'm running late Always got to be somewhere else Two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine I'd like to stay but you know I've gotta make time Always keep both eyes on the wealth How many hours until I return? Heartaches outnumber the lessons I've learned Three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten I'll be back though I really can't say when It's a long long way back from hell Four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven I'll pray each night that all roads lead to heaven Someday I may lean on your bell How many hours until I return? Heartaches outnumber the lessons I've learned How I regret, the life that I've chosen to lead I'll never rest, with my chickens all following me Five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve If this keeps up I know I'm gonna hate myself My stupidity keeps us apart Six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen I know what I'm saying but I don't like what I think I mean I could see the end from the start How many hours until I return? Heartaches outnumber the lessons I've learned
