Color me once, color me twice
Everything gonna turn out nice
Everlasting arms you gotta
Keep me from these false alarms

Alarm, alarm I see you sad
Maybe I see you I'm glad
Maybe maybe the fire of her desire

Patience, patience said the man
Patience, patience I can't understand
Patience like a man and a wife I got patience
On my neck like a cold, cold knife

I say Jack be nimble Jack fall dead
Jack bend over and give Jilly head
Oh, you gotta help my body heal my soul

Dead men working a sinner a saint
Mixing up a pail of paint
Painted the house, black as night
When the sun came up the house was white

Gotta go on, gotta go on
We gotta go on, you gotta go on
You gotta go on, go on, go on
Try and live life like I couldn't

Songwriters
GANO, GORDON / RICHIE, BRIAN
