People are sayin' that times take care
Of people like me
And that I'm livin' too fast for I know, I can't last
Much longer

But little they know that their thoughts of me
Is my savior
And little they know that beat ought to go
A little faster

Pick up the tempo just a little bit
And take it on home
The singer ain't singin'
And the drummer's been draggin' too long

Time will take care of itself
So just leave time alone
And pick up the tempo just a little
Then take it on home, oh take it on home

I'm wild and I'm mean and I'm creatin' a scene
I'm goin' crazy
I'm good and I'm bad and I'm happy and sad
And I'm lazy

I'm quiet and loud and I'm gatherin' a crowd
And I like rabies
I'm 'bout half off the wall but I learned it all
In the navy

So pick up the tempo just a little bit
And take it on home
The singers ain't singin'
And the drummer's been draggin' too long

Time will take care of itself
So just leave time alone
And pick up the tempo just a little
Then take it on home, oh take it on home

Pick up the tempo just a little bit
And take it on home
The singer ain't singin'
And the drummer's been draggin' too long

Time will take care of itself
So just leave time alone
And pick up the tempo just a little
Then take it on home, oh take it on home

Oh take it on home
Oh yeah take it home
Oh yeah
Oh yeah take it on home
