Next Thing On My List Lyrics

by Toby Keith

Under an old brass paper weight,
is my list of things to do today
go to the bank and the hardware store,
put a new lock on the cellar door
I cross em off as I get em done,
but when the sun is settin'
there's still more than a few things left I haven't got to yet.
Go for a walk, say a little prayer, take a deep breath of mountain air,
put on my glove,and play some catch, it's time that I make time for that.
Wade the shore, cast a line,look up an old lost friend of mine
sit on the porch, and give my girl a kiss, start living
That's the next thing on my list.
Wouldn't change the course of fate, if cutting the grass just had to wait,
cause I got more important things, like pushing my kid on a backyard swing
I won't break my back for a million bucks I can't take to my grave, so why put
off for tomorrow what I could get done today.
Like go for a walk, say a little prayer, take a deep breath of mountain air,
put on my glove, and play some catch, it's time that I make time for that
wade the shore, cast a line, look up an old lost friend of mine
sit on the porch, and give my girl a kiss, start living
That's the next thing on my list.
Raise a little Hell, laugh till it hurts,put an extra five in the plate at
church, call up my folks just to chat, it's time that I make time for that.
Stay up late and oversleep, show her what she means to me, catch up on all the
things I've always missed, just start living
That's the next thing on my list.
Under an old brass paper weight is my list of things to do today.
