A Little More Time With You

Album: Hourglass (1997)
  • Oh oh, oh oh oh.
    Got a watchdog watchin' me, Doggy.
    Watchin' me packin' my bags.
    He knows I'm leavin' town.
    I can see that it's a drag.
    Why leave the life I love?
    Here in the great state of Maine.
    Just to ride that shinin' rail.
    Just aside that ball and chain.

    (Chorus):
    Oh I, gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    That's right.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, my Babe.
    Oh oh oh.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    Yes I do, yes I do.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    Oh oh, oh oh oh.

    Passed on the cocaine.
    Said bye-bye to my Methadone.
    Put down the bottle for one more day.
    Backin' offa my tobacco Jones.
    Still I'm feelin' like a hopeless junkie.
    Like a man that can't say no.
    I look back, and there's that monkey.
    Rascal won't let go

    (Chorus)
    Oh I, gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    Yes I do, yes I do.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, my Babe.
    Oh oh oh.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    Yes I do now, yes I do now, yes I do.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    Oh oh, oh oh oh.

    I get high, and I can't calm down
    I get high, just hangin' around
    I get high, I go lost and found
    I get high, oh why.

    (Chorus)
    Oh I, gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    I'll be walkin' in the lights.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, my Babe.
    Oh oh oh.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    Gimme just a little more time, just a little more time.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    Oh oh, oh oh oh.
    Coda.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    Yeah, na na,
    Yeah, na na na na na, na na na na na na na yeah.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, my Babe.
    Oh oh oh.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    Yes I do, yes I do.
    Gotta spend, a little more time with you, Babe.
    Oh oh, oh oh oh, yeah, Babe.
