Rollin' And Tumblin'

  • I don't think I'm goin' out anymore
    You better find some other body to comfort.
    When I was trembling baby you was a diamond,
    But you ain't a diamond no more.

    So what you wanna say is my head is a hurricane
    Well l-l-l-let me sleep on that, uh huh, alright.
    You say I'm hopelessly devoted to misery
    Well I don't wanna be so devoted no more, aw yeah

    And all of my friends wanna get into heaven
    And all I keep thinkin' is "I wish you were here"
    I heard that they been callin' me "The Great Depression"
    Rollin' and tumblin', breakin' my own heart again

    Shimmy shimmy shake baby right in my blood stream
    I don't know what it was that got in my room.
    My ticker-tape heart broke and everything shook in here
    But I learned it could be worse.

    So what you wanna say is my head is a weather-vane
    Spinning with the wind chime, right.
    Baby I was born on the fourth of July,
    Exploding like a firework, aw yeah

    And all of my friends wanna get into heaven
    And all I keep thinkin' is "I wish you were here"
    I heard that they been callin' me "The Great Depression"
    Rollin' and tumblin'

    And all of my friends wanna get into heaven
    And all I keep thinkin' is "I wish you were here"
    I heard that they been callin' me "The Great Depression"
    Rollin' and tumblin'

    So should I take everything, all your temporary medicines?
    Should I take your reds, your blues, and your cocaine?
    Should I take something to try on the weekend?
    Should I take anything, or did you mean everything?
    When I hit the wall, wrecked from it all
    You put flowers down on the cold ground
    And cry me a river
    And assure me I'm crazy
    While you question the answers
    And then you lean on my best friends
    Until you find better weather
    And you take a vacation
    I hope you got all my letters
    Signed "The Great Depression"
