A man was bothering me today and I Wanted to tell him to go away But I stood and listened to him anyway, okay. He said he didn't want to shoot that man And it was his thing and I wouldn't understand And he had done all that he can, okay.
I guess his body was as good as mine And just like me he was wasting time Turning over every stone to see what he could find, okay. He was filling tank and he asked for money I lied and said I didn't have any Then my conscious took over and I gave him a hand full of change.
Don't do a thing. Stay right there. You'll lie there. You don't seem to care
I know it's hard to survive in the city When the beautiful days don't look so pretty And you don't have windows to keep the night away, okay. He was dirty and stink and just a bit crude But I didn't say that because that's kind of rude And he didn't care what I had to say in the first place, okay.
I wanted to say you're a big disgrace to the world, Yourself, and the human race And reach back and pop him one good time in the face, okay. No it's not okay and I didn't do that But I gave him a smile and tipped my hat and told him to have a very nice rest Of the day
Don't do a thing. Don't do a thing. Stay right there. You'll lie there. You'll lie there. You don't seem to care.
Guess he bought some booze with it
And sure that bothers me a little bit but it's his life and I can't tell him How to live it
As he turned and started to go his way I tried to think of something wise to Say like...
Don't do a thing. Stay right here. You'll lie here. You don't seem to care. You'll die here. You don't seem to care
