Long and Lazy River - Nellie McKay

You're supposed to have a laugh
And have a lot to say
You're supposed to have a gas
And make your getaway
But do you know you can't be wrong
How do you know you can't be wrong
You've got a long and lazy river to your soul

I wasn't sure about anything, no
I was secure in a rendering
Headed west now I guess I'ma wanderin, no
Wishing I weren't good at squandering
All I have

You've got a lot that's lame
And all your alibis
I've got a lot of shame
And things are dead inside
But do you know you can't be wrong
How do you know you can't be wrong
You've got a long and lazy river to your soul

I know I wear you down
You're looking awful bored
But if you're skipping town
And say you'll take no more
Well do you know you can't be wrong
How do you know you can't be wrong
You've got a long and lazy river to your soul

Color me damned,
Feeling petrified, yeah
Tear up my plans leave me weather blight
Guess it's past
It's a flash from the other side
Fading fast, goes the mast
It's a better climb, all I had

And now I know you're mad
I know you're filled with hate
I know that as I stand here
You know I'm too late
But do you know you can't be wrong
How do you know you can't be wrong
You've got a long and lazy river to your soul
To your soul?
To your soul?
