Waylon Jennings — Pick Up The Tempo lyrics

(Willie Nelson)
Some people are saying that time
Will take care of people like me
That I'm living too fast
And they say I can't last much longer.
But little they see
That their thoughts of me is my saviour
And little they know
I might live forever.
So pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home
The singer ain't singin'
And the drummer's been draggin' too long.
Time'll take care of itself
So just leave time alone
And pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home.
I'm wild and I'm mean
I'm creatin' a scene I'm goin' crazy
I'm good and I'm bad
And I'm happy and sad and I'm lazy.
I'm quiet and I'm loud
And I'm gatherin' a crowd and I like gravy
About half off the wall
But I learned it all in the Navy.
So pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home
The singer ain't singin'
And the drummer's been draggin' too long.
Time'll take care of itself
So just leave time alone
And pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home.
Yeah, pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home...
