Too Much Time
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band Lyrics

[Chorus:] I got too much time, too much time
I got too much time to be without love

In my life I've got a deep devotion
Wide as the sky and deep as the ocean
Every war that's waged makes me cry
Every bird that goes by gets me high

[Spoken: Sometimes when it's late and I'm a little bit hungry I heat
up some old stale beans, open up a can of sardines, eat crackers and
dreams of somebody to cook for me.]

[Repeat chorus, verse and chorus]
