Doo doo doo doo
No no no no no
Na na na na
Na na na na na
Oh oh oh oh
Na naa na naa
Na naa na naa
Lately me and the mrs just can't seem to agree yeah
‘bout the way people should have trust and go on living
I've lived and yes i've breathed all my life is a history
Make me feel so proud but is it wrong to, won't you tell me

Baby says she's gonna leave me tonight
I can't help myself all we do is seem to fight
I love her it's the truth nothing else should get in the way
My mind is sore i have got to change today

Somebody tells me what it takes to cruise this life with ease
How someone's promises can break making me think there's




No such thing as being too old wisdom's price is its weight in gold
I'll turn it all around because i want to, you can tell me

Only Omar could do this song justice. Saw him in concert in the 90's. One of the best artists this country has ever produced.

LivSimple

The CD with this song on was my introduction to Omar… I bought the CD on a whim simply because of the picture on the cover. I bought it and blasted the CD on a drive to my duty station in the military and was transported to a different world…I now own every single album he has made and will always hold on to them. Classic, timeless, good music.🔥🔥👊🏾✌🏾🚀
