If The World Didn't Spin

There's a squirrel on a ledge there's a bird in a tree
And try as they might they will never agree
The Tennessee sun feels so good on my skin
Well I guess we'd fall off if the world didn't spin

Well I went to the store for an oyster or two
A couple more beers and I'll kick off my shoes
Trim up my toenails or piss in the wind
(I don't know - I'm always pissing in the wind)
Well I guess we'd fall off if the world didn't spin

Well my lover's so crazy she laughs when I cry
She's happy, she's sad, and I never know why
We fight all the battles but nobody wins
Well I guess we'd fall off if the world didn't spin

We'd go round and round and round and round
and round and round and round and round
We'd go - (it's kinda boring, ain' it?)
We'd go up and down and up and down
and up and down
There ain't no place else to go

Well you arrive as a baby all goofy and soft
Then you're old and you're wrinkled and no better off
So do what you must - you can't do it again
(Them bastards won't let you do it again)
Well I guess we'd fall off if the world didn't spin
