IN THE EARLY MORNING HOUR OF LIGHT,

WHEN YOUR DAY STARTS TO BEGIN
DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE WARM ROOM YOU LEFT BEHIND

 AND HEAD ON BACK IN

WHEN YOU STEP OUT SIDE AND YOU LOOK REAL HARD
AT YOUR WORK, THERE IN THE SUN
DO YOU LOOK AT YOUR NEIGHBOUR ROLL YOUR EYES FAR BACK?
WHEN HE TELLS YOU HOW IT'S DONE

And I SAY... HEY YEH I'D LIKE TO HEAR IT
HEY YEH I'M ALMOST LISTENIN
HEY YEH, JUST NOT TODAY. 

And I SAY... HEY YEH I'D LIKE TO HEAR IT
HEY YEH I'M ALMOST LISTENIN
HEY YEH, JUST NOT TODAY. 

WHEN YOU HEAR THE ENGINE WARMING UP DO YOU
HEAD ON DOWN THE ROAD
DO YOU SETTLE ON DOWN, SET THE BOX REAL LOW
AND HIDE IN FROM THE COLD.

DO YOU MAKE A POINT TO KEEP A SCORE WHEN
A GOOD TURN HAS BEEN DONE
DO YOUR FRIENDS SAY FINE WHEN THEY DO YA SOMETHING SPECIAL,
DO THEY TELL YOU THAT YOU OWE THEM ONE.

And I SAY... HEY YEH I'D LIKE TO HEAR IT
HEY YEH I'M ALMOST LISTENIN
HEY YEH, JUST NOT TODAY. 

And I SAY... HEY YEH I'D LIKE TO HEAR IT
HEY YEH I'M ALMOST LISTENIN
HEY YEH, JUST NOT TODAY. 

NOW I SEE THE DUSK COMING NOW, THE DAYS ALL GONE,

IS THERE SOMETHING YOU MISSED TO SEND.
IS IT TOO LATE NOW WHEN THE MOON LAYS LOW,

IS IT GETTING OUT OF HAND.

DO YOU LIVE A BIG TIME STORY NOW
DO YOU EVER SHARE THE LOAD
WHEN YOU TAKE A WRONG STEP, FROM THE NORMAL PACE 
DO YOU HEAR ABOUT THE OLD

And I SAY... HEY YEH I'D LIKE TO HEAR IT
HEY YEH I'M ALMOST LISTENIN
HEY YEH, JUST NOT TODAY. 

And I SAY... HEY YEH I'D LIKE TO HEAR IT
HEY YEH I'M ALMOST LISTENIN
HEY YEH, JUST NOT TODAY.
