Althea 75bpm

 


I told Althea I was feeling lost

Lackiní in some direction

Althea told me upon scrutiny that my

Back might need protection

I told Althea that treachery

Was teariní me limb from limb

Althea told me, now, cool down boy

Settle down, easy Jim

 

2. You may be Saturdayís child all grown

Moviní with pinch of grace

You may be a clown in the burying ground

Or just another pretty face

You may be the fate of Ophelia

Sleepiní and perchance to dream

Honest to the point of recklessness

Self-centered in the extreme

3. Ainít nobody messiní with you but you

Your friends are getting most concerned

Loose with the truth baby, itís your fire

Baby, I hope you donít get burned

When the smoke has cleared she said,

Thatís what she said to me

Gonna want a bed to lay your head

And a little sympathy

 

Bridge:

There are things you can replace

And others you cannot

The time has come to weigh those things

This space is getting hot

You know this space is getting hot.

 

4, I told Althea Iím a roving sign

And I was born to be a bachelor

Althea told me, Okay, thatís fine

You know, now Iím tryiní to catch her

 

Canít talk to you without talkiní to me

Weíre guilty of the same old thing

Thinkiní a lot about less and less

And forgetting the love we bring
