My Mind Keeps Movin’

Walk into a restaurant with chicken on my mind Look at the menu I want roastbeaf and wine A waitress comes up I order baked beans and bread Oh when she brings it I want ham'n eggs instead Because my mind keeps a movin' bouncin' and a groovin' A flippin' floppin' every whichaway From minute to minute if my mind ain't really in it Never know just what I'm do or say Sometimes I wake up happy sometimes I wake up mean Sometimes I wake up missin' somethin' I ain't seen Might wake up wasted and I might wake up dead Might wake up and look around and jump back into bed Because my mind keeps a movin'... [ guitar ] Sittin' home at midnight thinkin' bout Marie go to the phone I dial Carol Lee I say come by babe just as fast as you can And when she gets there I'm thinkin' bout Ann Because my mind keeps a movin'... Fly off to Paris just to get away from home Get off in London and I grab a boat for Rome Got to St Louis be in St Paul or else take a trip and go no place at all Because my mind keeps a movin'... I go to a psychiatrist to straighten my head Then I decide I need a chiropractor instead Put salt in my coffee and ketchup in my tea only dig a chick that don't dig me Because my mind keeps a movin'... Sometimes I don't shave and I look kinda weird So shave off my hair and I grow a beard Shave off my beard dye my eyebrows green Play myself a song upon a tambourine Because my mind keeps a movin'...
