Good Natured Man

lyrics

He's a good natured man with a short attention span
he don't listen to a single word I speak
this feeling deep inside
you know it ain't hard to describe
when he looks my way
my knees go weak

We could build us a home
Put some books on a shelf
as long as I'm with you
I don't mind talking to myself

He's a good natured man with a short attention span
He don't remember anything I tell him to
I ask for sky, he brings the lake
I call for beans, he brings me cake
but I wouldn't have it any other way

We could build us a home
Put some grub on the table
as long as I'm with you
I am loving and I am able

He's a good natured man with a short attention span
He is wearing running shoes in his mind
Happiness he brings
Without doing a damn thing
Without him, I'd rather go blind

We could build us a home
Where the doggies bark
as long as I'm with you
I don't mind being in the dark


He's a good natured man with a short attention span
I have learned to live my days by him so free
I can say just what I want
and my words will never haunt
for he's never really listening to me

We could build us a home
Where we rest our sleepy bones
as long as I'm with you
Everywhere will be my home

He's a good natured man with a short attention span
The dust has come to settle on the spine
Old age is here today
as I turn to him to say,
I love you and I'm so glad you are mine

We could build us a grave
between bramble and the dirt
as long as I'm with you
then dying shouldn't hurt
as long as I'm with you
then dying shouldn't hurt
