Simmer back easy Jim

You may be Saturday's child all grown
Movin' with pinch of grace
You may be a clown in the burying ground
Or just another pretty face
You my be the fate of Ophelia
Sleepin' and perchance to dream
Honest to the point of recklessness
Self-centered to the extreme

Ain't nobody messin' with you but you
Your friends are getting most concerned
Loose with the truth baby it's your fire
Baby I hope you don't get burned
When the smoke has cleared she said
That's what she said to me
Gonna want a bed to lay your head
And a little sympathy

There are things you can replace

And others you can not
D chordD G chordG
The time has come to weigh those things
E chordE
This space is getting hot
Bm chordBm A chordA E chordE
You know this space is getting hot

I told Althea I'm a roving sign
And I was born to be a bachelor
Althea told me OK that's fine
So now I'm tryin' to catch her
Can't talk to you without talkin' to me
We're guilty of the same old thing
Thinkin' a lot about less and less
And forgetting the love we bring
