Little River Band

Little River Band - Lead Me To Water

Words and music by John Kay

One glass in the mornin', two shots at night

Three fourths anytime that you wanna get tight

Drink wine to remember, swill gin to forget

And blame the world for the peace that you haven't found yet

He stood at the bar with a bottle in his hand

And he complained so bitterly 'bout a world he could not understand

He said "All my life, I've hustled and paid to survive

Say, can't you see, what's wrong with the world ain't me"

Ain't nothing' like it used to be

Ain't nothing' like it once was

Ain't nothin' like it ought to be

Ain't nothin' right no more

One pill in the mornin', two joints at night

Three spoons any time that you want to feel right

Toot coke to remember, shoot smack to forget

And blame the world for the life you haven't lived yet

Get up in the mornin', give love at night

And take time for yourself when you're losing the fight

Take care to remember, it takes time to forget

Thank God for the time that you haven't had yet
