"Things You Never Did"

[ from the album "Stop This!" (1996) ]

Lyrics

Things you never did and should have done
Drowning in a sea of opium
Gather rosebuds while ye may
Soon it's lack-a-day
Jump down from your diving board

Things you never did and should have done
Songs you never sang and should have sung
Dabble less in compromise, dawdle on the rungs
Join the circus, see the world .....
