Lyrics

REDWING BLACKBIRD

(chorus)
have you talked to a redwing blackbird lately
have you dangled your feet in a rushing mountain stream
have you stopped to smell a flower
have you danced in a thunder shower
have you taken the time to hug the trunk of a mighty tree

car phones bank loans mortgage on the new home
faxes taxes no time to relax
caffeine nicotine running on adrenaline
racing with the clock tick-tock tick-tock

briefcase straight lace no emotion poker face
meetings briefings everyone's competing
elevators escalators climbing up the skyscrapers
don't stop till you get to the top

(chorus)

rush hour highways fast food microwaves
cars trains jet planes living in the fast lane
burnin the gas kissin ass going nowhere fast
racing with the clock tick-tock tick-tock
digital microchips hard drive floppy discs
hyped up in debt surfing on the internet
riding the crest of the stress gotta be the best
don't stop till you get to the top

(chorus)

cheap thrills big bills go to bed with sleeping pills
insane left brain alcohol to numb the pain
movies and TV virtual reality
racing with the clock tick-tock tick-tock
plastic styrofoam holes in the ozone
deforestation runnin out of oxygen
credit cards work hard paying of the new car
don't stop till you get to the top

(chorus)
