NEVER HAVE ENOUGH

J.D. Souther

Never have enough bein' ready
That's why it took me so long
Ev'rybody that feels happy inside
You already knows the song

About the horse-drawn politicians
Marchin' in a Hollywood line
With a gun and a picture of Nixon
Singin', 'get me to the war on time' . . .

Never have enough bein' ready
That's why it took me so long
Ev'rybody that's been walkin' barefoot
Already knows the song

Ring around the beggarman
Freeloadin' off of the state
He could work if he wanted to
But God, isn't California great
           (and you know it is, too)

Never have enough bein' ready
That's why it took me so long
Ev'rybody that feels happy inside
Already knows this song

Never have enough bein' ready
That's why it took me so long
Ev'rybody that feels happy inside
Already knows this song

What if you were picnicking out in the country
Ya take off your shoes and your shirt
But the sun won't get through to burn you
'Cause the air's too full of dirt
           (and that's why I'm about to sing. . . )

Never have enough bein' ready
That's why it took me so long
Ev'rybody that feels happy inside
Already knows this song

Never have enough bein' ready
That's why it took me so long
           (one of the reasons, but anyhow . . .)
Ev'rybody that feels happy inside
Already knows this song
