THEY'RE TAKING EVERYTHING AWAY

Jack Tempchin, Glenn Frey

Wear your seat belt in your car
Don't stop in at that smokey bar
Don't you watch those young girls dance
'Cause man you're takin' quite a chance

You better learn to do without
Just have some celery and sprouts
Don't touch that milk or cheese or meat
And no more ice cream for a treat

They're takin' everything away
They're takin' everything away
That's no good for you they say
They're takin' everything away

You can't get drunk, you can't get high
You can't have sex or you might die
There's nothing left to do but pray
They're takin' everything away

No more coffee no more booze
You best be careful what you choose
And you can go ahead and cry
'Cause no more burgers, no more fries

They're takin' everything away
They're takin' everything away
That's no good for you they say
They're takin' everything away

You gave up donuts long ago
Now give up girls and pot and blow
I guess I'll live a long long time
But until then I'll lose my mind

They're takin' everything away
They're takin' everything away
That's no good for you they say
They're takin' everything away

You can't get drunk, you can't get high
You can't have sex or you might die
There's nothing left to do but pray
They're takin' everything away
