Modern Times

In these modern times

some people don't get their messages

Some people loose their minds

just tryin' to hold onto them

They act like they're blind

they never try to look at the truth of it

So I sing these blues

in these modern times

 

Now I could be happy all the time

I could be lazin' out on the beach all day

I could be rockin' and a rollin' with you darlin' all night

or I could be starin' in a mirror

just askin' myself how I'm ever

gonna make it through this goddam modern life

 

In these modern times

where I don't get my messages

Sometimes I loose my mind

just tryin' to hold onto it

I act like I'm blind

but still I try to look at the truth of it

So I sing these blues

in these modern times
