If You Want It

Busy doin’ nuthin’
watchin’ the people go by
ever’body browsin’
ain’t nobody gonna buy

ain’t that the way it is, babe
when you’re livin’ on the street
freezin’ from the winter
burnin’ from the heat

I’m tellin’ you, baby
if you want it
reach out and grab it

ladies play with fire
meltin’ up the ice
playin’ all the numbers
rollin’ all the dice

ain’t that the way it is, babe
when your heart’s a-gonna break
are you gonna lose it
is it more than you can take

I’m tellin’ you, baby
if you want it
reach out and grab it

baby, you’re runnin’
but my time is gonna come
sweetly from the heavens
my cryin’ days are done

you will come and save me
we’ll be together again
cuz you know I’ll never share you
share you with another man

ain’t that the way it is, babe
and my heart’s open wide
and you’ll come back, baby
you’re gonna step back inside

cuz I know, baby, you want it
and you’ll reach out
and grab it

(from “Part Five: An Album Full”)

Another lightweight little old school ditty. The tune better be catchy ’cause I ain’t sayin’ much here. I notice I reference the Beach Boys in the first line. Also, there’s a reminder that I must’ve written this while I was working at a department store selling lamps and rugs: “ain’t nobody gonna buy”.
