It's Just A Thought

This song is by Creedence Clearwater Revival and appears on the album Pendulum (1970) and on the compilation album Chronicle, Volume Two (1986).

It's just a thought,
But I've noticed somethin' strange,
Gettin' harder to explain.
All the years are passin' by and by;
Still I don't know
What makes it go.
Who said to wait and you'll see?

It's just a thought,
But I wondered if you knew
That the song up there is you.
They can't take it from you
If you don't give it away,
Don't give it away.
Ooh, it's given away.

It's just a thought,
But the word has come too late,
That a bad idea will take
Just about a lifetime to explain,
And don't you see?
Good one's gonna be much longer.
Who's gonna wait just to see?
