Original video
How do you whisper out loud?
Be all alone in a crowd? Well
How do you manage to fly?
Breathe like the wind when you sigh?

Sun burning like fire
She's not feeling the sun
Look at her run

Looks like it's starting to rain
Can't quite decide who's to blame
And how do you manage to fly?
Breathe like the wind when you sigh?

Sun burning like fire
She's not feeling the sun
Look at her run

And it looks like it's starting to rain
Can't quite decide who's to blame, well
Hey, alright

Mama told me so
"Son, you're getting slow
Find a girl and make your own
Women treat you bad
Everyone you had
Your legs are long but you ain't grown"

No, no, back off mama
I'm just learning and how
Got to help me light the fuse
I got the rocking chair rock 'n' roll blues, yeah

Daddy told me, "No
Take it kind of slow
Get your fill of living alone
Women treat you cruel
Lord, you're such a fool
Your legs are long but you ain't grown"

Hey, hey, back off mama
I'm just learning, learning how
Help me light the fuse
I got the rocking chair rock 'n' roll blues

Lord got to back off mama
I'm just learning and how
Got to help me light the fuse
I got the rocking chair rock 'n' roll blues

Oh now, now
Ooh
Hey
Help me
