Song of the Day
June 23, 2008
Take off your hat; kick off your shoes.
I know you ain't goin' anywhere.
Run 'round the town, singin' your blues.
I know you ain't goin' anywhere.
You've always been a good friend of mine,
But you're always sayin' farewell.
And the only time that you're satisfied
Is with your feet in the wishing well.
Oh! Yeah! Wish!
Throw down your gun
You might shoot yourself
Or is that what you're tryin' to do?
Put up a fight you believe to be right
And someday the sun will shine through.
You've always got something to hide;
Something you just can't tell.
And the only time that you're satisfied
Is with your feet in the wishin' well.
Oh! Yeah!
But I know what you're wishin' for:
Love in a peaceful world. Yeah!
Love in a peaceful world. Oh, yeah!
Love in a peaceful world.

You've always been a good friend of mine,
But you're always sayin' farewell.
And the only time that you're satisfied
Is with your feet in the wishin' well!
Oh! Yes! But, uh! Ow!
I wish you well!
Ooh-ooh-ooh! The wishing well! Ow!
Everybody has a wish
Everybody has a dream. Yeah, yeah!
I wish you well Ow!
Well, you dream
Your own time
