It's a crooked piece of time that we live in
All in all and all in all it's a crooked piece of time
It's a crooked piece of time that we're livin' in, oh baby
All in all and all in all, it's a crooked piece of time.

Things got rough, things got tough, things got harder than hard
We were just tryin' to make a livin' in our own back yard
We're born too late, we die too soon, anxiety's a terrible crime
If you can't come now, don't come at all, it's a crooked piece of time.

It's a crooked piece of time that we live in
All in all and all in all, it's a crooked piece of time
It's a crooked piece of time that we live in
All in all and all in all, it's a crooked piece of time.

Yesterday morning an ill wind came
Blew your picture right out of the picture frame
Even blew the candle out from underneath the flame
Yesterday morning an ill wind came.

It's a crooked piece of time that we live in
All in all and all in all, it's a crooked piece of time
It's a crooked piece of time that we live in
All in all and all in all, it's a crooked piece of time.

It's a crooked piece of time that we live in
All in all and all in all.

Things got rough, things got tough, things got harder than hard
We was just tryin' to make a livin' in our back yard.
