Bubba & The Amiable Kraken - Tired Of Counting Down

When I was stupid, dumb and young
They told me not to jump the gun
I'd work the wheel and pop the bung
But things never seemed to get done

I've spent my life just counting sheep
But I've always been fast asleep
It never gets here, it's always past
The present comes and goes so fast

I'm so tired of counting down
Waiting around just gives me a frown
6,5,4,3,2 and 1
Now I won't wait to have my fun

They say it's just around the corner
But if I wait I'll be a mourner
They all said I should wait my turn
But if I do I'll end up in an urn

I'm so tired of counting down
My head's underwater and I just might drown
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6
I'm going to grab my share of kicks

They always try to tell you what to do
Stand in line, filling up the queue
But I've got to find someone new
And that is why I need you

I'm so tired of counting down
Let's light the fuse and pain the town
2, 4, 6, 8, 9 and 10
We'll make our way and start again
