Got the Time

from by Skye Zentz



Darlin when we’re ready, we’ll be goin’ steady
When we’ve got the time
Maybe when I’m older, just a little older
When I get the time
We could build a cabin
Or head up to Manhattan
Someplace with walls you can climb…
Maybe if we ever get ourselves together
We could plan a time when we could find the time

Maybe out in Europe I could be your maple syrup
When we’ve got the time
I would slide around your plate
Sticky sweet, you wouldn’t wait to say
That you’d make the time
We could open up a dinette,
I’d supply the entertainment
And you could drink all the Red Wine
Maybe when we’re settled and not quite so disheveled
We could have a helluva time making the time

Boy you got to see
You came and altered me
And if you cross the sea
Back home to me, I’ll call you mine

I’ll be waiting by the fire just to see what you inspire
When we’ve got the time
We’ll plant rows of corn and lettuce
And the drought will never get us
When we make the time
We’ll be energy efficient, we will handwash all the dishes
And turn all the lights off at bedtime
We’ll make a perfect pair
When we’ve got the time

And we’ve both gotta see new towns
But when it’s time to settle down
I think being your gal would be fine
You’ll be my man
When we’ve got the time
