song list next song Spin Doctors: Letter H Spin Doctors: You've Got To Believe In Something I Can't Believe You're Still With Her
(Barron/Comess/Krizan/White)
We were on a vacation
In a turbulent nation
Guess itís part my fault
For not hauling you down
To the train station
Thereís no ring on your finger
Fly away donít you linger
Itís simply absurd
To think sheís a bird
Just because sheís a singer

Donít you bring her round ( x4)

Does it make you wonder
Why the innocent blunder?
When you sit n the sun
You should just have fun
Not summon the thunder
Sheís just like the mama
Generating the trauma
And I donít see why
Youíre still willing to try
When itís all just a drama

Donít you bring her round......

Sheís a taker not a giver
And I canít believe youíre still with her
She wouldíve sold you down the river
And I canít believe youíre still with her
Sheís a taker not a giver
And I canít believe youíre still with her
She wouldíve sold you sown the river
And I canít believe youíre still with her

We were on a vacation
In an idyllic location
Guess itís part my fault
For not pouring salt
On your frustration
Youíre afraid to be lonely
Well youíre not the only
Better to feel the pain
And to run through the rain
Than to live like a phony

Donít you bring her round.....
song list next song previous song Spin Doctors: You've Got To Believe In Something If Wishes Were Horses
(Barron/Comess/Krizan/White)
The streets are lined with gold
The cheese is full of mold
Oh, come into the fold with me
Global domination
While it sparks my imagination
It kills the vegetation
Ant itís not my cup of tea

The stairs are high and winding
My brother is divining
The empire is declining
But the wine is old
Itís never sweet enough
And a little too tough
And they play a bit too rough
And they talk a little bit too cold

Say thereís another color
Just say it on a bet
You know itís true
Though you havenít heard it yet
Theyíre playing it for keeps
Like pieces on a board
You know itís true
Though you havenít heard before

Welcome to the decline
Itís going just fine
Itís good for the wine
And itís good for the forces
You can run but you canít hide
And beggars would ride
If they had the horses

If wishes were horses
Beggars would ride
If wishes were horses
Beggars would ride
If wishes were horses
Beggars would ride
If wishes were horses
Oh, beggars would ride
Beggars would ride

The carousel is burning
The modelís eyes are yearning
The tables arenít turning
But the lunch is free
And itís never cheap enough
And itís always the same stuff
And they forever call your bluff
And forever get their fee

Say thereís another color.....

There is no limitation
Set upon this nation
What is our station
And relationship?
What about the pollution
And the constitution?
What is the purpose
Of this burning branch I grip?

If wishes were horses
Beggars would ride........
song list Spin Doctors: Letter J previous song Spin Doctors: Turn It Upside Down Indifference
(Kelly/Schenkman)
Indifferent minds seek nothing,
They wait to be told
They never stop talkin'

The way you talk to me
You give me the blues
I feel like walkin'

Expressions that the stories gave
Share your thoughts till they walk away
Revealing tales of kings and pawns,
Tall grass, dragons and mountain songs

Break the thread of indifference
They'll suck the wind right from your soul
To never listen to the voice of memory
Is to die waiting for nothing

I'd rather kiss the empty blue
than to stand here and waiting forever on you.
On a trip in this place called time,
Qhere no one lives, no one to find

Quiet streams of life gone by
Roll down the face of lovers
And in the early morning tears
We cry
Into each other

Sew the thread of indifference
It rolls on and on and on
Never listen to the voice of memory
Is to die waiting for nothing
