Lotta Things To Say
(P.Mark)
From the album Blood and Treasure

When I was a school boy I was a talking fool
The teacher'd snap her ruler and keep me after school
     She’d say you gotta lotta things to say
     You speak your mind but your mind's always running away

I grew up with ideas, I always had a line
I'd lose a job a week telling the boss what's on my mind
     See I gotta lotta things to say
     I speak my mind but my mind's always running away

I caught a train for Boston, tried to make a few friends
They put me off in Hartford with my hat in my hand
     See I gotta lotta things to say
     I speak my mind but my mind's always running away

Then I met a woman, she read a poem every day
I told her that I loved her in a 100 different ways
     See I gotta lotta things to say
     I speak my mind but my mind's always running away

I held up a bank so I could buy her a ring
While talking with the teller they slapped the cuffs on me
     See I gotta lotta things to say
     I speak my mind But my mind's always running away

The judge said, boy now speak your peace
You're headed to the pokey when you finish your speech
     I said judge, I gotta lotta things to say
     I speak my mind but my mind's always running away

I’ll shout it to the mountains…I’ll shout it to the shores
At the end of the day it's just my word against yours
     See I gotta lotta things to say
     I speak my mind but my mind's always running away

They dragged me from the courthouse
They threw me in the can
Then I told'em all in jail I was an innocent man
     See I gotta lotta things to say
     I speak my mind but my mind's always running away

I hunted down that woman when they finally let me out
She kissed me saying “we got so much to talk about”
     See we gotta lotta things to say
     Let's speak our minds while our minds are running away

I told the priest at the altar enough is enough
I'm having second thoughts ‘cuz she talks too much
     See she's gotta lotta, gotta lotta things to say
     She speaks her mind but her mind's always running away

I learned my lesson, learned it there and then
I'll tell anyone who'll listen that I'll never talk again
     See I gotta lotta things to say
     I speak my mind but my mind's always running away
