I like wastin' time baby, wastin' time with you Me and you ought to run off, waste a day or two Who would be the wiser if we just slipped away Wasted all our time in a special way Time's a precious gift, love, time is money, time is life Time don't mean a thing with you by my side I like wastin' time baby, wastin' time with you I like wastin' time baby, every time is new

Superpowers 00:51
We've all got superpowers and We can realize it in the shower Every morning Without warning (rinse & repeat)

Way down in the Old City outside the Pilot Light The skinny boys and the pale girls are spoilin' for a fight The flower man is comin', but he won't sell much tonight And I'm just waitin' on a sign The sweethearts on Magnolia will take you for a spin A 20-minute date for a half-pint of gin Somebody called the Mayor, but the Mayor wasn't in And I'm just holding the line Down by the river with a Vestal girl You never known nothin' til she gives you a whirl Benny's got some hooch to make your straight hairs curl And I never seen the Sunsphere rise No, I've never seen the Sunsphere rise. The flower man is comin', but the Mayor isn't in Benny's got some hooch to make your curly hairs spin I'm holding this line and I'm waiting on a sign And I never seen the Sunsphere rise, boys, No, I've never seen the Sunsphere rise.

Hometown bar on the holidays We're all out having fun Escaping from the family Like we did at 21 I ain't seen you in months and years Now we're back at this old saloon Trading hugs and happy tears Time goes by so soon Chorus: I love every last one of you All you stinking drunks I would not trade the lot of you For a million treasure trunks People who need people Are the luckiest of lunks And I love every last one of you All you stinking drunks Well, I've slept with one or two of you In my life and time And I know that a few of you Are still partners in crime I don't know what tomorrow holds But I'll take it over yesterday I hope we all live to get old And wrinkled up and gray Chorus again
