The Lyrics

Idle time, idle time
Nothing's going on you see.
So I write silly trite,
Just to keep my hands busy.

That's how it goes, I may wish for mo'
Wish for more, however.

Idle time, idle time
Seems to go on forever.


Busy time, busy time.
Papers waiting to greet me,
Wall to wall, blank and bright,
All just waiting to greet me.

Oh, how I long for those times so slow.
I could take forever.

Busy times, idle times,
Always wish for the other.
