    ------------------------------------------- LYRICS Below ---------------------------------------------

    __ Don’t matter if I do or don’t
    __Won’t matter if I will or won’t.

    _ I been shootin’ for the

    rockin’, swingin’, gamin’, flingin’! puttin’ in the
    time on the front line with a bunch of bustle (a)

    lot of hustle _ buckets of beer (and) social muscle. Looking’
    fine, On time, _ in line, Be a pro, Cash flow,

    Yo! Sock it away. Rainy day. Got more money
    than I can say. _Tax free! Stacks of packs.

    In the end of everything when I hear the angels sing
    Drop it all. There ain’t nothing I can bring when I get
    Up ‘round the bend ___ at The
    Red Light ____ I gotta

    let go the dough __ and say
    Good Night

    This road ends ___ at the
    Red Light ___ I

    Can’t check bags ___ for the
    Soul Flight!
    So I’m
    catchin’ my kicks. Hittin’ licks. Just
    jukin’ to my home made jungle mix. Spending

    time ___ and hard earned dime on my
    own True Blue. That’s not really anything

    new (And) you know I’m talkin’ in _ my mind’s

    right ‘cause I’m just left of out-a sight. _ We’ll be
    travelin’ light after we dig and are dug as we
    head to the end after cuttin’ a rug to get

    Up ‘round the bend ___ at The
    Red Light We gotta

    let go the dough ___ and say
    Good Night

    This road ends ___ at the
    Red Light ___ you

    Can’t check bags for the
    Soul flight!

    _I was told that to get to the top I’d
    have to work hard and fight. (I tip my hat to that!)
    _But these days, _ while so many are doggedly
    stabbing and tripping over each other
    _on their way to the Shiny Shallow End,
    I’ll watch…just for fun;
    _In one plane, I am only human._ But
    sometimes I cross over. ___

    _Lotta people funny in a peculiar way.
    Very caught up in the Big Display.
    _Beyond my bones, I grok different tones.
    _And I’m just going by what is known:
    _No matter the seeds sewn or crops grown. Do
    this. Do that. _ Be skinny. Get fat. Shrouds
    have no pockets. And after fighting’ the fight!, There’s
    nothing we can carry _ Try as we miiiiight! _ _ _ When we get ========================

    Up ‘round the bend _(round bend)__ at The
    Red Light ___(Reeeed Light) We gotta

    let go the dough ___(go dough) and say
    Good Night (Goooood night)

    This road ends ___ (road ends) at the
    Red Light (Reeeed light) you

    Can’t check bags _ (No No No No!) for the

    Soul flight! Red light! For the
    Soul flight! Red light! For the
    Soul flight! Red light! For the
    Soul flight! Red Light! Show less
