I buy the nicest things
From a supermarket store.
Vitamin land and marzipan
And I know just what they're all for.
I've organized my useless life in a way
I've never done before.
Even visit the dentist now,

But I got no time
For silly chitter chatter.
I'm on my way,
'Cause while my blood's still warm
And my mind doesn't matter,
I'm hopin' to stay,
Because I've got a thing about
Seein' my grandson grow old.

I just can't wait to see
That city on the moon
With air conditioned gardens
That'll play your favorite tune.
I'll see my feet upon that street
If it's the last thing that I do.
Even sweep the roads to be there,

But I got no time
For silly chitter chatter.
I'm on my way,
'Cause while my blood's still warm
And my mind doesn't matter,
I'm hopin' to stay,
Because I've got a thing about
Seein' my grandson grow old.

I'll see my feet upon that street
If it's the last thing that I do.
Even sweep the roads to be there,

But I got no time
For silly chitter chatter.
I'm on my way,
'Cause while my blood's still warm
And my mind doesn't matter,
I'm hopin' to stay,
Because I've got a thing about
Seein' my grandson grow old.
