HAVEN'T GOT TIME (Robert J. Purvis)

Haven't got time to live

Haven't got time to be

Got to go down to the stony ground

'Cos it's the only place for me, yeah

You can't move me away, no

You can't move me away, no


Haven't got time to stand

Haven't got time to stare

Got to get back to the dirt-ridden track

Because I left my home back there

You can't move me away, yeah

You can't move me away, yeah


[trombone solo]


Haven't got time to look

Haven't got time to see

Got to get back to the stumblin' path

'Cos it's the only place to be, yeah

You can't move me away, yeah

You can't move me away, yeah


[guitar solo]


Like to move, but I haven't got time

Like to move, but I haven't got time

Like to move, but I haven't got time

Like to move, but I haven't got time

Like to move, but I haven't got time for you


Like to move, but I haven't got time

Like to move, but I haven't got time

Like to move, but I haven't got time

Like to move, but I haven't got time

Like to move, but I haven't got time for you


Like to move, but I haven't got time

Like to move, but I haven't got time

Like to move...

HAVEN'T GOT TIME (Robert J. Purvis)
[Live on The Geordie Scene: January, 1975]

Haven't got time to look

Haven't got time to see

Got to go down to the stony ground

'Cos it's the only place to be, yeah

You can't move me away, no

You can't move me away, no


Haven't got time to stand

Haven't got time to stare

Got to get back to the dirt-ridden path

Because I left my home back there

You can't move me away, no

You can't move me away, no


[trombone solo]


Haven't got time to look

Haven't got time to see

Got to get back to the stumblin' path

'Cos it's the only place to be, yeah

You can't move me away, no

You can't move me away, no


[solo]


Like to move, but I haven't got time

I said I'd like to move, but I haven't got time

Like to move, but I haven't got time

You know, he'd like to move, but he hasn't got time...
