about

Retoons project. Don't Mean to be Rude lyrics written circa 1980.

lyrics

I may not have no shoes upon my feet
That don't mean I can't work all day
The sun may not be shinning on you
Sure ain't gonna help whining to me

Don't mean to be rude...

Cos I'll go right on walking on my way
I'll go right on walking
I'll go right on walking
On my way

Don't mean to be rude....

Went up to my boss but he didn't have no work for me today
So I took off to the sea side, had a little splash in the sea
I wrote a little song, took it along but they said go away
All I seem to get these days is get thrown away

Don't mean to be rude...

So I'll go right on walking, go right on walking on my way
I'll go right on walking
I'll go right on walking
On my way

Don't mean to be rude....

The dreamers and the schemers and the rest of the lazy bleeders all the way
Does someone else always seem to beat you to every stage
You got to wheel and deal, you got to tax dodge on your pay
Is that what it takes, that what it takes, today

Don't mean to be rude....

So I'll go right on walking, go right on walking on my way
I'll go right on walking
I'll go right on walking
On my way

Don't mean to be rude....

I like to be out walking in the country
With a song on my mind to whistle away
Well I'll bid you a greeting, should I pass your way
But don't ask me to stop, I said, no don't ask me to stay

Don't mean to be rude....

Cos I'll go right on walking, go right on walking on my way
Excuse me
I'll go right on walking
I'll go right on walking
On my way

Don't mean to be rude....

KCJ RAR York, UK

Song creator, independent artist.
KCJ RAR's Project Retoons, happy time, recreating my songs from the 70's and 80's, home recording guitars and virtual instruments to create classic rock numbers that never were; symphonic prog epics that could have been; and avant-garde psychedelic art rock grooves that surely fill a gap in music history? Maybe not, but lots of fun! ... more
