Buddy Guy - Your Mind Is On Vacation Lyrics




Sitting there yakkin' right in my face
Coming on like you own the place
If silence was golden
You couldn't raise a dime
Cause your mind is on vacation and your mouth is working overtime

You're quoting figures, you're dropping names
You're telling stories, you're playing games
You always laugh when things ain't funny
You try to sound like you don't need money
If talk was criminal, you'd lead a life of crime
Cause your mind is on vacation and your mouth is working overtime

You know that life is short and talk is cheap
Don't make promises that you can't keep
If you don't like the song I'm singing, just grin and bear it
All I can say is if the shoe fits wear it
If you must keep talking please can you make it rhyme
Cause your mind is on vacation and your mouth is working overtime
Cause your mind is on vacation and your mouth is working overtime

    Actually this fits Biden much more than Trump. Trump knows what he's saying. Biden is GAFFE-MASTER.

    my father was leading a life that any father or mother would be proud of.straight a's at UCSB,promising career ahead..then in one semester it was 'turn on,move out of student housing-into Beer Gardens and bake my Nana his mother special brownines.' he couldn't have blown it more thoroughly if it had been scripted; honor roll to jail in blink of an eye..all as he became heavily into...Mose Alison and Butterfield/Bloomfield!' I love Mose Allisons music.
