[Chorus:] I got too much time, too much time
I got too much time to be without love

In my life I’ve got a deep devotion
Wide as the sky and deep as the ocean
Every war that’s waged makes me cry
Every bird that goes by gets me high

[Spoken: Sometimes when it’s late and I’m a little hungry I heat
up some old stale beans, open up a can of sardines, eat crackers and
dream of somebody to cook for me.]

[Repeat chorus, verse and chorus]

(1972)

  1. Mike "Miguel" B. Good says:

    The lyrics are wrong, please correct them.
    The spoken part above says:
    “Sometimes when it’s late and I’m a little bit hungry I heat
    up some old stale beans, open up a can of sardines, eat crackers and
    dreams of somebody to cook for me.”
    It’s not “little bit” , just “little hungry” and it’s not “eat crackers and dreams of”, it’s “eat crackers and dream about”.
    So the correct spoken part is:
    “Sometimes when it’s late and I’m a little hungry, I heat up some old stale beans,
    open up a can of sardines,
    eat crackers and dream
    about somebody to cook for me.”
