Jack Ingram Pick Up the Tempo Lyrics

Some people are saying that time take care
Of people like me
And I'm living too fast Lord you know I can't last
Too much longer
But little they see that their thoughts of me
Is my savior
And little they know the beat ought to go
Just a little faster

So pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home
The singer ain't singing
And the drummer's been drinkin'
Too long
Time will take care of itself so leave time alone
And pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home

I'm wild and I'm mean, I'm creating a scene
I'm goin' crazy
I'm good and I'm bad, I'm happy I'm sad
And I'm lazy
I'm quiet and I'm loud and I'm gatherin' a crowd
Like crazy
I'm 'bout half off the wall but I learned it all
In the Navy

So pick up the tempo
Just a little bit
Take it on home
The singer ain't singing
And the drummer's been drinkin'
Too long
Time will take care of itself so leave time alone
And pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home

And pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home
