"One Time Bells" as written by and Stinchcomb Stumpf....
Islands and inside down
Riding the next line downtown
Shadowed when it slowed down
Why did it stop so loud now?
Time is what we got out
Why do we stay tied down?
To staring the sidewalk down

I been running since then
And they started to complain
And it started to get older
In the state that it's in
Every days just the same
And this time it started over

This morning we're at it again
? like love my ?
? like ? the skin
Once we stop
Have you ever stopped where?

Well

Child's screaming at a way-out ball
Looking very fine all the people that you walk
Ringing one time bells
Ringing one time bells

Another town I'll be critical
Working all the fun when we're rid of it all
Ringing one time bells
I answer

The neighbours they're at it again
The ? below won't matter
They're running a sound from within
Once they stop
Have you ever stopped when?

la la la laaa
la la la laaa
la la la laaaaa
la la la laaa
la la la laaa
la la la laaa
la la la laaaaa
la la la laaa

    General CommentAn honest attempt:

    I lived and inside down,
    Riding the next line down to,
    Shadowed when it slowed down,
    Why did it stop so loud, sir?
    Time is that we got out,
    Why did we stay tied down to,
    Staring the sidewalk down?

    I've been running since then,
    And they started to complain,
    And it started to get older,
    I'd love to stay with being made,
    Every day is just the same,
    And this time we started over,

    This morning we're at it again,
    Complaining like love ??,
    ?? and under the skin,
    Once we stopped,
    Have you ever stopped, well?

    Well?

    A child is grinning at a red-eyed ball,
    Working at to find out the people that you are,
    Ringing one time bells,
    Ringing one time bells,

    Another time I'll be critical,
    Working all the fun when we're rid of it all,
    Ringing one time bells,
    I answer,

    The neighbors they're at it again,
    Their scrapers below won't matter,
    They're running a sound from within,
    Once they stop,
    Have you ever stopped, well?

    la la la laaa,
    la la la laaa,
    la la la laaaaa,
    la la la laaa,
    la la la laaa,
    la la la laaa,
    la la la laaaaa,
    la la la laaa.
