Man was a knife expert, kinda Jim Bowie type, swaggerin', blusterin', coon skin, I said "you’re not serious, right?"

Then I saw him grab my friend by the hair and I guess I should have prayed as he dragged him round, I said to myself, "There's gonna be some changes made".

(Gonna be some changes made)

Girl I knew and loved alone twenty years from afar, with a finger to her lips, she led me out to see the stars. She led me to the gritty lake and in it we did wade, she took my hand and put it there - gonna be some changes made.

(Gonna be some changes made)

Gonna...
be some..
gonna be some changes made!

(Gonna be some changes made)

Gonna be some changes made, changes made, can't keep doin' what I've been doin' these days.
Look in the mirror, I see a clown’s face, gotta take it off, gotta get myself straight.

Gonna be some changes made, some changes made, can't keep doin' what I've been doin' these days.
Better figure out something, things are looking grave.
Gonna be some changes made, changes made.

Up front for all to see, graceful like a bumblin' fool, then I thought I felt from my mouth slip a little drool, maybe no one noticed, on my mind heavily it weighed, I saw two people snickering, I said "there needs to be some changes made."

(Gonna be some, gonna be some changes made.
(Gonna be , be some changes made)

Gonna,
be some changes made
gonna be some changes made

Goin' home, I've done enough to sow my little name,
goin' where the fields are green and I can do my macrame.
A buffoon fumblin' without a clue, who likes to shift the blame and often feels betrayed.
... there's gonna be some changes made.

Gonna be some changes, changes made
can't keep doin' what I've been doin' these days
look in the mirror, I see a clown’s face, gotta take it off, gotta get myself straight.

Gonna be some changes, changes made
can't keep doin'what I've been doin' these days
look in the mirror, I see a clown’s face, gotta take it off, gotta get myself straight.
(gonna be some changes made)

Gonna be some changes....
Gonna be some changes...
Changes made.

    Anyone you know?
    Me? Don’t think so. You?
    Me? No. Gonna be some changes made?
    There’s always change. There’s forever change. Change is a funny word. We hope for change, change occurs, it’s not the change that we were looking for so we say, when are things gonna change? But change did occur. Took me a long time to hop on that bus …
    Not that long …
    Long enough ….
    But who was it?
    Dunno. Someone Hornsby knew, no doubt.
    You make me smile.
    Hmmm?
