In the days of gerk, yeah we did a lot of work
Never did, we mind tryin'
But the candles say you better act your age
Before long, you'd be dyin'
So I sit on down with an upside down little frown
Along the way
A little kick to go and we missed the show
And there go's, another day

Well I'll believe in father time, if he won't mind
Granting me a loan before I die, in time

In the days of mud
It was because we could
Settle on another way
But you didn't know so you set
The flood, a little low
Once again

What'l sweetin' the tooth's gonna get the use
And right now I believe it
Like chewing straw through a wired shut jaw
A little pain will recieve

Well I'll believe in father time, if he won't mind
Granting me a loan before I die, in time

[Solo/ Bridge]

Right before the setting sun you think
Of all you should have done
And underneath that sorry moon
You wish

Well I'll believe in father time, if he won't mind
Granting me a loan before I die, in time

    General CommentI first heard this song on C-Jay 92 [A local radio station in Calgary] late one afternoon... I knew from the start that The Villains were going to go far. This song has a lot of energy, wicked riffs, tight drum beat, and goes above the standard of rock music for this era...
    I saw The Villains live in concert in '06. After a few smart-ass jokes that began with this song. They thundered through it without a single mistake, and managed to put a wicked guitar solo at the end which led into a cover of "Born To Be Wild".
    As long as The Villains are still together they're going to take the rock industry to a new level, which will be known as Villianism.

    "2.5% of proceeds from this concert may go to a good cause, or maybe buy us beer for this night... We havent decided"
