It's just a figure of speech
I can't claim to know your geography
but oh, I have all the clues.

Shout down all the Jim Crow laws
you can't have an effect if you've never had a cause
it's true, and I don't know the rules.

And all the time we've been talking.
I've been thinking.

Oh what a waste of my time, I've been going out of my mind
what was I thinking coming here tonight
said a little too much, had a little too much.

Knock back your Montgomery Jack
and don't say to me that you wouldn't understand
it's true, I'm "barely out of school".

Attack and take it all back
and make it all up, ignoring all the facts
it's true, and I don't know the rules.

And all the time we've been talking
I've been thinking.

Oh what a waste of my time, I've been going out of my mind
what was I thinking coming here tonight
said a little too much, had a little too much.

Isn't it a shame?
Isn't it a shame?
Isn't it a shame?
Isn't it a shame?

Oh what a waste of my time, I've been going out of my mind
what was I thinking coming here tonight
said a little too much, had a little too much.
