"Pick Up The Tempo" as written by and Willie Nelson....
Won't you pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home
The singer ain't singin'
And the drummers been draggin' too long

And time will take care of itself
So just leave time alone
Yeah, and pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home

Now people are sayin' that time will take care of people like me
That I'm movin' too fast and they say that I can't last much longer
But how little they see that their thoughts of me...
And how little they know that the beat oughta go a little faster

So won't you pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home
The singer ain't singin'
And the drummers been draggin' too long

And time will take care of itself
So just leave time alone
Yeah, and pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home

Now I'm wild and I'm mean
And I'm creatin' a scene like I'm crazy
Well I'm good and I'm bad
And I'm happy and I'm sad and I'm lazy

I'm quiet and I'm loud
And I'm gatherin' a crowd


So won't you pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home
The singer ain't singin'
And the drummers been draggin' too long

And time will take care of itself
So just leave time alone
And pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home

Won't you pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home
Yeah, won't you pick up the tempo just a little
And take it on home
