If I were a little wiser
Here’s what I’d do
Well I’d go down South and drink from the fountain of youth
We could live, we could live forever then

And If I were a little kinder
Here’s what I’d do
Well I’d never say another cruel word to you
You’d love me, you would love me again

Sometimes I live in the country or the town
Sometimes I wanna jump in the river and drown
Lately I’ve been hangin’ ‘round
With nothin’ in my head
And it’s better off than dead
Ain’t that just what Jesus said?
Or something like, or something like that?

If I were a little faster,
Here’s what I’d do
Well I’d jump on the highway
Doin’ ninety-two
And I’d see your pretty face again

If I were a little smarter,
Here’s what I’d do
Well I’d go to a church and say a prayer for you
We could be, we could be together then.

Sometimes I live in the country or the town
Sometimes I wanna jump in the river and drown
Lately I’ve been hangin’ ‘round
With nothin’ in my head
And it’s better off than dead
Ain’t that just what someone said?
Or something like, or something like that?
