From the recording Random Emotion


Don’t Mean Squat
They say that virtue is it’s own reward
I think there’s something to that
But when it comes right down to it
If you’re alone in the woods bein’ good, does anybody hear?
Gotta’ have someone to love
Sorry, Johnny Cochran but it fits like a glove
Should I skip the feast?
I ain’t no priest
Cause I tell you what: it don’t mean squat
If you wanna’ live  without a warm embrace,
a lovestruck look on a pretty face
Yeah, it won’t mean squat
Nice goin’; you sealed the deal
Bought a second condo and an automobile
But when it comes right down to it
Chasin’ gold gets old and what you buy is gone the day you die
Yeah, you’re puttin’ in overtime
Racing toward the finish but they pushin’ back the line
You’re pretty slick; but you missed a trick
Cause I tell you what:  the man who’s got
A beautiful child to hold his hand
Is enjoyin’ the view from a higher land…(looks good!)
Never understood why it’s so good
To keep real busy so the time will pass
Y’know, time will pass fast anyway
So you might as well enjoy today
Gone tomorrow, like they say
The thing about life, is it’s your chance to live
Better stop your bitchin’ cause you get what you give
But when it get’s right down to it
If you’re reaching the end, you better hope you’ve got a real good friend
The person who makes you grin
Doesn’t really matter if your ship came in
What’s it all about? There ain’t no doubt
I tell you what:  it don’t mean squat
Ain’t no good without someone to hold
Who brings you the heat when life gets cold
No it don’t mean squat
It don’t mean nothin’
When it comes right down to it
You better make some love
Or it don’t mean squat
Hope you make lots of money
So you can leave it to somebody.
