Subject: Lyr Req: 'Say We Don't LIve Here No More'
From: Geordie-Peorgie
Date: 18 Nov 08 - 02:42 PM

First verse....

Picture yourself on a boat without water around
Make believe you're at a circus without any clowns
Pretend that you're on a highway without any end
Then empty the ashtrays. Sweep of the floor.
Put a lock on your door.
If somebody calls in the morning just say we don't live here no more

First heard sung by John Denver and lost me wordbook with it in

Please help me 'catters

I found the lyrics on one of those lyrics sites with all the popup ads that don't usually really have lyrics - but this time, it did:
http://www.metrolyrics.com/we-dont-live-here-no-more-lyrics-john-denver.html

No, I can't vouch for the accuracy of those lyrics. HOWEVER, then I found them on the Website of the songwriter himself, Bill Danoff. I couldn't help myself - I corrected a grammatical error on the first line (Make believe your on a boat with no water), and one other spelling error, but the lyrics are otherwise as I found them on the Website. The Website has lyrics to a lot of well-known Bill Danoff songs.

WE DON'T LIVE HERE NO MORE
(William Danoff)

Make believe you're on a boat with no water around.
Picture yourself at a circus, without any clowns.
Pretend that you're on a highway, without any end.

Then empty the ashtray,
Sweep up the floor,
Put a lock on your door.
If somebody calls in the morning,
Just say we don't live here no more.

Draw me a picture of an island without any seas.
Show me a map of the whole world without boundaries.
Build me a home without windows or doors to go in.

Then empty the ashtray,
Sweep up the floor,
Put a lock on your door.
If somebody calls in the morning,
Just say we don't live here no more.

Dream of a time when the tides ebbing now rise again.
Then you will know that to die is not really to end.
Living and dying are both your most intimate friends.

So empty the ashtray,
Sweep up the floor,
Put a lock on your door.
If somebody calls in the morning,
Just say we don't live here no more.

If somebody calls in the morning,

Just say we don't live here no more.



Recorded by John Denver
