Subject: Bidin' my time
From: ron k
Date: 07 Sep 98 - 12:37 PM

I am looking for the lyrics to a Gene MacLellan song called Bidin' My Time. The first verse goes as follows:

It's a long distance call and I feel so alone here without you / It's a crime and a shame, but I don't have the change...

or something like that.

Oh, darn, so it's not the one from George & Ira Gershwin's "Girl Crazy":
I'm bidin my time
'Cause that's the kinda guy I'm
While other folks grow dizzy
I keep busy
Bidin' My Time

Next year, next year,
Somethin's bound to happen
This year, this year,

And -- Bidin' My Time
'Cause that's the kinda guy I'm
There's no regrettin'
When I'm settin'
Bidin' My Time

More verses furnished upon request....

Sorry folks, I have the wrong songtitle here. It should be "The Call" by Gene MacLellan

Hi, Ron - Tunes.com lists Gene MacLellan as the songwriter for these songs:
Put Your Hand in the Hand
Just Bidin' My Time
Snowbird
The Call
Heaven Is Here
It IS "The Call" you're looking for, right? I would think Gene Graham would have come up with the lyrics for you by now....

Bidin' my time is another, less known Gene MacLellan song recorded by Anne Murray several years ago, and I was mixing up the titles. I will start a new thread with the proper song title.

I would like he written music for "Just Bidin' My Time While The Glow From The Wine Makes A Fool Of Me".   And also for "Born With a Thorn In My Shoe".

JUST BIDIN' MY TIME (Gene MacLellan)

I can't believe that you're honestly thinking of leaving me
Cause I thought that leaving really wasn't even on your mind
I'm drowning in tears drowning constantly nearer to misery
Just bidin' my time while the glow from the wine makes a fool of me.

Over and over I practice every day
What to say when I see you
But when I see you my tears get in the way
Just bidin' my time while the glow from the wine makes a fool of me.

I spend my nights making up things I might have to say to you
To stop you from going yet keep you from knowing how I feel
But till the light says goodbye to the night and your face I see
I'll just bidin' my time while the glow from the wine makes a fool of me.

--- Instrumental ---

Over and over I practice every day
What to say when I see you
But when I see you my tears get in the way
Just bidin' my time while the glow from the wine makes a fool of me...

Oh, what the heck.

You can hear this recording at UnicornMeat.com (or click to play).


BIDIN' MY TIME
Words, Ira Gershwin; Music, George Gershwin. From "Girl Crazy"
As recorded by The Foursome, 1930.

Some fellas love to tiptoe through the tulips. (Mm-mm.)
Some fellas go on singin' in the rain. (Mm-mm.)
Some fellas keep on paintin' the skies with sunshine. (Mm-mm.)
Some fellas keep on a-swingin' down the lane.

But I'm bidin' my time,
'Cause that's the kinda guy I'm.
While other folks grow dizzy, I keep busy
Bidin' my time.

Next year, next year,
Somethin's bound to happen
This year, this year,
I'll just keep on nappin'.

But I'm bidin' my time,
'Cause that's the kinda guy I'm.
There's no regrettin' when I'm settin'
Bidin' my time.

But I'm bidin' my time,
'Cause that's the kinda guy I'm.
Beginnin' on a Monday, right through Sunday,
Bidin' my time.

Next year...

This year...

But I'm bidin' my time,
'Cause that's the kinda guy I'm.
Stranger, so long. I'll just go 'long
Bidin', bidin' bidin' my time.
