JOEY DON’T DO IT

 

She rises for work early each day

She’s tough and she’s straight and her words never ricochet

The wounds that you gave her she wears like a bouquet

It’s crazy, Joey, how she loves you come what may

And though you have gone she defends you like a lion

She says that you’re going through some kind of phase

Strange talk of deserts, Hong Kong and red wine

Of kissing the moon in some beat up old plane

 

Chorus

 

Joe-Joe-Joey don’t do it

Don’t walk out into the night

Mus’ukuthatha ngamawala awuthulanje 

(Don’t fly off the handle, take it easy)

Joe-Joe-Joey don’t do it

Love can give you wings to fly

Mus’ukuthatha ngamawala awuthulanje 

(Don’t fly off the handle, take it easy)

Joe-Joe-Joey don’t do it

 

She loves the dreamers, but not the schemers

She loves the contradictions, but not the lies

She says every home ever built was built on tears

And she’s not scared of crying but she is of wasted years

So she’ll wait like a ship anchored beyond the harbour

And if there is no place to dock she’ll head for the sea

And I don’t know if you know but there’s nothing much harder

Than facing a part of yourself which you know might have been

 

Chorus

 

Just look around

Do you know where you’re going

Such a sad seed I see you sowing

There is nothing to be found in the wind that’s blowing

Just an empty sound, Joey don’t do it
