Lyrics - Extra Time

No more whisky no more beer
I pretend that I can't hear
That all the things I hold so dear
They say I have to stop now
No more cigarettes, no more wine
I thought I was doing fine, but
Now I have to toe the line
I'll toe the line today

Remember when we drank all night
Talking till the morning light
Putting all the world to rights
Reaching for the sky
Now I have to s-l-o-w down
No more sessions "on the town"
Keep my feet on the ground
Never say die

Old St Peter waits for me
Let him wait now can't he see
I've been delayed indefinitely
I've got other plans
Crazy days are in the past
I knew they would never last
I could see the hourglass
Running out of sand

Singing in planes, singing in trains
Always sunny, never rains
What did I use for brains?
Never alone
Singing in bars singing in cars
Sometimes knowing where we are
Married to that old guitar
Never at home
