Lyrics

Well I’ve been trying to understand the mystery of candles
Burn them at both ends and they don’t last.
All these years I’ve been trying just to find a handle
Yet I always lose my grasp.

Chorus:
When it’s time to go you’ll find me moving slow.
I really just don’t know if I can stand up on me own.
When I hear that song I just want to sing along.
Sit right down and pour me another one.

Everyone keeps telling me, “You’ve got to have a plan, boy,
The early riser gets the worm.”
I have never been the kind of man who needs to stand out,
I don’t mind sitting out a turn.

Chorus

I’ve been trying to understand the mystery of candles
Burn them at both ends and they don’t last.
All these years I’ve been trying just to find a handle
Yet I always lose my grasp.

Chorus

Pour Me Another One
