You Got Your World, (I Got Mine)


Joe he tried and tried but he couldn’t understand what was happening. The only thing he did know was that he was angry. Angry toward all those who seemed to be against him and these days that seemed to be just about everybody.

For some reason I am sorry

that you no more mystify me

You no longer can amaze me

shower haze so you can daze me

Catalogue and then rephrase me

I don’t know but I think maybe

You got your world and I got mine

that’s okay that suits me fine - - that’s ok.

Come on tell me one more story

Show me how you’ve come to bore me

Sophistication it don’t show me

anything that’s come to blow me

away to lands where I could go free

I don’t know but I think maybe

You got your world and I got mine

that’s okay that suits me fine - - that’s ok.

Stay right where you are my friend

I’m sure it’s home to you

and I am glad I realize that I have got one too

I and don’t have to live here

though I visit time to time

‘cause you’ve got your own world and,

I got mine.

For some reason I am sorry

that you no more mystify me

You no longer can amaze me

shower haze so you can daze me

Catalogue and then rephrase me

I don’t know but I think maybe

You got your world and I got mine

that’s okay that suits me fine - - that’s ok.
