lyrics

This ain’t the kind of place you wedge yourself into,
Just because you left your last place, you outgrew it,
This place demands more respect than you give it.
If you’re not busy dyin’, you’re busy livin it
Up,
You’re busy livin’ it up.


Tick tock goes the clock,
Make it stop time always eavesdrops,
You shouldn’t live here, You shouldn’t be here,
My situation would get a little less severe.


Find another friend,
Cause I won’t be with you to the bitter end,
I can only take the message,
Won't take through this voyage
If you’re not busy dyin’, you’re busy livin’ it
Up,
You’re busy livin’ it up.


“When will you go home?”
I said again yesterday.
“Come on, get on with it,
Find another place to stay,”

But you weren’t listening,
Time to be moving on.




Find another friend,
Cause I won’t be with you to the bitter end,
I can only carry the message,
I can’t take you through this voyage
If you’re not busy dyin’, you’re busy livin’ it
Up,
Bb
You’re busy livin’ it up.


“When will you go home?”
I said again yesterday.
“Come on, get on with it,
Find another place to stay,”

But you weren’t listening,
Time to be moving on.


This ain’t the kind of place you wedge yourself into,
Just because you left your last place, you outgrew it,
This place demands more respect than you give it.

If you’re not busy dyin’, you’re busy livin it
Up,
You’re busy livin’ it up.

about

Charley Raiff New York, New York

Singer-songwriter Charley Raiff’s music is informed by rock, jazz, and classical influences, but their true uniqueness derives from the fact that he's a born and bred New Yorker. The stories Charley tells in his songs are brimming with the bustling and manic overtones of the city that never stops, shaped by a classic New York sarcastic sensibility. ... more
