Its A Big Old Goofy World Lyrics

Up in the morning - Work like a dog
Is better than sitting - Like a bump on a log
Mind all your manners - Be quiet as a mouse
Some day you'll own a home - That's as big as a house

I know a fella - He eats like a horse
Knocks his old balls - Round the old golf course
You oughta see his wife - She's a cute little dish
She smokes like a chimney -And drinks like a fish

There's a big old goofy man - Dancing with a big old goofy girl
Ooh baby- It's a big old goofy world

Now Elvis had a woman - With a head like a rock
I wished I had a woman - That made my knees knock
She'd sing like an angel- And eat like a bird
And if I wrote a song - She'd know every single word

There's a big old goofy man - Dancing with a big old goofy girl
Ooh baby- It's a big old goofy world

Kiss a little baby - Give the world a smile
If you take an inch - Give 'em back a mile
Cause if you lie like a rug - and you don't give a damn
You're never gonna be - As happy as a clam

So I'm sitting in a hotel - Trying to write a song
My head is just as empty - As the day is long
Why it's clear as a bell - I should have gone to school
I'd be wise as an owl - Stead of stubborn as a mule

There's a big old goofy man - Dancing with a big old goofy girl
Ooh baby- It's a big old goofy world
Ooh baby- It's a big old goofy world
