Lyrics of Skedaddle

Every now and then, for goodness sake
When life comes at me like a stampede of cattle
I say to myself "HEY" it's time for a break
It's time to skedaddle

Skedaddily dee skedaddily doo
It works for me and it will work for you
Skedaddily dee skedaddily dum
Take a break and go have some fun

Every now and then, again and again
When life gets a little hard to handle
Make it your style and pause for a while
Get out and go skedaddle

Skedaddily dee skedaddily doo
It works for me and it will work for you
Skedaddily dee skedaddily dum
Take a break and go have some fun

Now I know a guy and I know why
I've never seen him shake or rattle
As he walks with a swagger like old Mick Jagger
He's mastered the art of skedaddle
He went groovin with a method that's proven
He knew how to have some fun
Never went up the river without a paddle.
He really knew how to skedasddle.

Skedaddily dee skedaddily doo
It worked for him and it'll work for you
Skedaddily dee skedaddily dum
He took a break to go have some fun

You know, I've lived my life and it's been good
Did what I had to, done what I could
Slayed the dragons to secure my gold
I went to sleep young but I woke up old
I never ran from a fight, never fled from a battle
I've always told the truth and never tattled
And never felt guilty whenever I skedaddled

So, every now and then and again and again
When you're burning both ends of the candle
Take a break for your own sake
Get out and go skedaddle

Skedaddily dees skedaddily doos
It will help to chase away those blues
Skedaddily dees skedaddily dums
It will also relieve those ho ho hums

So go ahead! It's OK! Tomorrow's another day
You can't row your boat without a paddle
Get out there, and go skedaddle

GO ON.....GET OUT......BEAT IT........just SKEDADDLE
