Now, I'm not talking tough, Telling the truth ought to be enough I've had my share on the darker side Sitting and starring at a TV screen, Racking my brain over all the things.
If I'd just been there I could have tried things to do I can't help but think of more I could fill my life wothout ever leaving home I could see the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World And even build a few more of my own. (If I had a mind to.)
Quit my job never mind the pay, Maybe go figure out the CIA Chase the paper and pass the bar, Show Iacocca how to build a car Jump up and run a three minute mile, Sit around and watch my baby smile That's what I might do , if I had a mind to.
No, I don't wanna blow my horn, No telling how many souls I've worn And what kind of shoes, when I had shoes I'm still losing a bridge or two, But the troubled water's gonna run on through You can't always win, but you can always lose But I don't turn my head for things that pass me by And I'm gonna have a look around I could gather all the diamonds in the sky Hold every one and never leave the ground, If I had a mind to.
Fly through the eye of a hurricane, Freeze my body like David Blaine Be the first to find life on Mars, Go up and sell a few candy bars Climb a rainbow and kiss the sun, Walk on the moon when the day is done That's what I might do, If I had a mind to.
Somewhere someone's doing everything I've said I don't have to do anything, I could do it in my head If I had mind to.
Sail away and be Jacques Cousteau, Or the Crocodile hunter on a TV show Be the king of the one night stand, Front the Coral Reefer Band Ski Colorado where there ain't no snow, Plant a tree and watch it grow That what I might do.
Go out and buy me a suit and tie, Go to work everyday and be a regular guy Smoking big cigars all day, Be the President of the USA Get a tattoo and bleach my hair, Open a window and breathe the air That's what I might do, if I had a mind to...
