A ballad about the joy of a day off.

Busy Not Bein' Busy

What’s not to like about
A night just like this
I’m free as the breeze
I’m in a state of bliss

My clothes are fittin’ loose
My shoes ain’t too tight
Hat’s tilted on my head
Think I could take flight

My feet as light as the air
Got a bounce in my step
Ain’t no hitch in my getty up
Most a day I just slept  

Warn breeze flowin’ through my hair
Gently puffs on my face
No rain in my town tonight
I’m out of the rat race

Busy not bein’ busy
Nothin’ much is goin’ down
Just keepin’ on keepin’ on
Singin’ the happy sound

Busy not bein’ busy
Passin’ ‘neigh the streetlights
Headin’ no particular way
Enjoyin’ this warm night 

Big city is awakenin’
At this witchin’ hour
People are movin’round
Light on in the towers

A kaleidoscope of colors
Red, blue, grey and green
Bright neon mixed with steal
Lasers on a high-rise screen

A cacophony of sounds
Fillin’ the night air
Music’s a stimulatin’ 
Comin’ from who knows where

I got nowhere to go
Got no one to meet
I’ll just keep on keepin’ on
Just follow my two feet 

Busy not bein’ busy
Nothin’ much is goin’ down
Just keepin’ on keepin’ on
Singin’ the happy sound

Busy not bein’ busy
Passin’ ‘neigh the streetlights
Headin’ no particular way
Enjoyin’ this warm night 


A connection to the world
That’s what I feel tonight
I’m part of something more than me
The feelin’ just right

Hope this feelin’ lasts
Hope it makes it past today
Hope I keep this pleasure
Hope it’s here to stay

But if the doldrums catch me
When I’m back in the race
If on Monday a bad mood
When I’m tryin’ to keep pace

Just know I knew this moment
So at peace I now feel
Walkin’ though my town
I know this feelin’ real

Busy not bein’ busy
Nothin’ much is goin’ down
Just keepin’ on keepin’ on
Singin’ the happy sound

Busy not bein’ busy
Passin’ ‘neigh the streetlights
Headin’ no particular way
Enjoyin’ this warm night 

Ya, enjoyin’ the warm night
