lyrics

C H O R U S 1
Downtime
I don’t want no downtime
Lost and never found time
No time
Downtime
I don’t break for downtime
Never take no downtime
No time

V E R S E 1
Every second of the day
I’m on it, on it, on it, on it
No one makes me be this way
I want it, want it, want it, want it

Gotta work my mojo or
I’ll lose it, lose it, lose it, lose it
Every ounce I got in store
I use it, use it, use it, use it

This go-getter only goes
No getting, getting, getting, getting
But what keeps me on my toes
I’m dreading, dreading, dreading, dread

C H O R U S 2
Downtime
Headin’ into downtime
Settin’ into downtime
Sometime
Downtime
Hunker underground time
Feel I’m gonna drown time
No time

V E R S E 2
This relentless monkey’s on
a mission, mission, mission, mission
Spend it quick before it’s gone
ambition, -bition, -bition, -bition

Found my path, now all I do
Is beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
Though I doubt if I’ll get to
Complete it, -plete it, -plete it, -plete it

Am I really in this race
To win it, win it, win it, win it?
Or can I not bear to waste
A minute, minute, minute in

C H O R U S 3
Downtime
Never go to town time
Never get around time
No time
Downtime
I’m afraid of downtime
Wasn’t made for downtime
No time

B R I D G E
Can’t make that move
To only prove
That when I give my groove away
I won’t know what I’m missing
I won’t know what I’m missing
I won’t know what I’m missing

C H O R U S 4
Downtime
I don’t want no downtime
Lost and never found time
This time
I’ll pound time
Till my come unwound time
Till my homeward bound time
No time
