James Taylor - Little More Time With You Lyrics




Gotta watchdog watching me, doggy, watching me packing my bags.
He knows I'm leaving town, I can see that it's a drag.
Why leave the life I love here in the great state of Maine
just to ride that shining rail, just to size that ball and chain?

Oh, I gotta spend just a little more time with you, that's why.
Gotta spend just a little more time with you, oh oh oh.

I passed on the cocaine, said bye-bye to my methadone.
Put down the bottle for one more day, backing off of my tobacco jones.
Still feel like a hopeless junkie, like a man who can't say no.
I look back and there's that monkey, rascal won't let go, let me go.

Gotta spend just a little more time with you, that's right.
Gotta spend just a little more time with you, oh oh.
Gotta spend just a little more time with you, yes I do, yes I do, now.
Gotta spend just a little more time with you, oh oh oh.

I get high and I can't come down, I get high just hanging around.
I get high, I go lost and found, I get high oh I oh I,
gotta spend just a little more time with you, I'll be walking in the light.
Gotta spend just a little bit more time with you, oh oh.
Gotta spend just a little more time with you, just a little more time, just a little more time.
Gotta spend just a little bit more time with you, oh oh....

  7. Scott Leung

    Looks like he's wearing Pharrell's hat XD

    tee cee

    lol, twenty years before Pharrell did.

  8. Gravy 2

    My two most favourite artists in one song ...... what more to ask .... love it JTs lyrics and Stevelands distinctive harmonica ....

  9. Kim Anderson

    I ALWAYS been a big fan of James Taylor when I was a kid. I remember when he was featured on Sesame Street a few times. This song brings me back to my late school days. It was released in 1997. Plus one fact, the harmonica in the background was done by Stevie Wonder.

  10. Phillip W Smith

    This entire album is top notch!! Yet this song really speaks to our more human side.

  11. landyachtfan79

    One of my personal favorites from JT's "Hourglass" album. Stevie Wonder's AMAZING harmonica solo & the irresistible chorus are what REALLY make this one stand out for me!!!!!

  12. Joshua Keys

    Classic right here mane
