Go Away

A silly little reggae song while being competely uninspired one day at work.

I'm driving down the highway only yesterday
(I just want to go away)
I'm tryin' to get to work so I can get myself some pay
(All I want to do is play)
It's early in the morning and I'm just not in the mood
(I just want to go away)
I better get some breakfast yeah I'll get myself some food
(Bring me back another day)

I'm sitting in the office just the other day
(I just want to go away)
There's just so many problems and I need so much to say
(All I want to do is play)
The boss he comes to tell me "need this yesterday"
(I just want to go away)
If it isn't complete we won't be able to compete
(Bring me back another day)

(bridge)
But I'm thinkin' to myself
Should I put it on the shelf
Should I try to throw it all away
Or should I keep on hangin' in
Knowin' soon I'm gonna win
Is it getting better every day

(chorus)
I want to go away to another place
(I just want to go away)
Purchase me a ticket out of this rat race
(All I want to do is play)
I want to go away to another place
(I just want to go away)
Purchase me a ticket out of this rat race
(Bring me back another day)

(break)

I'm drivin' in the traffic tryin' to get myself to home
(I just want to go away)
But the road is full of people say from Washington to Nome
(All I want to do is play)
I'm cruising through my home town lookee here I'm almost there
(I just want to go away)
It's amazing that through days like this I have my head of hair
(Bring me back another day)

Well I finally get me home and the lawn it needs be mowed
(I just want to go away)
But I'm just so freakin' tired Man I just got off the road
(All I want to do is play)
Well I've finished all I've done looking forward to some fun
(I just want to go away)
Then I notice there's no sun and I know the day is done
(Bring me back another day)

(Chorus)
