Douglas Balmain - “Burnin’ Both Ends” (LYRICS)

Got bills piled up with a stamp says "Late,"

Won't hurt the collectors to wait another day.

Slip some bourbon in my coffee and I put my shades on,

Walk down the street and take in a little sun.

All work 'n’ no play makes a bright man fade,

I put in my hours but I don't get paid.

I've been burning both ends 'n’ feelin' kinda strung, I got plenty to do but it ain't gettin’ done.

No food in the kitchen and the laundry's pilin' up,

my hair's gettin' long and the grass needs cut.

I slept in late, time's slippin’ away,

I always finish what I start so I'll waste away the day.

All work 'n’ no play makes a bright man fade,

Oh, I put in my hours but I don't get paid.

I've been burning both ends 'n’ feelin' kinda strung, I got plenty to do but it ain't gettin’ done.

I close my eyes for a while, let my mind drift away,

I'll rest easy knowin' my toils 'll be here when I wake...

All work 'n’ no play makes a bright man fade,

I put in my hours but I don't get paid.

I've been burning both ends 'n’ feelin' kinda strung, I got plenty to do but it ain't gettin’ done.

All work 'n’ no play makes a bright man fade,

Oh, I put in my hours but I don't get paid.

I've been burning both ends 'n’ feelin' kinda strung, I got plenty to do but it ain't gettin’ done.
