Too Much Stuff

In the spirit of NBI, here’s one of my favorite Delbert McClinton Songs, in colaboration with Lyle Lovett, and John Prine:

Too much stuff

Big house, big car, back seat, full bar.
Houseboat won’t float. Bank won’t tote the note.
Too much stuff. There’s just too much stuff.
It’ll hang you up, dealing with too much stuff.

Hangin’ out on the couch puttin’ on the pounds.
Better walk, run, jump, swim. Try to hold it down
You’re eatin’ too much stuff, too much stuff.
It’ll wear you down, carrying around too much stuff.

Hundred dollar cab ride, fogged in, can’t fly.
Greyhound, Amtrak, oughta bought a Cadillac.
Too much stuff. Too much stuff.
It’ll slow you down, fooling with too much stuff.

CHORUS: Well, it’s way too much.
You’re never gonna get enough.
You can pile it high
but you’ll never be satisfied.

Rent a tux, shiny shoes, backstage, big schmooze.
Vocal group can’t sing, won awards for everything.
Too much stuff. Too much stuff.
They just keep on going, rolling in all that stuff.

Got hurt, can’t work, got a lot o’ bills,
But the policy don’t pay ‘less I get killed.
Too much stuff. Too much stuff.
Just my luck, counting on too much stuff.

CHORUS

Running back can’t score till he gets a million more
Quarterback can’t pass. Owner wants his money back
Too much stuff. Too much stuff.
You know, you can’t get a grip when you’re slipping in all that stuff.
Women every which-a-way messing with my mind.
You know, I fall in love every day three or four times.
Too much stuff. Too much stuff.
It’ll mess you up, fooling with too much stuff.
